Pastor Christine hosts a Bible Study on Sunday mornings at 9 AM-9:40 AM in conjunction with our Thrive Classes. All Jr. High and High School students are invited to bring their Bible, their favorite coffee mug and come to the SWC Office for connection and study. This month, they’re studying I Peter.
Student ministry is alive and well at SWC. We are about equipping and training young people to grow and thrive in God while living in the real world. It’s our purpose to inspire students to impact their environment and reach out to those around them with the message of God’s love. At SWC, students can find a place where they are known, challenged and encouraged in their walk with the Lord.
Fusion youth ministry is led by Pastor Christine Martin and Tim Bakies. Fusion gathers on Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM in 201 for their mid-week service. Their UPS Human Video/Drama Troupe meets at 5:30 PM in the sanctuary and is led by Tim Bakies. Each Fusion service is a mixture of live worship, relevant teaching and relational connections, specifically designed for Middle School and Sr. High students.
Creative arts are a powerful way to express the message of the Gospel. The UPS (Uniquely Presenting Salvation) Drama team is open to students in 7th-12th grade, and they’re led by Tim Bakies. UPS meets for practice on Wednesday nights at 5:30 PM in the main sanctuary.
Each summer Fusion Youth attends a Winter and a Summer Youth Camp! 2016’s Summer Camp theme is “Fully Persuaded”. 2016 camp was held in the Ojai Valley in Oak View California. Check out the camp facility.
Watch here for updated information as we make plans for Youth Camps in 2017! We’ll keep you posted as new information is available.
Camp cost covers all meals, activities, camp ground, transportation and a T-shirt. We generally have some sponsorships and other opportunities for students to earn money toward their camp cost that help cover the cost. We are praying that we’ll have more scholarships and opportunities in future years.
