Sometimes people say “the youth are the future of the church.” At Blue Ridge, they’re part of our joyous present. If you are looking for a place to connect with God and find a place where you can belong, hanging out with other youth that are walking on that same path can be a great thing. It might be a night of pizza and a movie, sharing in communion at midnight in the sanctuary with a single candle, or doing a mission project in the neighborhood.
If you’re a parent of teens or younger children, you can know that we have dedicated adults who have a ministry of hanging out with our youth. They may lead our youth, chaperone youth activities, lead Sunday School classes, or volunteer in the nursery. Whatever the role, our congregation prizes our youth and seeks to support them as they grow in their discipleship.
