(is what we like to call ourselves)
The world of today is filled with OPINIONS, CONTROVERSIES, INACCURACIES, etc. It’s hard to keep up in finding out what is actually TRUE/TRUTH.
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 a 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 lesson and activities that ultimately lead us back to receiving answers from God’s word, the Bible.
After his encounter with the risen Jesus, the Apostle Paul spent the rest of his life REASONING AND EXPLAINING, AND PROVING to anyone who would listen to him that Jesus is 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.
Here are some of the topics we’ve discussed and studied from God’s word
