Unleashed Youth Ministry
Unleashed from the world, ready to serve others in the name of Christ!
The Genesis Youth gather on Sunday evenings during the school year for “Unleashed”. Every Sunday evening is something different but always God-centered. Unleashed begins at 5:00 pm with a meal where Youth can enjoy fellowship together. We then meet from 5:30-6:30 pm to worship through our service to others, small groups, fellowship, and fun.
We incorporate mission opportunities each month into our Unleashed evenings. We have participated in Stop Hunger Now, made bag lunches for Raleigh Rescue mission, made goodie bags for the USO, partied with our local nursing home and retirement communities, and purchased food for the Dorcas food pantry. This are just a few of the ways we encourage our youth to spend time giving back to our community.
Small Group Sharing
We also spend time discussing topics that are on the minds of our youth. We use the Bible as a lens as we process such topics as how to deal with peer pressure, how to love ourselves as God loves us, unity in the church and beyond, and how to put others before ourselves.
Sunday nights always incorporate time for fellowship through our sharing a meal together. We have many events throughout the year to just enjoy being together and having fun. We have several meals with our Primetimer group and spend time with them playing games. We have an annual lock in at Triangle Rock Club as well as retreats for both High school and Middle school youth. We have had dances, Zumba, basketball, scavenger hunts – loads of fun times to really get to know one another! Join us at Unleashed…it is an environment of support and friendship and God’s Love.
Sunday Morning Bible Classes
There are classes for Middle School and High School Youth at 10:10 am each Sunday. The Middle School class studies the Bible through movies. The High School group studies books of the Bible and current topics.
In January of each year we offer a semester long Confirmation class for our students in grades 8 and up. This class studies what it means to accept Christ as their personal savior, about the history and principles of the Methodist church, and how students can grow as Christ’s disciples. We celebrate Confirmation Sunday in May of each year as part of our Sunday worship service, renewing our own covenants of faith as these students make their public profession.
