ME - Teen Bible Study Series
Every aspect of a teen's life is growing and changing; their bodies, their minds, and their faith. But helping a teen really grow spiritually and understand how to live into the life that God desires for them can be a challenge. This Bible Study, ME: The Me I Want To Be, will help teens discover what it can look like when they're fully alive. They'll see that God has a perfect vision for their lives, and that they can live their best life.  We will meet every other Sunday through the months of February, March, and the beginning of April.  Take a look at the schedule for dates and locations.
 
Midland Serving Opportunity
We will meet every Thursday evening at Midland School in Branchburg, NJ through the months of February and early March to assist with adults with special needs as they prepare for a community production.  Our students will serve as guides and buddies as they show God's love through this special service.  Students can either meet at the church at 6:15pm to carpool with Vicar Danny and Pastor Ryan, or they can meet at Midland School in Branchburg at 6:45pm. This opportunity also counts toward school volunteer hours.
 
Youth Service
Every year, close to the last week of school, the youth put together and host a Youth Service.  We lead the congregation in worship through creative elements, youth-led music, skits, dramatic readings, and art/decor.  Each year, we draw more than 25-30 youth helping in big and small ways to produce these powerful and inspiring worship services.  If you think your student Grade 5 - 12 is interested, please contact Pastor Ryan at ryan@stpaulnj.com
