Our youth group, called Youth ABLAZE, exists to honor and glorify God as well as to fulfill the great commission. Each activity, message, and youth service stems from the principle of helping our teens grow in Christ. Some of the highlights of Youth ABLAZE include awesome monthly activities, weekly Youth Group meetings, soul-winning opportunities, mission trips, and many special events and trips. Visit our website at www.youthablaze.us to find out all of the necessary information regarding our youth group and activities.
We all know one thing about fires, in order to keep them burning, they must be stirred and stoked. This same principle can be applied to our Christian walk as well. On Wednesday evenings, Youth ABLAZE has special meetings for teens 7th-12th grade called Ignite. Ignite provides a special opportunity for teens that want to get serious about their Christian walk. Every month we have a brand new series that deals with topics that many of us face on a day-to-day basis. The doors open every Wednesday evening at 6:45 and the service starts at 7:15. Separate from Ignite, Youth ABLAZE meets on Sunday mornings at 9:45 for Sunday school. Ignite provides for a meaningful worship experience and an opportunity to learn and grow in the Bible.
S.A.L.T. (Student Advanced Leadership Training) is a program designed to encourage and equip those that have both surrendered their life to full-time Christian service and dedicated their life to Christ. S.A.L.T. is for all teens 9-12th grade who have dedicated their life to Christ and are serious about following God’s will for their life. S.A.L.T. meets the second Wednesday of each month, September-May
Teen Community Outreach
“Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”- Mark 16:15. The Bible clearly commands us to present the Gospel to our friends, neighbors, and community. Each week we have the opportunity to reach our community by handing out invitations for Youth ABLAZE and church activities. Teen Community Outreach also gives us the opportunity to visit other teens that may be interested in being a part of Youth ABLAZE.
Mentoring Teens A-Z
We are driven to see our teens succeed in Christ. In order to help all teens from all different backgrounds, we offer a discipleship bible study program that involves a one to one relationship with a Youth ABLAZE leader and teen. The Mentoring Teens program generally meets for at least one hour a week, depending on the schedules of those involved in the study. The program last for 26 weeks but the knowledge and insight gained lasts forever.
Teen Talk Ministries
Teen Talk Ministries is a branch of Youth ABLAZE that exists to help teenagers come to know Jesus and be a better follower of Him. We seek to help teens get over struggles such as bullying and cyber bullying, abuse, pornography, alcohol, unhealthy relationships, and many more. We provide helpful information from men and women that have all struggled with serious issues when they were teenagers. In order to connect with the community, Teen Talk Ministries holds community events such as dodgeball tournaments, flag football challenges, basketball games, and more. To find out more about the Teen Talk Ministry and see the next upcoming event, please visit our website at www.teentalkministries.com.
College life can be full of classes, societies, friends, dorm life, making memories, fine arts, and hanging out! This great time of life includes career pursuits, new jobs, and greater independence. The college and career years can be lots of fun, but they can also be confusing. Single adults face challenges in life just like everyone else. Singles from all over southeastern Pennsylvania have discovered friendships, help, and community at Valley Forge Baptist. We hope that you will plan to join us for an activity or one of our church services.
Your story is actually part of God’s story and you are writing yours one day at a time. Is God included in your story? He wants to be. He created you with purpose and has a wonderful plan for your life. Imagine as an actor that you walk onto the stage—the props are in place, the lighting is set, and the costumes are prepared. Everything is ready and the curtains are about to open, but since you haven’t seen the script, you don’t know where the play is going. Life can be this way if you haven’t read the script (The Bible). Our singles study the script; we call it The Scriptures. They have the ability to change one’s life!
We invite you to come, meet new friends, and join us in seeking truth from God’s Word. Our church family provides an awesome atmosphere for single adults to see God working in the lives of people of all ages. It doesn’t get much better than this! We meet on regularly on Sunday at 9:00AM and Wednesday at 7:00PM.
