Youth Ministries

 

Rochester Christian Reformed Church aspires to include all ages in worship, discipleship, and mission. We have a joint youth ministry with Webster CRC. The mission of the youth ministry is to provide opportunities for our youth to be strengthened in their relationship with God, with fellow Christians, and with Christ's Church. In contemporary society young people experience pressures and temptations that in some ways are unlike, and indeed, more intrusive than those experienced by previous generations. Our discipleship model emphasizes relationships. Friends are always welcome! Through prayer, conversations on faith and life, service in the inner city (www.flowercityworkcamp.org/ and http://www.cameronministries.org/), SERVE mission trips (https://www.youthunlimited.org/serve/), youth retreats and events to build community, we hope to nurture our youth in a sincere faith that is lived out beyond church walls, even as they are also part of multi-generational community of believers. Youth share in activities such as:

  • Reading powerful Bible stories that shape our identity
  • Discussions that help us all grow in faith
  • Small groups where youth share what is on their hearts and build community with others
  • Awesome games that help them let their guard down and build relationships
  • Spending time with adults other than parents and family who care about what is happening in their lives.
  • Interacting with friends who accept them no matter what.

Junior High Youth (grades 6 through 8) are part of "Koinonia Night" on Wednesdays. On these evenings, youth may have dinner with friends or family starting at 6:00 p.m. Jr. High Youth Group runs from 6:30 - 8:00 PM

 

Senior High Youth Group meets weekly on Sunday evenings from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. Youth spend time in much of the same activities as the Junior Youth Group with a focus on personal relationships and dealing with pressures of being a teenager in this modern world.
