Serving Opportunities

Youth Service Nights

James 2:14-26 talks about the fact that faith without deeds is dead. We as Christians need to serve and apply what we are learning to our everyday lives. In this way, we time out of our regular Wednesdays during the school year and, as a whole youth group, help a ministry that is serving the Body of Christ. Service nights have different times than regular youth groups, so please check back to see times and information for each service night. Please feel free to join us anytime for our service nights!

Service Nights for the 2016-2017 school year:

Nov. 30 - All Youth Service Night – Spending time with residents at a local assisted living

Watch for more dates come

Student Leadership

Student Leadership is for 10-12th graders. Contact Robbie Anderstrom (robbieanderstrom@newlife4u.org) or Jacque Olson (jacqueolson@newlife4u.org) if interested. The number one purpose for our leaders is to grow in their own personal walk with Jesus Christ and then allow Him to use that growth to minister to their peers.

Adult Leadership

We have a wonderful team of volunteer adult leaders who do an awesome job of building into the lives of our teens. Thank you! We always could use more adult leaders. Feel free to contact Robbie Anderstrom (robbieanderstrom@newlife4u.org) or Jacque Olson (jacqueolson@newlife4u.org) for more information on how to plug into leadership and make a difference in the lives of our youth!

What is a leader?

 A leader is one that commits for 2 years to lead a group of gender- & grade-specific teenagers. A leader plans lessons for each week (we do books of the Bible & institute entire youth group lesson times on occasion throughout the year), and a leader commits to make at least 2 contact calls/emails/etc. each week in reaching out to their group. A leader also attends monthly leadership meetings as we seek to grow and develop leaders.

 

What is a helper?

 A helper is one that simply supports the leader – is committed for the majority of times; chaperones; helps with crowd control; gets to know the students, etc. Basically, a “helper” is one that just wants to “get their feet wet” and try it out before making a full commitment to being a leader. As part of this we also ask for the helper to attend the monthly leadership meetings as a chance to grow and develop and evaluate both for themselves and us as staff to see if being a leader is the next step for the helper.
