Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers … I Timothy 4:22
Lakeside has endless activities involving teenagers. In addition to many get togethers and seasonal activities, see below for some of the opportunities for fellowship, ministry and worship.
Each summer our youth takes a week to just get away and experience a time of renewing their walk with the Lord. Daily Bible teaching, short impacting discussions on life issues from the biblical view, and close friendship with other Christians make this week something special. Throw in some fun sports, competitions, and plenty of water, our teens really have one terrific time.
To the world and to every tongue we will go as our Savior leads (even if we cannot speak the language). Our focus is to share Christ with a lost world. We can only tell what we know to be true and that is that God loves us and wants us to come to Him by the only door which is Jesus the Christ. Our youth enjoyed mission trips to New York City and San Salvador, Bahamas, Niagara Falls, New York, and we look forward to our trip to Maine the summer of 2018.
Sunday Morning Bible Study
Yes, the Bible does speak to teenagers on issues that are important to young people. God wants to share His heart and wisdom through His love letter, the Bible. He wrote it just for us because He wants to give us the best life imaginable.
Wednesday Evening Youth Service
Teenagers can worship as well as anyone. God loves the praise of His people. You do not have to waite for adulthood to sing, hear God’s word and apply it, pray like the great saints of old, nor wait to offer what you have to the Lord. We live with the charge from God to, “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” We are prepared to live for Christ now, not later.
