We know from the passage at the end of Matthew 28 that service and sharing the Good News with others is essential to living out God’s plan for our lives. Youth have a variety of opportunities to serve others throughout the year, whether it’s as a volunteer in a ministry area of the church, through Upward Sports ministry, at the Good Samaritan food bank, or with one of our national or international missions teams. We are always looking for more ways to make Him known and share His love with the world!
Praiseworks is a worship arts camp held each summer at Ouachita Baptist University which was created to help train youth in a variety of ways related to the arts in worship. From sound and lighting, to dance and guitar, youth who attend Praiseworks are taught to use their imaginations and skills to both worship and help lead others in worship to God. Check out the Arkansas Baptist State Convention website for more info!
May of each year presents our church family with a difficult yet cherished time where we celebrate and send off our graduating class of Seniors. Each year we invite senior youth and their families to attend a banquet in their honor. We also celebrate them in our worship service on a Sunday morning together with the whole church.
We love to support our local schools and the youth who participate in them. Every football season, we host tailgate parties and 5th Quarters to share our support with the community. Anyone is welcome to participate! We serve food, play tailgating games, listen to music, and give away door prizes. It’s a fun way to get out and love on our community.
