Welcome to ABC Youth group! We are a collection of 6th to 12th graders that are looking for ways to serve the Lord in our church and community. When asked what this youth group is about, three words come to mind: Fellowship, Scripture, Mission. We at Amherst will continue to teach and grow in our faith through Bible study and prayer so that we will share Jesus’ Love. We will be dedicated to encourage and reach the needs of everyone as the Holy Spirit leads us to serve God.
Fellowship is something we in the ABC youth group have fun with. Whether it is a party in the youth room, talking before and after Bible Studies, or going somewhere for food and a good hang out, this is the best way for us to get to know each other and really start to learn what each other is going through.
As Christians, we believe that the Bible is directly revealed to us from God, and the scripture we find is God breathed and we need to learn from that. We have Bible studies Sunday mornings at 10 AM, and Wednesday at 6:30 PM. In these we look at different topics and passages and see what God is trying to reveal and challenge us with that week. God reveals to us through his Word how we as Christaisn are supposed to handle all sorts of situations, and we are not teaching from his Word then what is the point in teaching at all.
Finally Mission! One of our “theme verses” if you will in this youth group is Matthew 28: 16-20. This is known as the Great commision where Jesus himselfs challenges his disciples to go and make more disciples. As Christians we are all disciples and should be looking to spread his word as we are challenged in the verses aforementioned.
All in all this youth group is being challenged day in and day out to become more like Christ and become a Great Commision focused group. If this interests you, we would love to have you join us either Sunday morning or Wednesday Night and meet you as we continue to try and take God’s word to each other, Burke County, and all the world!
