Creekside’s youth ministry exists to…
- lead students to Jesus and a life of following Him.
- support parents as they raise their children to love and follow Jesus.
- build a community centered on Christ and the Scriptures.
- see students participating in the life & mission of the local church.
We have two regular gathering times as a youth group.
A gathering of 6th-12th graders for Christian friendship and mentorship to grow within a gender and age-specific small group setting. Growth Groups occur on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of the month after our Sunday morning services from 11:45am-1:30pm and are led by two adult leaders of the same gender. A typical Growth Group gathering includes a whole group game to kick things off downstairs and then splitting into small groups for conversations around a provided lunch, reflecting on that Sunday’s sermon passage, and prayer.
A gathering of 6th-12th graders that welcomes new students as our youth group gets together to have some fun & direct our hearts to Jesus. We play games, have student-led worship, and spend time in the Word. Student Nights occur on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of the month at the Creekside building from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.
Our youth group also breaks from the normal rhythms of life and goes on retreats and trips as a group.
Getting away together and having intentional time with the Lord is so important. In the fall, we do an overnighter as a group at the church building. In the winter, we have a two-night retreat out at the Aldersgate Retreat Center. In the summer, we partner with Youth Dynamics and go on an epic, multi-night camping trip that includes fun outdoor adventures like rafting.
