Simple Creed: Youth Ministy

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

simple mission, raising new leaders

High school and middle school is a crazy time in a young person’s life. It is during this time that an individual starts making decisions on their own, even about their faith. We believe our student ministry at Forestpark exists to help students understand their need for a relationship with Jesus Christ and help them grow in that relationship. Because of this simplicity, we call this group of teenagers Simple Creed.

come worship with us

Simple Creed is open for students in 6th grade through 12th. The youth meet every Wednesday night at 6:30pm at Forestpark. Usually, the students hang out for the first thirty minutes; this may involve a game, ice-breakers, kickball, just things to get students involved. After this, we offer a time of worship with a message provided by our youth minister, Carson Troutman.
