who are you

We here at the STYG really want to make sure you stay informed.

Well, we’re pretty passionate about helping you connect with God.  We believe that this happens is many MANY ways!  We have lots of things we do together in community like D-Groups (Wednesday nights), Youth Group events (Sundays), Film School (Sunday mornings), Love Journeys (Mexico House Building, Disaster Relief Projects, Urban Assistance) and other Stuff You Can Sign Up For as well (roller coasters, music concerts, canoe trips, etc).  We really believe that the things we do together (no matter what they are) are ways for us to practice what it means to live out a hopeful, helpful, peaceful, loving, “Jesusy” and Spirit-filled faith.  In other words, we want to follow Jesus in every aspect of our lives, not just on Sundays or Wednesdays or that random Friday afternoon. We want to make THIS life matter, here and now, and not just wait around for the next one to happen after we die (but rest assured, we’re looking forward to THAT life too!).


Maybe we can say it like this . . . we believe that Jesus demonstrated the fact that God is up to something in the world, something BIG!  And the Spirit of God compels us to figure out what God is doing and jump on board.  Are you into art, music, history, science, medicine, languages, theology, social justice, human interest, politics, etc?  ALL those things (yes, all of them) are ways each of us can use our vocation to bring hope, love, beauty, justice, truth, and reconciliation to the world around us.  And so, as a youth group, the STYG seeks to gather together in a community in order to practice a Way of Life so that it can be lived for the benefit of those around us and thereby partner with God’s ongoing restorative mission for the world.  In short, by following the teachings of Jesus, and being empowered by God’s Spirit, we want heaven to crash into earth.


So, help us help you to take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way!  We’re not so arrogant to think that we’ve got the best things going or that you have to be involved in what we’re doing to make your life in the Way of Jesus.  But we’d sure love to help you do that, either here or somewhere else.  Regardless, you’re invited to participate in everything we’re doing.
