1 Corinthians 16:13 charges us to “stand firm in the faith”. At Mt. Hope Church, we’ve named our youth ministry “Firm Faith” because of our desire to see teens experience and develop a faith that will last them well through their adult years. Led by Pastor Justin and a team of dedicated adult leaders, Firm Faith youth group is all about building relationships for Jesus, about Jesus. We meet weekly during the school year and hold monthly fun events and service opportunities.
Youth Group (Sundays, 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the church gym)
Loud, energetic, passionate and real – our youth group is to be experienced at top volume! Every Sunday, teens from grades 4 on up meet for a great time of hanging out, singing praise songs, playing games, doing activities, praying, and being at home with God. We get a little silly, have a lot of fun, focus on growing our faith. Friends are welcome!
Firm Faith is involved in a number of smaller outreach projects during the year (once per month). These include baking cookies for widows, handing out clothes to the homeless, and raking yards. We also go on a week-long mission trip during the summer. In the past, we’ve traveled to Wisconsin, Tennessee, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois to serve for Christ.
Events and Activities
One of our goals at Firm Faith is to reach out to the teens of the community and invite them into church, and one of the best ways to do that is with fun events! We try to do at least one trip or event each month, such as going to a Christian concert, throwing a lock-in, or doing a progressive dinner.
