Yarrow Alliance Youth exists to provide a dynamic, high-energy, Gospel based community where activities and opportunities for growing, connecting, serving and leading will enable middle and high school students to discover the unique importance of a personal faith in Christ and the life giving power the Gospel has for them, their friends, families and schools. Join our Facebook group or contact Caroline at email@example.com for more information.
Our Core Values are:
1. Gospel Based – Foster spiritual growth through study and discussion of the Bible.
2. Fun Connection – Create such a supportive, fun-loving environment that sharing the Gospel with friends will be a natural outgrowth of every youth group activity.
3. Outward Focused – Build a community of Christian teens in the Yarrow area that powers a growing movement of Christian students working to bring spiritual renewal to their friends across the entire community.
7pm – 9pm
location + events changE from
week to week
Based on the
“CONNECT, GROW, SERVE, LEAD” model for our program.
Wednesday #1 and #3 of each month: Small group Bible study night with students and their youth leaders. They will meet in a predetermined place (church, someone’s home, etc.) in designated age groups and have an opportunity to get into God’s Word and grow in knowledge and truth.
Wednesday #2 and #4 of each month: All the students and leaders from Gr. 7-12 will meet together and connect with some planned activities and games (planned and led by students in our leadership program and by adults from the church) and have a short teaching component (devotional taught by the pastor or leader) at the end of the night.
Months with 5 Wednesdays: we will either participate in or create some sort of a service project/worship ministry for the students and leaders. There will also be other weekend activities throughout the year, including our annual youth retreat!
We want to build and equip students to lead. Pastoral staff and core leaders will mentor and disciple key students who display leadership qualities and have a desire to grow in this area and use their gifts in Student ministries. There would be a commitment to meet once a month for two hours for training and studying, and to begin to take on responsibilities for planning some of our Wednesday nights together with leaders and parents.
