Sweet Fun

I found this tonight going through some old files. It is my first attempt in youth ministry at putting a strategic plan together. Enjoy.

CCPC Sr. High Ministry

Purpose: The purpose of our Youth Ministry program is to:

 bring unchurched people to hear the message of the Lord
 present to them an opportunity for meeting the Lord
 provide opportunities to grow in their relationship with the Lord
 encourage the student to take hold of their faith and serve the Lord


The goals of the group are encompassed in two words which
gives meaning to why we do what we do:


 Serving
 Witnessing
 Evangelizing
 Esprit de corps
 Teaching


 LOVE Hard
 WORK Hard
 PLAY Hard

Biblical Basis for our Ministry

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.'
Mark 12:30

The second is this: `Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."
Mark 12:31

Love Hard - Students accepting the love of Christ

We have been granted the greatest gift of all time!

-- “ For God so Loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

God has given us the opportunity to have a relationship with him because he loved us so much. The only way we can have this relationship, though, is to acknowledge first that we sin,

-- “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” (Rom. 3:23) and secondly that Christ is the only way to rid sins from our life!

-- “... the word of faith we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. (Romans 10:8-10)

If you desire an eternal relationship with Jesus Christ then he says...

-- “You may ask Me for anything in my name, and I will do it.”(John 14:4)

So you can pray for Christ to enter into your life as Lord, and Savior, ask for him to forgive you of your sins and give you the gift of eternal life.

-- “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God Does not have life.” (1John 5:11-12)

Work Hard - Students desiring to grow in the Lord

 When we understand that Christ has changed our hearts and we want to live our lives for him, then the Holy Spirit will guide us to grow in our relationship with the Lord.
 While understanding that our top priority is to grow spiritually closer the lord, we understand that this means to continually find ways to stop doing the things which separate us from the Lord(sin), while expanding the time we do things which bring us closer to the Lord. We also understand that this is a life long process which should always be our top priority.
 As we continue to grow in the Lord our faith should develop into a greater understanding of our gifts and how the Lord desires to use those spiritual gifts for ministry purposes.
 Our youth program is and will continue to be a place where students can grow spiritually to understand their personal spiritual gifts and ministries.
 The youth program will also be a place where students can experiment with their own ministries while being lead by professional and volunteer ministry leaders.

Not really sure what happened to the play part. I probably got bored and decided to just start playing. :)
