Youth

The AFCNAZYTH is for any 6th through 12th grade student.

Wednesday nights with doors opening at 5:30 PM, worship starts at 6:45 PM, and the night ends at 8:00 PM. 

We believe that worship should be fun, engaging, and relational. We believe that worship is the posture of our hearts to live out our relationship with God and seek to worship God in every area of our lives. Each time we gather play games, worship together, interact with God’s Word, and dive deep in small groups.

We are excited to see how students are growing in their relationship with God, each other, and their community. We believe that there is no Junior Jesus and that students are the church of right now. We invite you to come hang out with us, grow together, and reach our community!

This is a baptism class geared for students 6th grade through 12th grade.  Students will learn about baptism and why it is important.  By the end of the class, with parent/ guardian consultation, the student can become a candidate for baptism.

We are taking a tubing trip to Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg, Indiana!  A liability waiver is required – you find in the resource tab of this page.  You read the time correctly – we are tubing under the big lights. 

We think Valentine’s Day is overrated!  Galentine’s is an event specially crafted for the young ladies.  There will be a variety of activities and refreshments and a devotional regarding just how much God values women.

Society tells our young men what they should and shouldn’t be all the time, but what is a real man?  Designed specifically for teenage boys, ‘RealMen” will explore what scripture says and how we should treat women.  Of course, manly activities and smoked meats will be there!

Winter Jam is Christian music’s largest concert series and is returning to Gainbridge Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis.  Students will love the time of worship and entertainment as we hang out and see some of CCM’s best take the stage – bring some money for food and merch!

During our regular midweek programming on February 15th, we will pause to serve the church through the assembly of crisis care kits – a resource utilized for natural disasters around the globe.  We will also welcome guest missionary speakers to share their experiences on the field.

Ash Wednesday is an important date on the Christian calendar that we don’t talk about enough. Students will learn what it is and why it is important to their faith walk as Easter approaches.

Celebrate Life is a staple during the spring semester!  Click on the information packet in the resources area for a more in-depth description.  Contact Pastor Joey w/ questions.

This is our unique way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!  After the message, in lieu of small groups, we will be participating in a series of competitive games.  Sweet prizes await!

Celebrate Life @ Olivet is pt. 2 of the CL experience.  Students are invited to worship and compete with Nazarene students from around the midwest in this action-packed three day event.

This will conclude the school year and midweek gatherings until the Fall.  It’s gonna be sweet – a block party with several different activities.  We are going to kick-off summer in style.

Activate is an outing exclusively for students promoting into the 6th grade in Fall 2023.  It is an opportunity to get to know the youth pastor and his wife while enjoying a fun activity and dinner.

Graduate + Promotion Sunday is an opportunity to recognize our seniors and welcome our incoming class.  It will feature an on-the-go cupcake social between services.
