Back Creek Church Student Connection Ministry is an exciting ministry for students in 6th -12th grade. We believe that you will find that our youth group finds the right balance of fun activities while at the same time growing in their faith. If you are a student or perhaps a parent visiting our site, you might ask “Why should I or my child get involved with the youth group?” Great question! Let some of our current youth answer this question for you:
- “Youth group keeps me grounded. Everyone shows up in sweatpants and t-shirts and we just hang out with each other. We talk about our upcoming weeks and we laugh together. It brings me closer to God by seeing how I am not much different than my friends. We have the same cares and fears, and he speaks to us all together. God strategically put this group of people in my life to show me just how much he loves me. I wouldn’t trade any of them for anything.”
- “To me, youth group has played a vital role in my life. I have created lasting friendships, and have always found youth group to be like a second home. Also, I have learned so much about Christ and my relationship with Him. I can always ask questions and expect them to be answered in a way that I can understand because everyone else is wondering the same thing I am. I LOVE YOUTH GROUP. IT’S MY FAVORITE.”
- “I’ve been going to youth group since 6th grade. We always play really goofy games that make us laugh at ourselves! I’ve made so many friends and memories. Youth group gets me through the week. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”
These are just a few of the reasons why you should come! Students are divided into Middle School which includes 6th through 8th graders, and High School which includes 9th through 12th graders.
