The Purpose of the Youth Ministry at Macedonia is to work with the youth ages 0-20. We teach, plan, and organize the youth activities of the church. Our youth ministry is focused on worshiping God, making new friends and finding ways to serve God by helping others while having fun in the process. Through growth opportunities and service work we strive to raise up future leaders within our church.
Children's church ages 5 - 12yrs old gives our youth an opportunity to learn about the love of God. Thus teaching them biblical and encourages them to pursue God wholeheartedly in their life. Children's Church also helps them navigate their own experiences in their daily lives.
Teen Church is for ages 13 and up. Today teenagers face more and more issues as it relates to social media, emotional health, peer pressure and bullying. We desire to help spiritually train and equip teens in a fun Godly atmosphere to the Glory of God.
Church Nursery Services
Need a break? Look no further than our Church Nursery. We have dedicated staff ready to serve our littlest churchgoers from ages 0-5. We have many toys, books and many children's bible stories. Snacks and drinks are also provided as well.
Youth Sundays are held every 5th Sunday. The children actively take part, leading church services. They enjoy taking an active part in services.
Quarterly Youth Meetings
Youth meetings occur 4 times a year. We encourage ALL MMBC youth to attend. These meeting give updates on activities and programs involving youth throughout the year. We look forward to and encourage input from our youth regarding various activities involving them.
Community Service Projects
We want to teach our youth the importance of giving back. Each year our youth participate in the Post Office Food Drive. We are also looking into other ways of giving back as well.
This gives our youth the ability to invest themselves in the fundraising process further developing emotional connections that can lead to long-term support.
