Heritage Church is a youth group which centers on learning and living out the Word of God in all areas of life. The youth group meets twice weekly on Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:45pm in the sanctuary and on Sunday morning upstairs in our Sunday School room from 9:30-10:30 am.
On Wednesday nights we meet for worship and for our discipleship groups where we hold each other accountable to what we are learning and help each other to live out a faithful Christian life. Worship is always accompanied by pizza and, very often, games. These will be followed by a time of singing led by our youth band and then a lesson and discipleship groups. The Wednesday night teaching is eclectic, ranging from topical Bible studies, to learning about long-forgotten heroes of the faith, to dealing with pressing contemporary and cultural issues through a biblical worldview.
On Sunday mornings we did deeply into books of the Bible as we study, discuss, and apply them together. As a complement to our study and learning we also seek to have fun both as a youth group and in our discipleship groups by hanging out outside of church as well as by playing epic games on all of our fall and winter retreats.
Heritage Youth has a national and global impact for Christ and is open to receiving new individuals and their giftings to complement our ministries and fellowship for God’s glory. We attend the Defend Conference each year in New Orleans to equip ourselves to share and defend our faith. We serve each year at Camp Barnabus to facilitate special needs students attending summer camp and hearing the gospel. We even send some of our seniors each year both to equip pastors and to serve orphans in Guatemala. God has been faithful to raise up strong men and women in the faith out of our youth group to be faithful church members, citizens, employees, pastors, and missionaries. He has done this because he is faithful to bless the institutions which value his Word. Please prayerfully consider joining our youth group at Heritage, and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
