Timberwood is home to a large youth group, grades 6 through 12, who gather and worship together every week, and that number continues to grow. Our youth program is full of life, offering worship, fellowship, retreats, student leader success, and so much more. Youth group is lead by our adult youth volunteer leaders (parents and community members) who strive to foster the growth of every student’s faith in our youth program.
Students in grades 9th-12th are invited to participate in District
Blitz, a discipleship retreat for youth in MN. This retreat is held in Duluth on April 19-21st. This weekend is designed for youth to
engage in speakers, small breakout sessions, and worship.
Register online at timberwoodchurch.org starting February 25th for an early bird cost of $160 through
March 10th. The cost will increase to $170 through April 7th. This cost will
cover hotel stay, workshop fees, transportation, and food. Space is limited.
The format of a Wednesday night from week to week is very similar, most times starting with snack and fellowship in our great hall where students have a chance to greet each other and catch up. Then the night begins with group play in our gymnasium - swamp ball, tag, and dodgeball still being some of the favorites!
After active time is done, we gather to hear God's word - this is lead by our Family Ministry Director, a guest speaker, or by youth leaders. The final 30 minutes of every night is spent in small discussion groups divided according to grade level. Each grade has a quiet space to discuss questions about the Bible passage presented and allow each student to open up with their peers and experience God together.
Our active youth program doesn't just stay within the walls of Timberwood. Twice a year, Fall and Spring, we offer youth retreats to a local camp where we spend the weekend in God's word, singing and dancing together, and of course, lots of awesome camp activities. The camp experience pairs fun and the goodness of God in the best way creating lasting learning for our youth.
Stay tuned for upcoming retreat opportunities!
