Ministries

LifeLine Student Ministries
Focused on Love, Surrounded by Laughter, and Influenced by Christ's Teachings!


Our Youth programs are for anyone in 7th-12th grade. 

The logo to the right is used by our leadership team.  As it suggests, we are focused on sharing the LOVE as Jesus taught us through Discipleship (loving our Lord), Fellowship (loving each other), and Outreach/Missions (loving others).  We continually seek His will (LEARN) by exploring the Bible during Sunday School, Retreats, Small Groups, and any opportunity we can at our many other regular and special events.  And through it all,  we always seem to find a way to have fun, enjoying the fellowship of a large group of caring students and leaders (LAUGH).

The LifeLine calendar of events is below. If you have any questions about our Youth Ministries, we encourage you to contact the church office.  Members, please see our separate Shutterfly Site for pictures from past events or visit us on our Facebook page.

LifeLine Prayer and Planning

Any student, leader, or parent interested in praying for the ministry and brainstorming ways to continually improve it and it's upcoming events are invited to come any Sunday.  We will talk about upcoming events.  For each, we will look for ways that people can help.  As the Bible says in Eccliastes 4:9, "Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed." (NLT)

SPECIAL EVENTS 

 

Youth Sunday - Sept 10

To prepare we are going to start this summer. We will be having practices after church on 7/16, 7/23, and 8/6

Below are three areas we want to get a jump on (videos of our mission work, music for the service, and finally dance/drama for the service).

Video of some of our mission fields

Some suggestions of our Mission Fields
     - Our Mission Trip to WV
     - Our Outreach to Helping Hands
     - Our Schools
     - Our Jobs
     - Our Sports Teams
     - Our Community Service (mowing lawns, volunteer at camps, etc)

The videos should be short an simply state the following ideally in the setting of that mission field
     - My mission field is ____________________ (Where/What the mission is)
     - I serve _____________________ (Who/Why we are serving there)
     - Then finally how it further's God' plan, helps make the world better, etc

For example
     - "My mission field is my sports team"
     - "I serve my coach and teammates"
     - "I demonstrate God's style of leadership by praying with the team and showing great sportsmanship"

          - Build Your Kingdom Here
          - God of the City
          - Brave (Nicole Nordeman)
          - Made to Worship (Chris Tomlin)
          - I Refuse
          - Until the Whole World Hears (Ending Song)

          - Dance to Carmen's "Mission 3:16" (spy theme)
