B. U. R. S. T. (Youth Group)
B.U.R.S.T. is the name of our youth group for grades 7 – 12. They meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30p.m. – 8:00p.m. at the church’s Youth Center. B.U.R.S.T. consists of: Fellowship (often a small meal or snacks is provided), Bible Study, Song-time, and Prayer time. Bible Study topics are geared for young people and issues that are relevant to youth. The leaders are Pastor Duane & Cristina Smith, and they bring with them over eighteen years’ experience as youth leaders. This year, Jacqueline Welch joins them as a college leader and helps each week! B.U.R.S.T. meets on Wednesdays in conjunction with the school calendar year. The name B.U.R.S.T. is an acronym for:
NEW video series, "I AM N" - based on true-life stories of Iraq followers of Jesus Christ. "I Am N" reminds us that we are each “N”—as radical Muslims in Iraq identify followers of Jesus the Nazarene. Wherever we live, we have camaraderie with those who are persecuted. So come meet their families. Listen to their stories. Deepen your faith in a God who gives us the courage to shine in a dark and hurting world.
