I’m excited to invite you to attend our 2020 Winter Retreat – SpringHill!

SpringHill is a camp located in Evart, Michigan where great fellowship and fun happens along with being challenged by God’s Word in powerful group sessions. You can expect quality speakers and touring bands who are committed to Biblical truth and know how to engage every student with the Gospel and challenge them to move forward in a relationship with Him. The sessions are surrounded by awesome activities and group events, including the fierce broomball competition, a groomed snowboard terrain park, tubing, basketball tournaments, and a ton more!

This year there is limited space available. We will only be able to accept the first 110 students who register! Check out the information below and register soon!

If you have any questions or would like to know more details, please don’t hesitate to text, call, or e-mail me anytime!

Senior High (9th-12th Grade)

Sr. High Sunday School Schedule

The 1st Sunday of the month is “Testimony” Sunday – This is a time where adults from the church are scheduled to come and share their story with the students.

The 2nd Sunday of the month is traditionally our joint ABF Sunday – This is a time where the entire adult classes and youth classes hear what God is doing in the lives and ministries of the missionaries we support.

The 3rd Sunday of the month is  “Hmmm?” Sunday – This is a lesson Sunday on varied topics that get the students to dig deeper in their knowledge of Christ.

The 4th Sunday of the month is “Sunday Serve”  –  This is when the students meet at Mennonite Memorial Home (410 W. Elm St. Bluffton, Ohio) at 9:00 am.

** Students who choose not to participate in Sunday Serve are invited to help volunteer in Children’s ministry, hang in the Fellowship Hall, or join their parent’s ABF Class.

MISSION

We exist to bring glory to God by making disciples who make disciples – a ministry of multiplication.

VISION

Our vision for Youth Ministries is to develop a community of young people who are experiencing the joy of a relationship with Jesus Christ, who recognize Christ’s purpose for their lives, and who seek to know Christ more. We desire for our youth to make Him known to others while simultaneously building healthy friendships and experiencing meaningful fellowship. In general, we desire our Youth Ministry to enhance what parents are doing at home, but not entirely replace it.

We seek to create…

…a place where you are encouraged to connect with friends — old and new.
…a place where students feel welcome and comfortable to explore what it means to know and follow Jesus.
…a place where you can join with Christ in building his church.
