At Rush Church, we believe that teens are not the future of the church--they are a big part of God's plan for the present of the church. We are committed to developing Christ followers early in their Christian walk "that they may not stray from it."
Worship and Fellowship
Our youth group meets bi-monthly to discuss topics important to teens and what the Bible can teach us about those topics. There is a time for games/activities, service and mission planning, and conversations to help build meaningful relationships with each other. We enjoy events outside of our regular youth group meetings such as campfires, drive-in movies, costume parties and field trips. . We also seek to integrate our youth in our regular Sunday morning worship services. Being a part of the church at large is an important part of a young faith journey.
We believe it is important for the youth of the church to be involved in helping the church do its ministry and in helping its members through life. Teens are encouraged to do this regularly through Super Sale, Turkey Dinner, VBS and more. The youth also sponsor the Annual Trunk or Treat for children in our community. It is vital for youth to be involved in the life of the church.
Missions are different from service because the focus is to make the name of Jesus known through our actions. The youth have traveled on weeklong mission trips to other cities where we offered practical help but also practice giving our testimonies and sharing the basic truths of the gospel with people outside of the Church. We have also participated in Flower City Work Camp which is a mission to bring the love of Jesus to inner city children.
