Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry at the Auburn SDA Church offers a safe environment to grow and connect with peers and their church, along with an engaging Bible study and developing leadership talents. But most importantly, our deepest desire is for each of our youth to have an encounter with their personal Savior. A relationship with God and a heart of love is central in importance and we hope that as each child matures, their faith matures and their faith becomes their own.
Youth Sabbath School :
Each Saturday at 10:00 am we get together as a youth group. We start with a quick breakfast provided by various church members and youth parents, which allows for some causal time for youth to connect with each other and catch up. To start off bible study we have a check-in question where youth introduce themselves to the group which is helpful if we have any guests who are not acquainted with the group and it gives everyone an opportunity to have a voice. Bible study is led in a discussion format where we seek to understand the purpose and role of our study text for the week. 
Youth Group:
The first Youth Night will be February 26, from 4:00 – 6:00 pm at the youth chapel! We have put together a team of youth to lead and organize these get together. We share a bible study, snacks, and activity together. The purpose of youth night is to provide a mid-week opportunity to connect with each other, with God, and to develop leadership skills. Future dates will be March 4th and March 18th.
