Discipleship is the core ministry of our church. Members are assigned to a small group, overseen by a member of the presbytery. Small groups meet weekly.
Small groups use curriculum developed by Sr. Pastor Patrick McGrew. Curriculum moves those committed to discipleship through five staged of Christian maturity.
All members are encouraged to schedule a yearly one on one meeting with the Pastor.
What is Anotha Level U’th? It is a youth ministry for junior high and high school students (7 th -12 th grades). Our vision is to charge, train and release the next generation into purpose by amplifying the voice of the Lord. We want to see youth saved, healed, set free, discipled, equipped, empowered, and serving.
We hold youth services every Sunday. Services includes lessons, group discussions and fellowship. This is a time when students can have fun, make great friends, and grow in their relationship with God.
Anotha Level U’th is governed by a council of adults and youth. We encourage youth to joins us and get connected to other youth in the church who may be going through the same things they are. The council also likes to plan outings for fellowships and ministering.
The Youth Council is passionate about junior high and high school youth loving God with their whole heart, reaching others with their whole lives, and making disciples with the whole Gospel. Through each of our teaching times, service projects, and special events, it is the desire of the Youth Council that our youth would fall madly in love with the Father and understand the huge plan He has for their lives.
