Youth

Current Meeting Plan:

  1. J.A.M. – We will meet each Wednesday at 5:30 pm. We plan to meet outdoors as much as possible and as long as the weather allows. The same social distancing plan (shown below) will be followed that was used before COVID cases increased. Masks are required at J.A.M. except while eating. Also, please bring a chair as we plan to meet outside in the shade.

     

  2. ROOTZ – Our first Worship Night is planned for Sunday, October 11 at 6:00 pm. We will meet under the shelter where the van is usually parked. We will not have indoor, regular activities at the church on Sunday evenings until announced otherwise due to the need for deep cleaning in between services on Sundays.

Andy & Kristy Walters – Youth Minister 

The youth ministry of Lynn Garden Baptist Church exists to partner with parents in teaching and showing students how to live a godly life. We accomplish this by coming together weekly to study God’s Word, traveling to various events, providing outreach activities at the church, and engaging the students themselves in service. 

Being part of a good youth group is one of the most satisfying and enjoyable things for a young person to do! And it all happens within a safe and positive environment where students can benefit from peer and mentor relationships, biblical teaching, and people who genuinely care about their lives. What better place for teens to spend their time?

Volunteer Opportunities

The LGBC Youth is very appreciative to our church family for supporting the outreaches they do with Shades of Grace and Engage TriCities! Without you they could never serve and bless the people that they do, but the blessings that are received from this are yours as well because of the support and prayers that you offer. That is why they want to give each of you the opportunity to be blessed and be a blessing in 2020 alongside of them.

Our youth will be doing outreaches with Shades of Grace and outreaches with Engage TriCities in 2020 and they are asking you to partner alongside them. Here are the ways that you can do this:

  • Help prepare the food on the day of the outreach
  • Help serve at the event
  • Provide items for the youth to take to the outreach – such as desserts, hot hands, bottled water, etc.
  • Pray for our youth and the people they are serving.

Be blessed to be a blessing! Thank you for your help!

Student-Led Worship Services

Our youth sometimes lead the worship services and they do a great job!  On Youth Sunday the youth lead the worship service, so the old way of doing things is gone and the new way has begun. The music is new and there is a different energy in the room. Our next Student-Led Sunday Morning Worship Service is scheduled for Sunday, September 27. Come and watch how the LGBC Youth worship our Lord! Here is a video of our youth leading the worship service on February 2, 2020.
