Welcome to Northside Youth!
The Northside Youth, otherwise known as "The Northsiders", consists of the 6th – 12th grade students. The group is currently made up of about 25 individuals from Belton, Temple and surrounding schools and homes.
The main focus of our youth ministry is to make disciples and better equip our young people as they prepare to enter the world. As a means of doing so we have a variety of opportunities available to our students.
Worship and Study:
-Bible Class: Each Sunday at 9:30 am and Wednesday at 7:00 pm we meet in the church's multipurpose room to study the Bible, sing, and pray.
-Devotionals: Monthly devotionals are hosted in members’ homes where we fellowship, enjoy a meal, and most importantly study the word of God.
-Love of Christ: The Northsiders participate in monthly service projects at the Love of Christ food pantry, a local work that helps feed those in need throughout Bell County.
-Youth-Led Worship: On the third Sunday night of each month, our evening worship service is led by the youth. This gives our students an opportunity to polish their skills as future Bible class teachers, song leaders, preachers, and leaders of prayer. On these nights, The Northsiders themselves make decisions about the lessons and songs that are led.
-Camp: During the summer, many of the Northsiders attend camp to further their growth; both in their faith and their relationships with each other as well as Christians their own age.
-Friend's Day Wednesday: Each month we have an activity called Friend's Day Wednesday. This is an event where The Northsiders are encouraged to bring their friends to a meal and Bible study on a Wednesday night. During this activity we have fun, food, and fellowship followed by our regular Wednesday evening class.
-Fun Activities: Throughout the year, we participate in a variety of fun activities such as going to baseball games, water parks, the zoo, the aquarium, hikes, family campouts, barbecues, youth rallies, and many other activities in which we seek to have fun and glorify God at the same time. Check out the PHOTO ALBUM link to see photos of some of our most recent activities.
If all of this sounds exciting to you, we’d love to meet you! Join us at a regularly scheduled Sunday or Wednesday service time or look at our EVENT CALENDAR to find out when our next activity will take place. If you have additional questions about our group, please email or call the church office today. I would love to have the opportunity to connect with you.
