Our desire for our Shawnee Church of the Nazarene Youth Ministry is to grow together through the transformational love of Jesus Christ as seen in Ephesians 4:15-16 NLT: "Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He makes the whole body fit together perfectly.
As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love." We rejoice in the continuing work of Christ in our lives that allows us to grow in him every day! As Christ invites us to be in relationship with him, he also gives us the gift of walking with one another in the journey of becoming a disciple of Christ. To walk together in Christ, teens 7th-12th grade and adult leaders gather throughout the week and you're invited!
After Sunday morning worship we gather together and dive further into the word we received in service.
6:00pm-7:45pm We pause our busy schedules in the middle of the week to pray, play, and share in the word together.
During small groups we hold one another accountable to growing in Christ. Jr.High boys, Sr.High boys, and Girls all meet at different times/ locations during the week.
Other Times We Gather
We also gather together for various events throughout the year where we worship, serve, and simply be with one another (back to school bash, camp, mission trip, retreats, service projects, etc.).
