Candlewood’s Youth Group, led by parents, is for the 6th through 12th graders of Candlewood. Its purpose is to equip our youth to become strong Christ followers, with each one having a vibrant relationship with Christ, and active in sharing their faith. Jesus Christ wants to multiply workers for His harvest, and teenagers are one group that can be especially receptive to the gospel. For this reason, multiplying workers to affect teens for Christ is strategic for the fulfillment of the Great Commission, commanded to believers in Matthew 28:18-20.
During the school year, the Youth Group meets several times a month, rotating between homes. Youth Group meetings consists of members sharing thoughts from their individual quiet times, and prayer requests. The whole group will go through a Bible Study on specific topics, books in the Bible, or issues relevant at hand.
The Youth Group also attends youth conferences a few times a year; one conference in the spring and the other in the summer, Parent Teen Leadership Conference (PTLC). We invite you to connect with Youth Group by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or visiting the Connect Table next time you’re at one of our services.
