substance youth prepares and releases students to the next step to their faith journey
Join us for either the 9am or 11am Sunday Service online at substancechurch.churchonline.org. After the service check out one of our Micro-Campus experiences or Growth Track. Growth Track is just our process for telling you about Substance Church. More more information on what Growth Track.
Every Monday We’ll be posting on Facebook and Instagram a New 7-Day Bible Study. The Bible study is laid out using the acronym S.O.A.P.
S - Scripture: Each day there will be a different chapter from the Bible. Spend some time reading the scripture and writing out some key verses.
O - Observation: Having read the Scripture, take 5-10 minutes to write down the things that you found interesting. Also write down a quick recap of what the chapter was about, who was talking to who, and list the different characters who played a part in the story.
A - Application: After reading the Scripture and writing down your Observations, take time to see what from the scripture reading could be applied to your life. Was there a discipline that was highlighted in the chapter that you could apply to your life. Maybe the chapter was about peace so you write down a few things that will help you rely on God for peace.
P - Prayer: Prayer is such an important part of this process. Prayer is where we dialogue with God about what we read, observe, and the things we want to apply to our lives. Reading the Bible this way alone is great, but is even better when you have people to go through it with.
Every Tuesday our Youth Pastor, Parice Bayer, will be posting a short devotional. This devotional is designed to help students understand and engage with christian disciplines like, Bible reading, Prayer, Fasting, Etc.
We have Youth Connect Groups that meet every Wednesday via Zoom. Zoom is a free platform that allows students and leader to meet on a group video call. To Join a Youth Connect Group click the ‘New Student’ button at the top of the page.
Youth Connect Groups are based around the message from the previous Sunday Service. Each Connect Group may have a different meeting flow but each group will talk about these things.
- How students are coping with all that's happening with Covid-19.
- Discuss the previous weeks Sunday Message and the S.O.A.P. Bible reading plan for that week.
- Talk about ways they can invite their friends to join their Zoom Calls, how they can serve their families and friends in this time, and what verses they can memorize.
Students in the Connect Groups will also be encouraged to participate in Inviting their friends to join their Groups, Serving, and Memorizing Bible Verses. For each of these areas students can earn points and the Connect Group that earns the most points by the end of the Trimester will win a party.
The points are posted on Instagram and Facebook.
We understand that this is an unprecedented time and we want to help you as parents engage with your family. Thursday we’ll highlight a different insight or resource through Instagram, Facebook, and email. If you are not receiving emails see the bottom of this page to make sure that you are kept updated with Substance Youth.
We believe that we have some of the best Youth Leaders around! Friday we’ll be posting a podcast style interview of some of our Leaders. We’ll be asking questions around how they became Christians, why they are Youth Leaders, and some things they want every student who comes to Substance Youth to know.
