Thought for 2017 – "A Time To Grow Up"

Welcome to the Wampee Baptist Church Youth Ministry!

Wampee Baptist Church has a wonderful, vibrant and growing youth group.  And God is truly moving and working in our midst.  We have recently seen proof of how the Holy Spirit continues to work in the hearts and lives of even the younger ones.  For example, we have witnessed God work His miracle of salvation among our group, watched them follow the Lord in baptism and are continually growing with new members as a result of our youth inviting their friends.  Their growth in the Lord is evident  as we study His word weekly in a variety of ways.  We can see their understanding of the Bible growing deeper, their faith in God growing stronger which is evident in even things as simple as their prayer request, their questions growing deeper and their faithfulness in attendance getting stronger.  We love each and every one of our youth and desire to see God continue to convict, save, nurture and grow these boys and girls into the strong and faithful leaders of the next generation.

Jeremiah 1:7-9

New King James Version (NKJV)

7 But the Lord said to me:  “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak.

8 Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord.

9 Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.

Youth Service Schedule

“Sunday School”

Each Sunday morning @ 10:00 AM – 10:45 AM

A great time for our youth to really focus in on the deeper truths of God’s word.  Students read, study, explore ask and answer questions based on our Sunday School curriculum.  No subject of the Bible is off limits or steered away from, but is presented in a manner which is age appropriate, understandable and leaves students with the ability to apply those truths to their lives.

“Sunday Evening Group Meetings”

Each Sunday Evening @ 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM

The WBC Youth group meets again each Sunday evening.  This is a great time for students to continue to learn about God’s word, but in a slightly more relaxed atmosphere.  Sunday evening meetings include Bible lessons, questions and answers and  Bible related games.

“Wednesday Night Bible and Drama”

Each Wednesday Night @ 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Each Wednesday night, the WBC youth group joins together for a time study, fellowship and fun.  Each meeting consist of snack time which consist of anything from drinks, chips and cookies, ice cream, or from time to time, even pizza or spaghetti dinners.  During snack time, students all take turns sharing the most memorable “Good Thing” that God has done for them during the past week.  They are reminded often of the following verse:

James 1:17

New King James Version (NKJV)

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Wednesday nights also include small Bible studies.  These short studies are meant to encourage our youth to think hard about the scriptures and how they apply to them as young people.  Also, the youth are engaged in learning God’s word through drama skits, which after much practice, are presented to the church as “Special Presentations” during Sunday morning services.  Finally, when the weather is nice, outdoor activities close out our night of fellowship.  Games such as basketball, kickball, four-square and Frisbee are among the favorites.
