Park Road has three main formats for youth discipleship:
Every Sunday from September - June, Sunday School follows worship. Here we take time to study God's Word in depth, asking what God's Word says and what it means for my life. The Jr. and Sr. High Youth are divided into individual classes after spending some time gathering, snacking and praying as one group.
Also running from September - June, on most Sunday evenings from 6-8 pm is our Youth Group for Jr. and Sr. High Students. We have fun times, serious discussions and open conversations. The Sr. High youth are a part of this planning and are involved in making it their own. Youth leaders from the congregation who are committed to our young people pray with, laugh alongside and walk the path of life with these young people. We are always happy to have youth from the local community join us who do not attend our church. Please contact Pastor Julia at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or if you would like to find out more.
Finally, on a regular basis we have Inter-generational Activities with the whole congregation that the youth plan and participate in alongside their fellow church members. Sometimes we serve alongside a local ministry partner like when we plan “football parties” for the men at a mission nearby. Other times we run topical conversations that are open to the whole congregation on important issues such as Mental Health and the Church or Homelessness and Ministering to People on the Margins.
We hope you, your family and your student(s) will join us in this practical, discipleship based, outreach oriented youth ministry.
