Wintonbury Youth (WY) is part of a unified, global group of people who proclaim God’s excellence and love others in a redemptive way. Luke 14 has inspired us to believe that God is preparing a great feast for all who would respond to Him in faith and obedience. The Spirit gifts and leads us in this holy endeavor. We are witnesses and worshippers who share the gospel, love the struggling and encourage one another. Our youth group does life together to equip us with a Biblical worldview for life opportunities and challenges.
Assistant Pastor: Ben Greene
Wintonbury Youth School-Year
From September - June, we meet on Sundays from 6 - 8pm at Wintonbury to discover what God says to us through His word and how that impacts our lives.
Discipleship Groups (D-groups)
During d-groups, students and leaders talk about the challenging realities of following Jesus in today's culture. We discuss everyday situations that many teens face such as forming healthy relationships with family and friends, putting God first while juggling school, sports and work, peer pressure, emotional and social strain and more. Our best source of perspective is God’s word, whether understanding historic doctrines, knowing God or pursuing holiness. We seek mentors from older, godly adults who vulnerably share struggles and encourage our growth.
Inspired by Luke 14 (and teenage appetites!), FEAST Nights include a shared meal, games, activities and time to just hang out and build friendships. This is a great night for inviting friends.
Retreats and Fun Events
We also plan or join other churches on retreats, 30-Hour Famine, Christmas celebrations and special worship services.
Wintonbury Youth Summer
During the summer, Wintonbury Youth have the opportunity to participate in a variety of special events and outings. We do things like:
The Hartford Project
Hang Out Nights
Note: All Wintonbury youth volunteers are carefully screened through an application and interview process; they also must agree to and pass a criminal background check before working with our youth.
