ACTIVE CHRISTIAN TEENS
Our ministry exists to REACH out to teens, and CONNECT them with other Christians, help them GROW in their faith, challenge those growing to DISCOVER their ministry and HONOR God with their lives. It is our heart to grow together in a personal and passionate relationship with Christ, allow God's Word and His Spirit to influence every aspect of our lives, and live out our faith in a real way that impacts those around us. As a student, you are on the move with new experiences and lots of change.
We are a group of youth with hearts for Christ. Through video and discussion based meetings, we are learning about Jesus Christ, the son of the One true living God. Our goal is to show that as a teenager you can be LIVING PROOF that God is REALLY alive as you live out His plans for your life! Come join us, and find His plan for YOU!!!
Jeremiah 29:11 states: "'For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,' saith the LORD, 'thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.'"
Get to know us better
As the Tomah Baptist Youth leaders, we have many goals we would like to see accomplished in our ministry, but our strongest desire is to see teenagers focus on bringing glory to God. We realize that the world offers many distractions and temptations for today's teenagers, and we want to be used by God in bringing teenagers into focus.Youth group will not only challenge teenagers in their spiritual walk with Christ, it will also help them stay spiritually focused for the week.
Active Christian Teens offers teenagers a variety of exciting activities and events in which they can meet new Christian friends and be challenged spiritually through the Word of God. Teens also have a chance to meet twice a week for some solid, Biblical teaching and worship with fellow believers.
If you have any questions regarding the information on our website or if you would like to speak with me personally, please don't hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
The Tomah Baptist Church Teen Team
Wednesday Night Youth Group
Wednesday nights are an informal time for teens to get together and not only participate in some of the exciting ministry teams we have during the fall/winter, but to learn from God’s Word about various topics that teens face.
Small Group Afterglows
Small Groups are a way for us to make our big group smaller. We meet in homes around the city once a month on a Sunday night during the school year from 8-10pm. These groups make it possible for us to relax and be ourselves around a small group of friends. These small groups also allow us to get plugged in with teens and families we might not have gotten to know otherwise.
Large Group Teen Events
Each month, our teens hop in the van or cars, and go to area-wide get-togethers with other teens for exciting activities, or just our group has a larger activity planned. Keep an eye on the upcoming events section for more details about these activities.
Summer trips are a time for our group to really get busy. Over the past few years, our student ministry groups have assisted churches in Mexico, worked at a Oneida Native American Mission in Wisconsin, and even headed up a Holiday Bible Club in Ireland! Plus, just for fun, we go canoeing and other trips in the summer, tubing, skiing, and more in the winter. Next summer of 2010, we are planning a trip to New York City. Email us for more details or check us out in person.
Friday nights are gym nights, unless we have a previously scheduled event. Each week we gather at the VA Gym for basketball, volleyball or whatever for an informal get together with other teens in the community. During the night, Pastor Jae brings a brief challenge from God's Word and answers common questions teens face on a daily basis.
