Sunday Night Youth is our main program night. We start at 5:00pm and end at 7:00pm.
We start the night off with a crazy group game involving everyone. Something like dodgeball, relay races, extreme rock/paper/scissors, just about anything crazy fun and high paced for everyone. Then, we join together for dinner which is served by other adult ministries from South Shore and some of our own students. This time is provided to give students a chance to catch-up on the weeks events and socialize with all their favorite people. From there we go into our time of worship with our very own Youth Praise Band. During worship we sing, dance, clap, and have an overall good time worshiping God. Then the youth director gives a small intro talk to lead into small group time. Small groups are designed for students to connect with their peers and to wrestle with the human condition and what scripture says about our lives. Students are encouraged to ask the hard questions and relate scripture to our daily lives. After small groups the group comes back together for a short wrap up talk from the youth director and a song or two from the band.
Youth Band and Tech
For those students who are proficient in a particular instrument or are comfortable singing lead or harmony on their own, we have a student band who leads worship during youth group on Sunday nights and fills in during Sunday Morning Worship several times a year. If you are interested in being a part of the student band, email Kathi Sheehan (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let her know your instrument, skill-level and contact info.
We also have a full tech team made up of students who run sound, computer and lights. They are responsible for putting the computer presentation together in ProPresenter, mixing the sound for the house and the band monitors, and cuing lights and video seamlessly to make worship a smooth experience free from distractions. This is a serious group of students with an eye/ear for detail and a desire to serve. If you think you have what it takes, email Kathi (email@example.com).
