Youth Ministry

Learn. Grow. Connect.


“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.”

Weekly Youth Events

Youth Sabbath School
Each Saturday at 9:30am in the Youth Room across from the Sanctuary 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 casual time for youth to connect with each other and catch up. Before we begin our Bible study, we have a check-in question where everyone has an opportunity to share and connect with others. It’s also helpful when we have any guests that day and that they feel welcomed and better acquainted with the group. Bible study is led in a discussion format where we seek to understand the purpose and role of our study text for the week and how we can apply and live it in our daily lives.
