What is G4L?
G4L is our youth ministry. It stands for Grounded for Life.
Deuteronomy 6:7 says, “and these words that I command you today
shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children”
(ESV). This puts the responsibility of a child’s discipleship squarely on
the shoulders of their parents. G4L’s role is to come alongside
parents to aid in the discipleship process through group Bible studies,
team-building activities, service projects, missions and evangelism
training. These strong foundations “ground” a child for a life that
honors God in thought, word and deed.
WHAT WE DO:
o Youth Gathering
We meet once a month (usually the second Sunday) from after the service-2:30 PM.
September Lunch Meeting: September 8 after the service till 2:30p at the Fisher home. Address: 2929 Maiden Lane, Altadena. Corner of Maiden Lane and Dolores Drive. Please park on our side of the street when picking up & dropping off. The Fisher family will provide the meal. For more info on the meeting, please check with Mr. Foster at email@example.com
Parents, please pick up your teens at 2:30pm.
We eat lunch, do a team-building activity or two, then have a
discussion-based Bible study. This year (2018-2019), we will be going
through a curriculum called “Treasuring God’s Word.” We will also
discuss how to know and defend biblical doctrine, how to live a holy
life, and we’ll take a look at some methods for memorizing Scripture.
o Apologetics Training
We encourage our youth to attend the classes held before the
Sunday morning church service (8:45-9:30). Currently, Gordy Cucullu
is teaching a course in apologetics (defense of the Christian faith).
o Group Activities
Once a month, we have a get-together. We may go somewhere like
the beach, or we may just find a field and play flag football or Frisbee
golf. Whatever we do, there will always be food and fun!
September Parents' Meeting: Sunday, 9/22 after the service. Please contact Mr. Foster for details.
Sign ups: Parents, please sign up to host! Mr. Foster would like to see all dates snatched up
September Activity: Saturday, 9/28 from 10:00a-12:30p (or so). The Fisher family is hosting a hiking activity. G4Lers will meet at the Fisher home at 2929 Maiden Lane. Mr. & Mrs. Fisher will drive the teens to Eaton Canyon for a hike to the waterfall. We will then return to their house for a pre-lunch ice cream fest. :) Have your teens bring water, use sunscreen, and wear sturdy shoes. FYI: They will be rock-hopping and may get wet! Questions?
