J.A.M. (Jesus And Me) Youth Group
Our JAM youth ministry (Jesus And Me) offers a wide range of spiritual growth opportunities and fun experiences for young people in middle and high school. Led by our Youth Director, Hank Rebele, our diverse group seeks to connect with and learn from one another, serve the community through action and offer a sense of belonging to everyone, regardless of their background. Our youth are a vital part of NPC, and consistently live our church vision in all they do: "Compelled by the radical love of Jesus, we make a difference."
Sunday night ‘JAMs’ are a mix of games, activities and discussion about how the Bible is relevant to every situation we encounter, and how to live our faith daily, without judging others. Questions are discussed/answered in an open manner, so our youth and their friends (Christian or otherwise) are comfortable participating. These evening sessions occur year-round, from 6:30 - 8:30 pm, in our Fellowship Hall. Christian education, using a combination of contemporary materials, biblical teaching and sharing, takes place each Sunday morning during the school year, at 10am.
Our youth look forward to an annual missions trip each summer, and over the last several years, have had the chance to serve God in the communities of Rutland, VT, Buffalo, NY, and Charleston, WV. Other activities include overnight retreats, day trips to water or snow ski, picnics, hikes, swim parties and a variety of service projects in the local community.
We are very proud of our youth at NPC. To learn more, please contact Hank directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
