Grounded For Life "G4L"
is our parent-led youth group ministry whose purpose is to help shape young adults so that they passionately live for Christ and faithfully apply the gospel of Christ to their lives. We seek to train and equip parents in their role of discipling their children; we endeavor also to train and equip youth to respond with Godward faith to their parents and culture.
The Bible places the primary responsibility of training children with the parents (Deut. 6:7, Eph. 6:4). The Bible also places the responsibility for equipping both parents and children with the Church (Eph. 4:11-13). G4L is intended to give focused attention on these responsibilities. Any youth in junior high or high school and their parents are invited to participate. Both parents will need to be committed to participate even though both parents are not required at each meeting or event.
G4L has 4 components:
We meet for Bible study before church from 8:45 to 9:30 am every other week.
Our G4L youth meeting is once a month after church from 12:30 to 2:30pm. We have lunch together, that Mrs Yeo always graciously blesses us with, play some games or activities together then go through a discussion and study on Being a Disciple of Jesus and what that looks like practically in our lives. Topics in the past have included: cultivating the right heart , watching our life and doctrine closely, fighting the good fight of faith.
We have an activity once a month where we go out somewhere: could be sporting event like Frisbee golf, softball or more fun like a beach bonfire, snow day or game night.
Retreats - we had a summer camp retreat this summer (Aug 11-13th) in Thousand Pines where we did a service project in between our normal fun program and teaching.
