CORE Youth Ministry

Ash Wednesday Remembrance Ministry 1

Friends, each year as we embark on the Lenten journey toward Easter, we mark the beginning of a season of penitence with Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent with a public act of confession and contrition. Acknowledging that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, we stand in solidarity as fellow creatures before our Creator, acutely aware of our mortality. In the face of our transience, we pledge ourselves anew to live unto God’s Word in Jesus Christ, the eternal Word that remains forever. Come, friends and families, join us as we mark the beginning of Lent at our Ash Wednesday service tonight at 7pm.

Dinner will still be served as part of Wednesday Night Connection and CORE will still each together and fellowship before and after worship, so please make time and join in solidarity! Blessings

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 CORE worship 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
