ABOUT

Passionate Youth Reaching Out is the youth group of Hawkwood Baptist Church.

WHO: Students in Grades 7-12

WHERE: 20 Hawkwood Drive

COST: Most things that we do are free.

WHEN: Check the calendar.  There is an event going on most Friday’s, Sunday School is at 9:30 and Discipleship Groups meet at various times.

Our youth group is focused on Truth, Relationships and Reaching Out in Jesus Name.  We work towards these goals through 4 primary means.

Friday Night Youth Events.

A typical Friday night event starts at 7 pm  and goes to 9:30pm.  Our events alternate weekly between Jr High, (Grades 7-10) and Sr High (Grades 9-12).  During out youth events we spend time having fun together, learning in large groups, and discussing in small groups.  You can find current events here.

Discipleship Groups

These groups meet weekly and require for students to make a commitment to the group for attendance and to do the homework.  Our Discipleship Groups are currently exploring the Spiritual Disciplines.  This is because we want to do more than simply learn what Jesus taught, we also want to live what he taught and that takes practice.  We also take time each week to discuss a current headline from a Christian point of view.  Finally, all students use the Gallup StrengthsFinder tool to discover their top 5 strength themes and learn how to maximize them individually, and also as a group.

Sunday Morning Discipleship Group

We meet Sunday Mornings in the youth room at 9:30 (during the Traditional Service).  All of the same elements of the other Discipleship Groups plus a study using the “Explore the Bible” curriculum.

Service

All youth are encouraged to find a way to serve others in Jesus name.  This can take place in or outside of our church.  Many youths are involved with Kids ministries, ushering, worship teams, visual operators and our churches annual VBS.
