The young people in our congregation are far more than spectators. They are active in the Lord's work through devotionals, service projects, Bible camp, and various seminars and gatherings throughout the year. J. J. Hendrix, our Family Involvement Minister, works with their families to help them achieve and maintain godly standards as they grow in the Lord. If you are a parent looking for a congregation where you and your children will find godly fellowship and opportunities to exercise your desire to serve the Lord, you will find it here at Northwest.
Every month our young people gather to spend time encouraging one another, praising God, and studying His Word, in addition to our normally scheduled services.
High school Prayer Meetings
Our high school youth gather at 4:00 p.m. to pray together on the first Sunday of each month. This is an exercise in faith that strengthens our souls and draws us closer to God and to one another.
Throughout the year our young people devote time working together in various capacities, either to beautify the city, promote an upcoming event, or accomplish some other good work.
We love having our young people gather for some good clean fun. We enjoy movie nights, game days, and more.
