SAPC Youth exists to help students joyfully know Jesus Christ, love Him more, and serve Him better. Keep reading below to see how we fulfill our purpose and please consider joining us for any of our weekly programs or events.
Sunday School9:30-10:25 am on Sunday in the Youth Area
We’re taking a 3-year journey through the Bible, examining Scripture chronologically through a Christ-centered lens. The Gospel Project Curriculum we’re using highlights 99 Essential Doctrines every student should know, shows students how Christ connects with all of Scripture, challenges students to see how God’s story connects with their own story, and helps students see how the gospel transforms the way they think, feel, and live from day to day. We offer classes for middle school students and high school students.
Ignite3:30-5:30 pm on Sunday in the Youth Area
Ignite is our middle school youth group. We spend the first hour playing games and the second hour discussing the sermon that was preached that morning. At times we may switch gears to discuss other books of the bible, creeds, catechisms, confessions, or various other topics. The goal of this time is to intentionally disciple students, helping them to navigate through life using a biblical worldview.
Wired3:30-5:30 pm on Sunday in the Youth Area
Wired is our high school youth group. It follows the same format and intentionality as Ignite, the only difference is it’s for high school students.
Catacombs3:30-5:30 pm on the last Sunday of every month in the Youth Area
Catacombs is our candlelight youth worship service for all youth, grades 6-12. It only happens once a month on the last Sunday and it replaces Ignite and Wired for that day. The focus of the evening is to worship God through singing. We encourage all youth to participate.
Fusion6:00-8:00 pm on Wednesdays in the Youth Area
Fusion is our combined middle school and high school youth group. We spend the first portion of the night hanging out and playing games, then we gather together to worship through songs led by our youth praise band. Each night, after worship, we stay gathered together to listen to our youth director teach through a book of the Bible. The night ends at 7:30 but the doors don’t close until 8:00 pm. Students are free to be picked up any time from 7:30-8:00.
Each summer, our weekly programing shifts its focus to apply what was learned through the year. In an effort to prepare students for the intellectual pressures in advanced academia we seek to equip students with the information and skills necessary to effectively defend their faith. Middle school and high school each meet separately to discuss pertinent issues.
Throughout the year we enjoy many fun events including but not limited to, lake parties, football games, trips to Carowinds, HiWire, paintball, Big Mo, Myrtle Beach, etc.
Each year our youth have an opportunity to serve on a weeklong mission trip. In the past, we’ve gone to places like Chattanooga, TN, and Cherokee, NC. During our mission journeys students lead VBS style back yard Bible clubs, games, skits, crafts, and songs. We also do work projects to support people in the communities we serve.
