Ventures (Youth Venture for Christ)
A group of senior high aged youth, (grades 9 – 12), who serve Christ by bringing ministry to a Community of Christ congregation and the surrounding community one weekend a month from December to April. For short, we call these weekend gatherings “huddles.” Ventures is truly a place to meet and make lifelong friends while learning about the love of Jesus Christ and becoming a leader in Community of Christ!
North Star is a youth group for those in grades 8-12 in the Michigan Mission Center. The purpose of the group is to train youth in ways to become a Missional Church through education, service, fellowship and worship in ways that involve youth, interacting with others of all ages in ways that make the ministry and mission of Jesus Christ real for everyone.
Youth involved in North Star will find opportunities to learn about the Mission of Jesus and how they can be a part of living out that mission today in a way that makes a real difference in their lives and in the lives of those around them. There will be opportunities to have fun together, serve others together, worship together and learn together as each one responds to the call to share the Good News with others.
If you are in grades 8-12, please join us. Please follow us on our Facebook Group “North Star.”
