DEC 3, 6PM CASINO IN SC
Our group of high school students and leaders aim to represent Christ through our lives, our community, and our love for the people around us. We focus on time spent sharing life together, opportunities to worship together, and events to build intentional friendships with those who do not know Jesus. Our goal is to learn to love God, love each other, and love our neighbor. "Turn to Me and be saved."
“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” (Acts 2:42)
Branches is partnered with YoungLife, a local youth outreach ministry that focuses on bringing the truth of Jesus Christ to adolescents who are the “farthest out” from the Church. We begin by understanding the importance of a community of believers that strive after the same common goal of the one thing of faith in Jesus Christ. With this partnership, our high schoolers are encouraged to attend YoungLife events in order to have relationships with students who would not feel comfortable walking in to a traditional church setting.
“Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for believers in speech, in life, in love and in purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12)
We want to be known as a group that sacrifices for one another, serves our local area, and loves our neighbors so that God’s name will be known. Several Mondays throughout the month, high school students are able to serve and lead the Jr. High Youth Group in discussions and be mentors for them. Our group schedules service opportunities together regularly in our local community and also plans on engaging in service opportunities abroad with our international friends as a part of Branches Church.
