Our Youth Ministry at Church Of The Good Samaritans is called “ECLIPSE” because our purpose is to, “Reach and Teach Young People To Be In Complete Alignment With The SON”. Our ministry scripture is Proverbs 22:6 which says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is older he will not depart from it. The ministry is geared to meet the Emotional, Relational and Spiritual needs of young people in a relevant way. We meet every Wednesday evening from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
The meeting begins with prayer, after which we move into some physical activity, game or role play. Next is our interactive lesson time that takes us into the Word of God to challenge everyone in how they can grow in their Christian life and impact our world through our Caring, our Sharing and our Service.
Throughout the year there are numerous activities that draw us closer together as a group. We go on mission trips on a local and national level. There are concerts, sporting events, retreats, local attractions & amusement parks and summer camp. In addition we have over-nighters, camp-outs, weekend trips to the shore and bowling & movie nights. We also have an outreach we call “TEEN CHURCH” that takes place twice a year as a way to encourage other groups and young people to join us in worship. We take part in World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine with an All-nighter and Fund-Raiser to raise support to help stamp out hunger in the world. (See “News & Events for more information about these).
This is a ministry that is Christ centered, exciting, challenging, and always current to teen culture. Which simply means, “We Keep It Real!” Come out Wednesday evening to “Check It Out“, you are very welcome. For more information contact Pastor Bob by calling 215-355-1442. Hope to see you real soon.
