Our next semester of Community Groups will begin the same week as adults, January 29th-February 4th and it will go until the week of April 23rd-29th. Your students' leaders should be reaching out with any needed information. They are excited to team up with you as parents to go on this journey with your students. These groups meet different times, days of the week, and locations to remove as many obstacles as possible for youth to get into community.
Youth today want realness and rawness, not polish and professional. They want to the warmth of a living room, not the cool of a theater. Community Groups provide that intimacy for students to process life while having a biblical teaching component each week. This a great podcast on what keeps youth in a church longterm: Is GenZ Bored with Church?
We are almost maxed out in groups currently with 400 students and leaders in community! We have 500 who attend ONE NIGHTS and 400 of these are in community! It is amazing! We are currently looking to recruit and add more groups, if you know of great potential leaders to pour into our youth, please let us know!
