JCC Youth Group
JCC Youth is for students turning 13-18 by 8-1-2020. We have also introduced a new youth group for the 2019-2020 youth season: JCC Jr Youth for students turning 11-12 by 8-1-2020. Both groups are an excellent environment to team up with kids your age, have a little fun and excitement, get a little real in small doses, and learn about Jesus through studying the Bible in real, relevant, and meaningful ways.
We have small groups that meet the first Wednesday of each month, a mentoring night called “Timothy Night” on the third Wednesday of the month, random Sunday morning road trips, monthly fun group activities, annual retreats, service projects, outreach opportunities, leadership development endeavors, and more!

Please contact Sam Shultz, Director of Student Ministries for more information: sjshultz1979@gmail.com.
Otherwise, we’ll see you at one of our next events!
COVID-19 update:
Because of the quarantine in our area, we have begun meeting online as a virtual group! Here are a few ways to stay connected until we’ve gotten through this phase in our country: 
1. Wednesdays: 6:00-7:15pm Virtual Youth Group for Jr Youth and Youth Group kids. Download the Zoom App to your phone, tablet, or computer. Sign up for free and “join meeting” with the Meeting ID: 909-003-0439. You can also join by clicking HERE
2. Sundays: 10:00am Morning Worship Facebook Live Watch Party! (Specific details coming soon!) We’ll watch the Sunday worship service together, chatting in the message section together, processing the core of the message as it’s delivered live! This will be separate from the regular Facebook Live feed our church puts out. 
3. Mondays: eStudy. Take up the challenge to study with us during the week, be a witness to your peers on social media, and reflect on the theme of the week via YouTube clip, Tik Tok video contests, and more! Pastor Sam will post each week’s challenge by 5pm on Monday nights to the Encounter Youth Facebook page and via email. We’ll vote on the best entries and the winner gets a Starbucks gift card!
Stay tuned for more fun activities and opportunities as we work on them!
