As of

Welcome to The Village Youth

     We partner with families to help youth become disciples Jesus!
     
     This means:

  • We help each student to know and follow Jesus. We'll walk alongside our young people (and their parents) as they develop their relationship with Jesus, and as they discover the joy, love, and wisdom that Jesus offers.

  • We help each youth to understand that being a disciple of Jesus is a life-long endeavor. We teach that our Christian faith needs to shape our values, and influence our relationship choices.

  • Each youth is encouraged to discover how they can join God's mission by serving God in their everyday life. We believe our youth can reflect God’s goodness right where they are — at home, at school, or in their community.

  • We want our students and leaders to experience authentic relationships with each other and with their mentors here. Together we'll have fun, challenge each other, support one another, and walk through both the good and tough times together.

What we do (click the links for more info):

  • Sunday Youth Church (SYC)

    • SYC is on pause during the pandemic
    • Takes place nearly every Sunday during the contemporary worship service in the Youth Room. (excepr for the 1st Sunday of the month, Communion Sunday. These Sundays we all worship together in the Sanctuary!)
    • Although SYC is open to all youth, we encourage high school aged youth to consider attending the adult contemporary service in the sanctuary. We believe that to be the best place for their growth and engagement in our church on Sunday mornings. That said, they're ALWAYS welcome in SYC!
  • igNite (Weekly Junior High Ministry)

    • igNite meets every Wednesday Night from 7:00p-8:00p on Zoom. Email Ed to get access to the Meeting ID. eburton@tvpchurch.org
    • Once our Zoom days are over and we meet in person again.. we will meet in Westminster Hall, and we will follow our COVID-19 safety guidelines.
    • Each igNite incorporates a mixture of games, small group discussion, large group learning experiences... and more!   
    • Bringing a Bible is optional, but encouraged! We'll be using the Bible a lot.
  • EDGE (Weekly Senior High Ministry)

    • Edge meets every Sunday Night from 7:00p-8:00p on Zoom. Email Ed to get access to the Meeting ID. eburton@tvpchurch.org
    • Once our Zoom days are over and we meet in person again.. we will meet in Westminster Hall, and we will follow our COVID-19 safety guidelines.
    • In Edge we lean into the topics most necessary for a high school youth to learn about! We spend time studying the Bible, sharing our ideas and stories, and we cultivate meaningful freindships rooted in Jesus.
    • Bringing a Bible is optional, but encouraged! We'll be using the Bible a lot.

Would you like to serve our youth or get to know them, but you aren't able to commit to serving with the youth ministry on a regular basis?

Well, we have an idea for how you can serve our youth and get to know them!... You can host an Edge or igNite ministry night at your home! If you're interested in hosting a night of youth ministry in your home, please let us know by emailing Ed at eburton@tvpchurch.org

How we communicate with parents and youth:
