“The Reach” at Spirit and Word Fellowship is a place of belonging. Whether you are coming for your first time, or for your 100th time, we want you to feel welcomed into community! The Reach meets every Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:00 in the fellowship hall. It is a place where everyone has a voice. It is also a place where everyone can be seen. We are a safe environment where our students, grades 6-12, are given a space to grow and be open.
Pastor Tyler and Katelyn serve as a ministry team, creating intentional messages with open discussion at the forefront of each message. Youth group usually begins with a game, then sharing about the highs and lows of the week before going into worship and a lesson. Each lesson is interactive, not just that the message would be heard, but also understood.
The Reach is all about reaching out to the youth in our community and helping them understand the value they have in the Kingdom. We believe the heart of God is to empower young people to carry the gospel. The mission of our leadership is to help them understand and receive that empowerment. With themes like: “The Father Heart of God” and “Identity in Christ” mixed into every message, we want to see each person activated for a life of ministry in whatever realm of the world and workforce they eventually go into.
Our team of leaders believe that time as a group is vital to learning and understanding, but social time before service gives them an opportunity to connect with each student individually. We know that every walk of life is individually unique and love to speak into each life from a personal and biblical standpoint. We are a judgement-free zone and we know that individual connection brings breakthrough!
Join us each week for an opportunity to learn more about the gospel of Jesus Christ and how the Word of God is not just relevant in today’s teenage world but absolutely necessary in order to live a productive, joyful, successful Christian life.
