Why Activities?

The purpose of the Activities in the WBC Youth Ministry is to Encourage, Exhort, Edify, and Evangelize through Excitement, Fun, Preaching/Teaching, Food, & Fellowship. 

 

Here is a summary of what we have done in the past few months, and what we are doing in the coming months:

March:

March 7/8th           C.A.C.S. Tournament

March 12-14th       Junior High M.A.A.C.S Bible Quiz Trip (Kansas City, MO)

March 19th            T2 Ladies Activity (7th – 12th grade young ladies)

  • Titus 2:3-5 is the basis of this activity. The message of those verses teach us the importance of ladies in the church teaching the young ladies of the church important life lessons.  For these activities (generally 6:30-8:30pm), a different lady from the church teaches the teen girls a life skill and gives them a biblical challenge.  It is not only a time of fun, friendship, and fellowship, but also a chance to facilitate discipleship and the application of Titus 2:3-5.

March 20-22nd      Elementary M.A.A.C.S Bible Quiz Trip (Kansas City, MO)

  • Adults (Pastor Jono, Dante Cardenas, Tricia Chaney, and Cheryl Manney(?))

March 24th            Youth O.F.F. (Operation Fun and Fellowship – all 7-12th grade teens)

  • These ‘quick’ activities (around an hour and a half) are simply designed to encourage unity and fellowship within our youth group. Teens are encouraged to bring unsaved friends to visit the WBC evening service and then attend the activities with other teens their age. There is generally 1 OFF activity per month during the school months.

May 24/25th         Youth Work-a-thon / Fundraiser: (All 7-12th graders, + Jr. campers?)

  • This is a chance for the teens to earn some much needed money for summer activities.  It is both a service activity and a fundraiser.  Here is how it works:
  • Each teen will be responsible to earn their own “sponsors.”  The sponsors will either sponsor them on a per-hour or flat rate basis. The teens will work on church projects and helping with projects at the elderly homes of members.  There will be no cost to the elderly nor the church.  All proceeds will come from sponsors and will go toward summer activities.

  • This is designed more for young people who like to do aggressive hiking and backcountry camping. Your young person will be given an opportunity to see the incredible handiwork of God while at the same time be challenged from God’s Word. This activity is not for those who do not like to hike hard and ‘rough it’ in the mountains. It will be very challenging! We will be backpacking into the mountains for about 3-4 miles and then camping for 3 days (2 nights). Prior mandatory meetings will be set up in preparation for this activity. The Cost of this trip will be $10 (plus all necessary personal equipment—much can be barrowed).

Other Info:

          Sunday Morning Bible Study: Evangelism

  • Our Sunday Morning Sunday School Study has focused on the topic of Evangelism for the past several months.  We are coming to the end of our study.  I’m interested in having some parents share their testimony with the teens to close out the study.  If you are interested/available, please talk with me.  After we are finished with this study, we will be doing a short study on the use of talents for ministry (a spiritual gifts study), then we will be doing a split session: The guys will be doing a study on leadership and the young ladies will be doing a study focused on Christian womenhood.

          Wednesday Night Bible Study:       Proverbs       

  • Currently we are studying through the practical book of Proverbs.  Our Wednesday night summer programs consist of competitive outdoor games, and a Bible Study. Teens are encouraged to wear more athletic (but still modest) clothes to the youth program. The preaching and activities are designed for both saved and unsaved teens. Each teen is also encouraged to bring a friend(s) to this program as there will be a gospel presentation at some point of each night. We will be continuing our Bible Study in the book of Proverbs throughout the summer.

          Bible Quizzing: 1 & 2 Corinthians

  • Now is a perfect time to get involved with Bible Quizzing!  The quiz year runs from April to April, so we are beginning a new passage.  The passage for this coming year is 1 & 2 Corinthians.  If your young person is interested on getting ahead, they can start memorizing 1 or 2 Corinthians chapter 1.
  • In both the Sunday Night Bible Quiz Competitions and the Friday Morning Jr. and Sr. High National Practices, all teens are invited to come and practice, quote, and compete. The Sunday night (5-5:45pm) intramural competition is geared more toward the entire youth group competition, while the Friday practices are geared more toward accountability and preparation for future competitions in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Realizing that it is not all about the competition, we will spend time discussing the rich doctrine of each passage.
  • Please realize that your teen does not need to plan on participating in future tournaments in order to come to quizzing. Everyone is invited to participate as we enjoy the accountability of God’s Word.
