Message from Blake-
The warmth and welcome I have received from this community is simply phenomenal. I am so excited to get to work with these youth and the rest of the congregation. There are so many great opportunities for all of us to participate in some faith, fellowship, and a little tomfoolery.
The theologian, William Law wrote in his work, A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life, “If we are called to be thankful, to be wise, to be holy, they must show forth in our lives. If we are to be new people in Christ, then we must show our newness to the world. If we are to follow Christ, it must be in the way we spend each day.” It has only been a few days here at River Oaks Baptist, but each day has most definitely provided numerous examples of how this community is living out that calling. It is going to be such a privilege to work with you in shining our newness every day, in the same way your warmth and welcome has been shining on me.
Middle and High School Youth Ministries
The youth ministry at ROBC is an exciting and challenging experience for teens. The ministry is focused on giving students a fun and dynamic resource to guide them on the journey to developing their own personal relationship with Jesus Christ. From 7th grade to 12th grade, we offer exciting opportunities to build strong relationships with other students, and learn how the Bible relates to everyday life. Come and join in!
For students, the Youth Ministry is a place to be yourself, build relationships, and grow spiritually as you learn biblical ways to deal with the daily decisions and challenges that are part of being a teenager today...and have a great time in the process!
For parents, the youth ministry is a worthwhile, safe and culturally relevant place that you can feel good about.
Students, come spend time here and find a place where you belong, can connect with other youth, and be introduced to Jesus and a growing relationship with Him.
Sunday Morning Bible Study
The youth are engaged in Bible study each week through our Sunday Morning Bible Study time. The studies use various curriculums, themes and presentations taught by parent volunteers. We approach Bible study in a holistic approach so that the youth learn biblical concepts that they can apply to their life situation. We meet each Sunday after Worship in the Youth Room at 11:15 AM.
We offer opportunities for fellowship to help build community, develop friendships and provide an avenue of Christian fellowship. Some examples of our fellowships include: bowling, laser tag, movies, and fun parks (i.e. Main Event Entertainment, Schlitterbahn).
