of our children. That is why Christ Temple Church takes special
care to foster their spiritual growth and well-being in an
atmosphere that is interesting, dynamic, fun and real. The purpose is to promote devotion, instruction, fellowship, biblical training and education for the youth of the church. The major emphasis placed on Bible study and prayer and the preparation for effective Christian work.

Christ Temple's Youth Ministry (grades 7-12) is developed to build up the body of Christ. That is, to deepen a Christian youth's walk with Christ and to reach other youth who are searching for answers and for a group to which to belong.
Some of the programs and activities are:
SUNDAY SCHOOL provides youth with systematic Bible study. Both the Middle School Department (grades 7-8) and the High School Department (grades 9-12) include classes for boys and girls. Trained, qualified and dedicated adults who are committed to Youth Ministry teach the young people.
MISSIONS involves youth through Acteens (mission education/action groups of girls), Pioneer Royal Ambassadors (mission education/action for boys), and a Mission Action group (ministry of meeting needs of those in our community including everything from leaf raking for the elderly to Christmas caroling and ministering to the homeless).
YOUTH GROUP TIME is a Friday night get-together of grades 7-12 for Bible Study, topic discussions, Christian videos, etc.
HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH GROUP meets weekly for a time of fellowship, singing, sharing, and study.

truly I am full of power by the spirit of the Lord..."
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the
believers, in the word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit,
in faith, in purity. Neglect not the gift that is in thee,
which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of hands
of the presbytery.
I Timothy 4:12 & 14
