Parkwood Youth is designed to capture the interests of both ‘churched‘ and ‘non-churched’ youth. We incorporate evangelism, teaching, worship, relational/social formation and a community atmosphere. We value the diversity and struggles of young adolescence, and seek to encourage & love teens where they’re at as they navigate that road. With this in mind, each Boost & Elevate ‘large group’ night has a blend of music, drama/art, smaller group interaction, mixers/games, interactive teaching, chill time, and the occasional surprise! This is generally the best venue for a first-time guest, however we also understand some prefer the smaller group venues, as opposed to the larger ones.
For detailed info on Boost Jr. High and Elevate High School ministries, just click the logos on the Youth Home page.
Our smaller groups are groups of 4-10 students, organized by grade and gender, led by at least one trusted and safe adult (Boost groups also have teens gr. 10+ as assistants). They offer students a place of discipleship, friendship, accountability, interactive learning, and deeper community. Our Life Group leaders facilitate discussion and prayer times following our large group teaching, as well as work to coordinate occasional group community service projects and organize fun, social outings!
