"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12
XTREME Teens at Victory Church have a desire to follow Christ completely through Reaching the Lost with His message, Restoring the fallen with His love and grace, and training the next generation to do the same. Sunday morning at 9:30am in the main building, we all head to the main service to hear Pastor Paul preach! Then, at 11am in the Community Center we have Xtreme Teen service! Our goal for Sunday morning teen service is to provide an opportunity through small groups for youth leaders to discuss a message from the Word of God and to get to know and be known by their small groups. During the small group times, we break up the teens into six groups of guys and girls separate (grade 6-8; grade 9 & 10; grade 11 & 12). The heart behind the small groups is found in 1 Thessalonians 2:8 "We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.” We desire to not only lead a strong Sunday morning teen service, but also to share our lives with the teens because they have become so dear to us.
Wednesday night at 7:00pm Each week we will challenge our teens to get in deeper into God’s Word and allow them opportunities to discuss topics from the Word of God . We will first have a time to have snack and hang out, then we will open up the Word of God to discuss our topic for the night. Our goal for Wednesday evening is to provide a fun, comfortable and loving atmosphere to open up the Word of God with the teens.
Monthly Events - Throughout the year our teens have monthly events! Some of the events will allow the Senior and Junior high and opportunity to serve in the church, locally, other parts of the country and even overseas! Other events allow them to get to know each other, to get to know their leaders and just to have fun!
We ask for all of our prayer warriors to be praying for our teen program - the leaders, the teens and everything in between. We want to see God's hand move within our teen group at Victory!
Be sure to check back periodically for updated events
