S.H.I.E.L.D. Youth Ministries
Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. – 1st Timothy 4:12 (ESV)
We desire to show the real Love, Grace, and Mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ to the young people of this area.
Just like Jesus did in his ministry, we teach through:
When youth strive to do these, they build a shield to protect them from the lies of the enemy.
We offer children’s church classes on Sunday mornings after Sunday School. Classes also offered on Wednesday nights for all ages at 7:00 pm. On the first Sunday of every month and special occasions we encourage the young people to be upstairs to experience the service offered to all. This is our opportunity to dive into the word of God and learn together.
We have a youth board established that love and want to invest in the youth. We meet monthly to plan and discuss events, pray, and seek ways we can be effective in this world for Jesus.
We plan events to promote fun and fellowship to promote friendships within the group.
Events range from Nerf battles to movie nights and much more!
Around the first week of July we have an event called Youth Camp for all ages from 1st to 12th grade. This is a 5-day event at the beautiful Bongiorno Christian Retreat Center in Carlisle, PA. Each year there is a different theme and challenging team building events. This is an overnight event with trained and dedicated personnel to provide the utmost fun and experience. There is a cafeteria that provides meals that are very good and adheres to any food allergy or need. This is the biggest event that we promote because of the indescribable way God moves the young people at camp. You won’t want to miss this event!
UNTO Humanitarian Projects
In October, we travel to Lancaster, PA to participate in missions projects with UNTO. We prepare various things such as clothes, food, irrigation systems, and other needs to ship all over the world to areas needing help. This is a two night trip where we teach the young people about missions and serving.
