How to Stay Up to Date

New! Text messages. This will be a one-way group text (don't worry, you won't get 1,000 texts from every high schooler!) We'll just use it to send out reminders to parents and kids when necessary. Join to get texts by sending Keyword NECYouth to 313131

We love high schoolers so much we hang out with them EVERY week! ON PURPOSE! But there is nothing we would rather do than to spend time with them in the trenches and messiness of life, hearing their stories, playing crazy games, singing at the top of our lungs and sharing the Good News about Jesus! Each Wednesday (with the exception of summers), we'll start with dinner made by one of our leaders or parents and then jump into some songtime where we sing lyrics from the likes of Justin Beiber, Adele and Taylor Swift (in church??? YUP!) We then play an over-the-top awesome game to get everyone moving and working together before coming back to our youth room to sing some worship songs. We then close out each evening with a message about Jesus and how this relates directly to their lives as teenagers and split up into small groups to talk about how we can practically apply what they learned into their everyday lives.
