Bainbridge Youth Program

Gather for fun – food – fellowship – prizes

CONNECT is a youth program for young people in Grades 5 – 12 sponsored by some of the Conoy Township churches.  Each Thursday evening (1st  & 3rd) features activities, prizes, refreshments and a devotional time. Connect offers opportunities for the youth of our community to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and to grow in a relationship with Him and each other. Connect youth outreach was started September 7, 2004.

Meetings are held at Bainbridge Elementary School.  On non-school days they are held at Word of Life Chapel.

Youth must stay and participate from 6:00 thru 7:30 pm unless picked up early by their parents.

First-time participants are encouraged to have parents accompany them to registration.

Phones should be for emergency use only.

9:15 AM Training and Discipleship Electives

1.) Pastor Aaron and Dave Haneman will continue leading the study 12 Unlikely Heroes – learning about the God Who they knew and the God Who knew them and seeking to uncover how God intends to use an unlikely person like yourself, too.

2.) Class led by Ken Rutt continues in the library – In John, we saw how the question marks helped move the disciples and multitudes into faith in Jesus. Now in Acts, we will see how the question marks guide us in understandinghow this solid faith is applied in the lives of the believers.

3.) Ladies Class led by Jan Dvorak meeting in the lower level – Music in the Church – “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth!” Psalm 98:4. This class will take a general overview of Christian music through the years …its purpose, impact and value. We will also look at the theology of songs we sing, sometimes without understanding or agreement…as well as the circumstances and the authors who are responsible for what we sing today.
