This week at CORE Youth Ministry…
If you have ever wondered about any of these questions or felt called to address the sin of racism, parents and youth are invited to join us on Wednesdays September 19 and 26, and October 3 for Facing Racism: Power, Privilege, and Progress. Sue Waecther and Rev. Melissa López will lead us in non-judgmental conversation about these issues and ponder ways that we, as people of faith, can work toward dismantling racism.
If you have any questions, let me know!
See you Wednesday 5:45-8pm. Bring $3 for dinner and bring your friends!
CORE Youth Ministry gives youth a consistent time and place to gather together during the school year, enjoy fun activities, and grow in their faith in a safe and nurturing atmosphere.
We celebrate young people for the great gift they are…
- to their families
- to one another
- to our congregation
- to their community
- and to the world.
Through action and word, we hope to help our youth know what it means to believe ‘God created me, and it was very good’ and to learn to love God and love one another.
Our CORE Youth Ministries program is blessed with incredibly devoted and talented volunteer support who host a variety of youth activities designed to give our youth opportunities to experience the transforming power of God’s love in their lives, develop their individual gifts and talents, and walk along on their journey of faith.
CORE provides a number of avenues for our youth to grow and walk on their faith journey. Beginning with CORE Worship on Wednesday nights to mission opportunities both within our community and beyond to fun fellowship to retreats and camps, CORE provides tons of opportunities for our youth to engage in a meaningful relationship with a loving faith community.
There are many ways to get involved!
CORE – Middle School and Sr. High youth gather every Wednesday night during the school year for dinner and fellowship
Mission – monthly activities involve youth in outreach efforts on local, national and international levels
Media Technology – youth help make videos, create and run computer media for CORE worship and operate the sound board for the band
Music – an all-youth band leads COREworship and sometimes also plays at other church gatherings and some Sunday worship services throughout the year
Art – from painting to music to crafts and activities, youth are creatively involved in many different ways and encouraged to express their faith through a variety of media
Retreats – CORE provides a number of retreats that allow our youth to explore and grow deeper in their faith
