1 Timothy 4:12: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.

Youth Groups are often filled with a crazy energy that may seem out of place or awkward or just plain LOUD!! Parkview’s youth ministry loves to celebrate youth for who they are and we are so EXCITED for any person that walks in the door. We want every student to feel that they are welcomed not only by fellow youth group-ers but also the entire church!

PURPOSE: The purpose of the youth ministry at Parkview is “to develop and maintain a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.” During the hard times in life, when you are with your friends and feel peer pressure, and when no one is looking, that is when you can really see the strength of your relationship with Jesus. Youth ministry at this church is designed to help the students strengthen their relationship that they already have with Jesus or to help develop one of their own. That way when they are out of the church in the real world they have something to rely on and have faith in; someone greater than they are who loves them for who they are. Through having a strong personal relationship with Jesus you will want to be closer to Him, and with that comes a desire to get into the Word daily, to spend more time giving back to the church with helping in any way possible, and also be a strong Christian example to anyone who comes in contact with you.

WHEN:The Youth group meets for Bible study every Sunday morning from 9:30 – 10:30 and also participates in the worship service from 11:00 – 12:00. Our Bible study helps to develop a deep Christian faith, and provides insight into current, relevant issues to youth.

Other social activities are scheduled during the month as well. We stay in contact with our youth through Facebook, email, or text to keep up on what’s going on during their week.
