The Vine Student Ministry
The Vine Student Ministry serves youth in grades 7 through 12. Our ministry verse is John 15:5. We focus on telling youth about Jesus Christ and discipling them so they can grow in their relationship with God and produce fruit. We have three main event types: discipleship, service (give back), and fellowship.
The youth meet two times every week: Sundays for Sunday School at 9:45 am and Wednesdays at 6:30 pm for bible study. The youth also hold a weekend fall retreat in October every year. The 2020 Fall Retreat theme was EVERLASTING and focused on John 3:16.
The youth try to give back to our church and/or the community at least once a month. Previous service activities include: volunteering at the Brazos Church Pantry, helping with Vacation Bible School and Sports Camp, cleaning up the church grounds and buildings, and supporting state, north American, and international missions.
The youth try to hold at least two social activities a month. Previous social events include: movie nights, swim parties, altitude trampoline park, society of sweets (SOS), carving pumpkins, slumber party, camping, and ice skating.
2020 Youth Camp Recap
Seventeen youth and six adults attended Tune Up Camp at Messiah's Ranch in Bryan, Texas on June 13-17, 2020. This camp was organized by The Vine Student Ministry and staffed by church volunteers. The camp included two Bible study tracks, worship, guest speakers (including two of the youth leading bible studies), a service project (we cleared brush around our cabin/meeting area), lots of fun in the lake and pool, and great food. But most importantly, God met each student and adult at camp and changed our lives! We were desperate for Him and fellowship with others, and He blessed us with both. We had one profession of faith, one rededication, and many students realized their walk with Christ had strayed due to their lack of prioritizing Him in their life. We cannot wait to see what God has planned for our youth next. He continually amazes us. We thank you for your support, especially the prayer. God answered so many prayers in ways that were more than we could have ever imagined. God is good and nothing is impossible for Him! Please continue to pray for our youth and leaders.
