Discipleship Groups

Disciple Groups are short-term, small groups where teens explore different topics and issues related to their Christian faith! These groups may meet at various times and places but require a short-term commitment. Within the small group teens and mentors build relationships that aid them in exploring the faith. Check out our list of Offerings here!

The Before Party

The Before Party is a loosely-structured time for teens to come, relax after school, briefly pray together, and share a meal before youth group starts. Teens can drop-in to the youth center anytime between 2:30-4:30pm to work on homework, talk with friends, play games, etc. At 4:30pm we will gather quickly for prayer and then share a meal together. All attendees must arrive by 4:30pm (or just come at 7:00pm for youth group!).

Youth Alpha 

Like regular Alpha but structured for teens. Each session includes a meal, video & discussion. 

Young Adults: 18 +


After Hours Young Adult Ministry

 

Young Adult Connect Group

Connect Groups are permanent groups of 40-60 people who commit to walking the journey of discipleship together on a forever-basis. Alpha Groups and Discipleship Groups are great at fostering community but their time-limited and topic-driven nature prevents the kind of life-long spiritual friendships that are vital to growing as a joyful missionary disciple. Connect Groups meet once or twice a month in members’ homes and include a simple potluck meal, the sharing of a testimony, and prayer. Group members take responsibility for holding members accountable for their growth in discipleship and hold each other in prayer constantly. Right now we have a special Connect Group for young adults. To learn more, contact Chris Leach at cleach@sjncanton.org
