The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer:
My God, my strength, in whom I will thrust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
– Psalm 18:2
Youth Group Mission Statement
1. Preparing to stand against worldly ideas through biblical knowledge
2. Growing in confidence with Christian fellowship
3. Learning to show compassion and love for all
The youth group consists of children from 7th grade through high school that attend various schools in surrounding cities. They are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities that promote the growth of Christian relationships, spiritual knowledge and congregational support. Weekly Roundhouse incorporates devotionals and fun. Singing at the local assisted living center, yard raking, and serving the homeless are examples of outside projects that are organized. During the summer, the youth participate in the DFW summer youth series on Tuesdays and Texoma Youth Camp. Annually, our children also attend a winter retreat.
Leadership and worship training for both girls and boys is promoted through the Lads to Leaders Program. For more detail on this program please go to the Lads to Leaders page.
Other youth group Bible verses:
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
– Joshua 1:9
Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.
– Romans 12:10-13
