YOSE [yo-zee] stands for "Youth On Sunday Evening." We eat together and then practice a rotation of "Game Nights," meant for practicing playfulness; "Worship Nights" planned and led by students; and "Mission Nights," which are usually spent off-campus with local partners. On Mission Nights, we depart right at 5:00 and take a sack supper to-go.
Sundays, 5-7 PM | Student Building | Vocal Ensemble & Worship Planning, 4 PM on alternating weeks
wednesday night retreat
Our mid-week program is designed to help youth take a deep breath and rest in God. We retreat from our hectic schedules, the day-in and day-out pressures of the school year, and the striving that marks and consumes our lives.
Wednesday Night Retreat is where we experiment with various prayers and prayer styles, practice silence, recharge for the rest of the week, and call the hurried lifestyle into question.
This year, we’ll focus on the question, “How can I hear God’s voice?” We will practice “holy listening” with scripture and offer a Bible reading plan for daily and weekly readings.
Wednesdays, 6-7 PM | Student Building Room 130D | Fellowship Supper served, 4:30-6
The Student Building is open from 4-8 PM on the first, third, and fifth Mondays of each month (unless there’s a holiday or special circumstance). Youth do homework, play in the gym, spend time outside, hang out in the lounge, and bring $10 for dinner. During the summer months, the time frame is pushed back to 5-9 PM.
