Who We Are
The Sunset Youth Group exists to CONNECT teens with other Christians, to help them GROW in their faith, to challenge them to use their talents to SERVE God and others, and to LEAD teens to Christ.
The Great Commandments
“Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 22:37-40
The Great Commission
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
How we Grow and Serve
1st Step: "Connect"
Have each teen get to know the other teens in the youth group, to share their Bible studies, problems, successes, and help each other be accountable.
2nd Step: "Grow"
These are the teens that want to know more about God and His word. The first goal is to have each teen own their faith. Second, encourage each teen to develop personal spiritual habits of daily Bible reading, prayer, and scripture memorization. Third, have small group Bible study to give each teen in depth study to feed their hunger and develop closer relationships.
3rd Step: "Serve"
Have each teen identify and own their ministry. Learn how to use their talents to serve God and others. This is the first step of leadership.
4th Step: "Lead"
Have the teens take ownership of their youth program. Lead the youth group by selecting, organizing, and running youth events while being a servant leader. Also learn how to conduct Bible studies to lead their friends to Christ.
