“IMPACTing Students Today to IMPACT the World Tomorrow! “

 

We believe that middle schoolers and high schoolers today have a vital role to play within the church. So often, teens get overlooked and underestimated. But the Bible says in 1 Timothy 4 that youth are to be an example so they will not to be looked down on simply because they are young. Our goal is to help teens understand who they are in Christ and that through the gifts, talents, and abilities God has given them, they can greatly IMPACT the world around them. We exist to love students where they are at, present the Gospel in a way they understand, move each student toward a closer relationship to Jesus Christ and the people around them, equip them for current and future ministry and to encourage them to live each day in such a way that people can’t help but see Christ in them.

Partner With Our LBC Youth Summer Camps!

Summer camps are one of the biggest ways that God works in the lives our students! Getting a week away from our normal rhythms to spend focusing on God and his community, gives amazing opportunities for students to grow in their faith. Every year Laurelwood partners with 7 other churches for a high school camp called ETV, and a middle school/primary camp called ETM. These week long camps take a lot of work and we need as much help as we can get! Even if you can’t make it to serve during the week of camp, we can still use your help through prayer, letter writing, financial support and more. If you would like to partner with us for either summer camp, please contact Luke Jech or Sam Halstead. For a current list of needs and ways to partner with our summer camps, please view the youth section of our Laurelwood Website.
