YOUTH MINISTRY

The Youth Ministry of Arnold Community Church exists to teach and equip youth to know, follow, and share Jesus with others.

Arnold Youth is open to and welcomes all students in grades 7-12! Whether a student has grown up in this church family or is considering trying out a Youth Group, we want to journey alongside them and point them to the person and work of Jesus. We offer a wide variety of games and activities, large scale events, and Biblical lessons planned by a dedicated and safe volunteer leadership team and Youth Pastor. Arnold Youth prioritizes teaching and building deeper relationships and offers plenty of opportunities for youth to learn and spend time together. We’d love to have you join us; check out the info below to see just some of the many things we do here!

For students currently in Grade 6 we offer our Middle Ground program on Thursday nights. For more info, click HERE.

Our yearly Retreat is open to all in grades 7-12 and we also try to attend conferences throughout the year. We put on an intensive Bible study retreat in the summer and we keep retreat costs as low as possible. We offer financial support to anyone who needs, so please don’t miss out because of money.

BIBLE STUDY

Thursday nights all year – 6:30-9:00pm. Open to Grades 9-12 & Young Adults. Studying the Bible verse by verse as a community leads to many discussions and debates. Attendees are taught to properly interpret the text and are expected to participate. If you want to learn to study & understand the Bible this is for you.

RELATIONSHIP NIGHTS

Throughout the year we offer a few of these focused discussion nights (on a Monday from 7–9pm). These nights are geared for high schoolers and young adults as sensitive/mature topics are discussed. The goal is to create/facilitate honest conversations and answer questions on topics that are difficult but relevant.
