River Youth, students grades 6-12, meet Wednesday nights, 6:30-8:00 pm at River of Life in the Youth Room (near Relatte). Our student ministry focuses around “proclaiming the Gospel boldly amongst our peers” (Jeremiah 1:6-8). We are taking the students through the Grow Curriculum. Contact the church office for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org or (319) 393-3709.
Every Sunday our students gather together by the drum cage in the sanctuary immediately after church to recap the sermon and walk through our LIFE Point questions. Students are invited to join us on Sundays at 10am for church and to stay afterwards as we walk back through what we learned from God’s Word that morning.
On May 24th we will celebrate all that God has done this year in our youth with our end of the year party. We will also be welcoming our current 5th graders who will be joining us next schoolyear as they “Level Up” into 6th grade and our youth program.
River Youth will not meet on May 31st because of the end of the schoolyear. We will also not meet on June 7th due to it being our Youth Ministry Fellowship network’s Care Week.
The week of June 4th-9th we will be partnering with the other Cedar Rapids churches in our Youth Ministry Fellowship network for the 2nd of our 3 “Dare 2 Share” campaign events for 2023. Our Care Week will focus on providing opportunities for our students to serve churches or other ministries in town over the course of a week to care for those in our city. More specific details on the participating ministries will be available soon.
River Youth will be meeting on the following Wednesdays this summer:
On August 16th we invite all 2023-2024 River Youth students and their parents out for a pre-schoolyear meeting, where we will preview plans for the year.
River Youth for the 2023-2024 school year will launch on Wednesday, August 23rd. We welcome any students grades 6-12 to join us as we kick off the new schoolyear.
