We should question everything!  Things are controversial for a reason, but what did GOD intend?

At NWCM youth group we have a wide variety of ages (12 – 18) within the teen group.  We are small group, but have bold thoughts and ideas in a small group atmosphere where we can feel safe in sharing our thoughts and ideas, with lessons and activities that ultimately lead us back to receiving answers from God’s word, the Bible.

GOALS for teaching the young person about God today:
  • EQUIP – Ephesians 4;12, Hebrews 13:21
  • BE READY – I Peter 3:15
  • WORK – Colossians 3:23

After his encounter with the risen Jesus, the Apostle Paul spent the rest of his life REASONING, EXPLAINING, AND PROVING to anyone who would listen to him that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God (Acts 17: 1 – 4).  The leadership of NWCM youth group knows that teaching our youth (reasoning, explaining, proving) takes time and commitment, as the effects are impressionable and lasting in the young person’s life.
