Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12)
The Teen Ministry of Hope Christian Church reaches out to involve all teens in active and fun experiences, designed to help them grow closer to the God who created them and has real purpose for their lives. We want to connect teens to peers and adults who will be positive influences and true friends during these important years. We hope to emphasize to our teens that loving God and loving other people are the two most important things in life, and real life is found only through a relationship with Jesus.
Throughout the year we have Sunday school classes for 6th-8th graders and 9th-12th graders, each week at 9:30 in the teen room. We strive to present the bible as relevant and important to helping our teens get the most out of life. They’ll also have time to connect with friends and pray together.
REVERB is our Wednesday night teen program that meets each week (Wednesdays at 6pm, @ Hope) throughout the school year (September – May.) This is our primary environment for teens to grow closer to God, learn about practical ways they can live for him, and experience fun times of worship and some wild games with our teen director and his crew!
In addition to our regular programs, we have several unique events and trips for our teens each year, including Round Lake camp weeks, service projects, and our HANNYEELIB overnight party each December.
Please contact the office with any questions or for more information on how you can get involved.
Join us on the following dates for these fun Fall events!:
Wednesday, October 23rd – FitMeUp Youth Group Night!
Location: FMU Avon, 1022 Jaycox Rd, Avon OH
Cost: suggested $3 donation
Time: 6:30PM to 8:00PM
Leo’s good friend Theo, who spoke at last year’s HANNY, is hosting multiple area youth groups on Wednesday October 23. We will NOT meet at Hope for Reverb that night – instead we’ll all meet directly at FMU Avon. So drop off your teen and pick them up from the FMU facility. It’s going to be a “fit & fun” worship night.
