Children’s, Youth, and Young Adult Ministry

Our Children, Youth, and Young Adult Ministries are Transitional and Christ Centered.  What do we mean by Transitional? This simply means that our Bible study and student activities are designed not only to communicate with each group where they presently are, but also to prepare them for their next transition on their spiritual journey.  This allows each group to give back in sacrifice and service to the group or groups transitioning after them.  I Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV) states, “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as in fact you are doing.”

Our Children’s Church Program is for our youth ages 4 to 12 years of age.  Our program is divided into age specific classes and the classes are taught on a weekly basis during our morning worship.   Currently, our classes are Pre-K to 1st Grade, 2nd Grade to 4th Grade and Preteens ages 10 to 12 years of age.   Our Children’s Church Program is filled with great music presented by some of our teen and young adult musicians coupled with great teaching by our numerous adult and young adult volunteers.

Our Teen Ministry for our youth ages 13 to 18 years of age.  Our members meet weekly during morning Worship. Through engaging Bible studies and a relaxed atmosphere, our purpose is to make Jesus relevant to our teens, that they may grow to trust the Holy Spirit to guide their every decision.  Too often we try to make Jesus popular through cultural issues, a culture that is severely tainted and desensitized by the distractions surrounding it.  It’s the belief of this Ministry that if we make Jesus relevant to the culture then, in that, thoughts, decisions and behaviors will change.   Using various formats, we ensure we are pointing our teens to Christ in everything they do.Through events such as our weekly Sunday Bible discussion and group prayer time, outings, retreats, as well as gender base discussion with our mentoring programs, we remind them of God’s amazing Grace and the Awesome gift of Salvation that is offered. These events are designed to teach them the importance of our Great commission to evangelize and make disciples.

VBS (Vacation Bible School)
What’s so special about VBS?  VBS is a very exciting time at Redemption Fellowship Church. Each year, for one week during the summer, we have our Vacation Bible School format. Our VBS program takes place in the evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. each night and includes a class for every age group, from 2 years old to the adults. We engage our teens and young adults in age specific classes as well. Each year all groups learn the same topic. We believe this opens up great family dialogue about the Bible and Jesus Christ, with the hopes that regular family Bible studies are increased at home. Great time and effort is taken to transform our facility and much thought and consideration is put into setting up each class in order to engage every aspect of our students senses to ensure they have an amazing time. VBS at Redemption Fellowship Church is open to the entire community.
