CONNECT IS THE HIGH SCHOOL GROUP AT MARANATHA CHAPEL.
Our Goal at CONNECT is to help High School students cultivate a relationship with God through Jesus Christ that lasts long after graduation day.
We attempt to reach that goal through four things.
1) CONNECTING students with a right PERSPECTIVE of God, Themselves, & the World around them.
We have a strong emphasis on Bible Teaching in our gatherings.
We constantly go back to the simplicity of the Gospel as the means for Salvation & Sanctification.
We celebrate the Grace of God.
We emphasize the difference in value of things that are Temporal vs. Eternal
We equip our students through Apologetics Lessons.
We take the time to have Topical Discussions about the issues a student faces today.
We teach Basic Theology.
2) CONNECTING students with the MISSION of God for the World they live in.
We Gather (for worship, encouragement & equipping), in order to effectively Scatter (to influence and effect the world we live in).
We teach students to see their life (their day) as a part of Gods Plan & Work of Redemption.
Being an Ambassador for Christ.
Seeking First the Kingdom of God.
Living with Singleness of Mind.
Practicing Relational Evangelism.
Involvement in Campus Ministries (FCA, Christian Clubs, CRU, etc).
Opportunity for involvement within Church Ministries (Childrens, Jr High, etc).
Domestic Missions Opportunities.
Foreign Missions (for students to LEARN, PRAY, GIVE, & GO)
3) CONNECTING students with a COMMUNITY of their peers to experience Life & God together with.
We Worship together.
We Pray together.
We Encourage each other.
Peer to Peer Friendships are built.
This is a Safe Place.
This is a Fun Place.
This is an Accepting Place.
Although this will never be a Perfect Place, our group is a Wonderful Place for students.
4) CONNECTING students with a DISCIPLESHIP Relationship to Encourage and Support them.
We have Adult Volunteers & Staff available to Disciple and Mentor students.
We also have additional Men & Women from within the church Mentoring students.
Our goal is for a student to have Encouragement & Support outside of our youth group gatherings.
