Welcome to Youth Ministries!
We currently meet to study the Bible from 9:00-10:00 on Sunday mornings in the Teen Room. We call this Sunday School. We have a separate Sunday School class for Sr. High and one for Jr. High. We define “Jr. High” as those students who are currently in grades 7 & 8. “Sr. High” we define as those students who are currently in grades 9-12. The Sr. High class will meet in the Teen Room, while the Jr. Highers will meet in the Rooms 9 & 10.
We also meet for some games/activities on Sunday evenings with a short devotional. We refer to the Sunday evening gathering as Forge. Which is based on Proverbs 27:17, because we sharpen each other and help each other grow.
We have started a Wednesday night book study using Jim Cymbala’s book “When God’s People Pray.” This was scheduled start on January 10 and run through February 21. However, due to two snowy Wednesdays we will now finish up on March 7. We will watch a video, read some scriptures, discuss both the points from the video, book, and scripture, and then spend some time praying together.
Starting March 14, we will use the same format to start a new study from Jim Cymbala’s book, “When God’s Spirit Moves.” It will still be on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30.
Some important upcoming dates:
March 11 – The second of three classes to discuss the topic of dating (6:00-7:30PM for Sr. High)
March 24 – Glow Bowling (7:50-10:00PM)
- Partnering with the family.
- Developing strong spiritual students with strong spiritual relationships outside the home.
- Serving others for Christ in our community and beyond.
The Selinsgrove Church of the Nazarene believes that young people are an integral part of the Church. Our Youth program exists to lead young people into a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ and to facilitate their growth as disciples for Christian service.
To develop students who will passionately live for Jesus Christ and change their world.
Develop a firm foundation by digging into the scripture every Sunday morning from 9:00-10:00.
The FORGE Experience
Experience Sunday Nights from 6:00-7:30 in the Forge room. Enjoy:
- Large Group Activities
- Bible Studies
Beginning March 4 we will be having 3 weeks of lessons just for Sr. High students on dating during the Forge time. On the 4th we will talk about the purpose of dating and how we handle dating. On the 11th we will talk about who we should and should not date as well as discussing what true love is. The on the 18th we will be discussing physical intimacy. During these the first two weeks you will be able to submit questions anonymously, which will be addressed during one of the last two sessions. If you have a heart for God and want to make sure He is honored in your dating relationships, come on out and participate. Invite your friends.
On March the 25th we will have someone from Thrivent Financial come to talk to Sr. High students and their parents about money matters. I encourage and welcome all Sr. High students and their parents to come out for this informative presentation. You are encouraged to bring your friends.
