Jr. High Youth Mission Trip: Sunday, June 24 through Friday, June 29
Jr. High students are invited to experience a “Week of Hope” in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Students will learn Christ-like empathy and compassion for others as they meet “the needs of people from a wide variety of age groups and walks of life through community service.”  They’ll develop friendships with the people being served, with other teams, and with their own youth group. Projects might include the following … helping in a local food kitchen, helping residents in assisted living, doing general yard work, volunteering with local nonprofits or volunteering at a community center. Fund-raising opportunities will be available.

Monthly ALL PRO DAD’S DAY at Our Redeemer!

All Pro Dad’s Day is a national program that provides an opportunity once a month for dads to spend quality time with their children aimed to strengthen their relationship with each other and allow them to engage in meaningful conversations. This monthly breakfast ‘date’ will give dads an opportunity to connect with their kids and with other dads. “All Pro Dad’s Day” is a simple way for you to become an uncommon father and influence your children in significant ways,” says Tony Dungy, an All Pro Dad National Spokesman. All dads and their kids are invited to join us at Our Redeemer in the cafeteria for this exciting opportunity! Invite friends, family and neighbors – all dads and their kids are welcome! Register here!
The Forge Senior High Youth Ministry

High school is a crucial time for students who face many positive and negative influences on a daily basis. The Forge is a ministry that focuses on peer relationships, leadership skills and building one another up. We have several meeting and activity opportunities that will encourage long-term, positive relationships among students while looking at God’s Word to identify our role in the world as well as serve others in love.

Sunday morning Bible study group will meet at 8:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings, led by Kirsten Willer. The group will meet weekly outside the Media Center and will wrap up in time for 9:30 worship.

We’ve expanded our Sunday evening fellowship gathering to twice a month to further foster relationships and encouragement with one another. Beginning in February we will meet on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of the month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Activities include food, fellowship, games and Bible-based discussions on topics and situations teens face on a daily basis.
