Why Youth Ministry?
RPC Youth Ministry is not a separate ministry from the ministry of the church. Instead, it is an integral and vital part of our church’s ministry. Sixth-12th grade students are to be viewed as FULL MEMBERS of the church, and we expect that God is working in their lives. At the same time, they are at a stage of particular growth, change, and transition (spiritually, physically and emotionally). RPC Youth Ministry is a ministry to 6th-12th graders that seeks to bring the gospel to bear on their lives as an extension of the church’s mission to reach and equip.
Purpose of RPCYouth
1. To move students towards Christ as they move towards adulthood—Our aim is to prayerfully press the gospel into students’ minds and hearts through consistent and faithful relationships. We are committed to walk alongside them as they move through this stage of life.
2. To invite students into the mission of the church now as they prepare for lifetime membership in the Body of Christ—We aim to equip students to serve Christ, one another, and the world right now, and we are committed to providing opportunities for them to serve alongside leaders. Through this, we aim to equip them for future participation in the church and in God’s worldwide mission.
WINTER/SPRING @ RPCYOUTH
High School Large Group: Sunday Nights in the Firestone Room from 6-8pm! Dinner, teaching, and small groups!
Rob will be teaching on Transformed Relationships: what are relationships for and how God is transforming them through the gospel? How does he use them so that we would know his grace more deeply? We will look particularly at friendship, dating, and marriage, as well as a host of other things that involve both brokenness and the promise of transformation. Join us for dinner and teaching and small groups on Sunday Nights.
Middle School Large Group: Wednesday Nights, 6-7:30pm. Snack, teaching, small groups!
Rob will be teaching on the topic of the Lordship of Christ in a series called My Life is Not My Own. In what way is Jesus Lord and ruler of everything? How is it good news that all my life belongs to Jesus? How do we respond, more and more by grace, so that our lives are submitted to him in every way? Come to Wednesday night Large Group as we explore this together!
