The Way Youth
What is "The Way?"
The Way was a name attached to the early followers of Jesus. And it is the name attached to the youth ministry at Northwest Hills United Methodist Church. That name has become the name of our ministry because we want to be known as followers of Jesus; followers of His Way.
What is Jesus’ way? “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” – Matthew 22:37-39
Jesus told us we must also, “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” – John 14:34-35
It also means putting Jesus first in our lives. “Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” – Luke 9:23.
We follow Jesus’ way because He is the Way. “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
With the entire group striving to follow Jesus and love one another, when you're here, you should feel safe to be yourself. All the posturing and posing that takes place at school is left at the door. You are in a safe place to uncover your inner self no matter who that may be.
We have fun. We enjoy each other's company. We share our joys and our burdens with one another. And we seek a closer relationship with Jesus Christ, who is the overriding reason for us meeting together in the first place.
Check out the calendar for the events we have coming up including winter retreats, summer camp and summer mission trips.
