Youth Ministry

Our Chestnut Youth Group welcomes all youth in 6th-12th grade. Currently meetings are being held inside our newly redecorated youth room. We will be utilizing our movie screen and projector along with outside games and equipment. Online opportunities are also provided for youth via Zoom. Youth also participate in our Wonderful Wednesdays program on Wednesday evenings.

The youth group has been steadily growing in size, and has already had many accomplishments. They have already had two fundraisers, with the most recent of chocolate Easter eggs bringing in over $2000 to go towards future events/activities such as our annual youth lock-in, future mission trips, and retreats.

The youth has Sunday School every Sunday from 10:45-11:45 in our newly redecorated youth room. There we discuss themes from the Bible and how they relate to our everyday lives, as well as plan our upcoming activities. With the school year winding down and everybody in the midst of getting ready for summer, our next big event will be our Youth Lock-in in June (more information to come later). This will be the first activity for those finishing up 5th grade this school year, as their "initiation" into our youth group.

We hope to continue to see our youth group grow with our different activities coming up, and hope to see some new faces join us soon!

We strive to provide opportunities for growth through our learning, social, and service activities. Descriptions of just a few of the activities are provided below. They include not just opportunities for fun and fellowship, such as ski trips and retreats, but also service projects such as Rise Against Hunger. The group meets on Sunday mornings at the church.

Rise Against Hunger
A church-wide, indeed worldwide, project to feed some of the planet's neediest populations. Basic foodstuffs for thousands of meals are assembled by a few dozen volunteers in a matter of hours. This year the goal is to provide 20,000 meals. 

Youth Lock-in
Another fun and adventurous chance to join in fellowship and fun. There's a pool party, followed by games, an evening meal and devotional, and then more games and a sleepover at the church. Adult-supervised. An annual event held in summer.
