“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” - 2 Timothy 1:7
Fear can keep your students from being all that God called them to be.
Whether it’s insecurity, doubt, fear of rejection, or the fear of un-met expectations, fear holds many of our students back. The problem with this is, of course, that God has called us to face our fears and lean-in to who He desires us to be. Scripture is clear: God empowers us to meet the tasks He’s set in front of us.
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." - Heb 10:24-25
Sunday Mornings at 9:30 AM
We gather every Sunday morning to share one another's burdens through prayer (Gal. 6:2) and grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord (2 Pet. 3:18). You'll find us gathered together in the beginning, but divided into guy and girl groups for small group discussions. We meet upstairs!
First, your teenager will learn the big-picture story of Scripture. So many teenagers simply don’t have a grasp of the narrative of the Bible. Key characters. Key events. Few teenagers understand how these elements fit into the story of God and His people. Our curriculum, The Thread, aims to change this.
Second, your teenager will learn what the Gospel is, and how it literally courses through the narrative of the Bible. Not only will your students learn the story of the Bible, but they will see that it is a story of unfailing love, as God seeks from the beginning of Creation to draw mankind to Himself through the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Wednesday Evenings at 6:30 PM
Every single Wednesday, we meet upstairs to hang out, sing out, and break open the Word of God together. You'll often find us playing "hall-ball" or foosball until 7:00 when we start to sing. We hear sermons that don't insult your teenager's intelligence, yet all the while are applied to their particular context.
We Belong to Each Other
We are not born again into independence. We are born into a family. That family has a language, a culture, and a head, Christ Jesus. We want students to buy into the local church and find their identity there in the congregation. We aren’t a party upstairs or a fun night out. We are a living, breathing component of the larger body gathered at Cedar Creek. Students can find identities in sports, band, academics, or anything else; we labor that our students might find their identity as those who are “no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens of the saints and members of God’s household” (Eph 2:19).
We Grow Up in Christ
Developing our student’s relationship’s walk with Christ is something that they can only learn through imitation and teaching (Heb 13:7). So, we will spend time with our students in intentional moments carved out from everyday life to dedicate to the instruction and application of God’s word. We will model for them what it means to live in submission to God’s word and enjoying the blessings of a wise and obedient life in Christ.
