Youth Ministry

Gemeinschaft Vision

We want to be a church-community by doing life together in Christ (Acts 2:42-47); by encountering concrete persons and sharing in one another’s experiences (Eph. 4:25); and by using our diverse gifts in order to edify his body.

Our Mission

Here at Calvary Youth Group we are a family, and our goal is to create a gospel-centered culture through discipleship.

It is where we know we belong, where we are free to serve others, where we are free to be served by others, and where all immediately feel the presence of Jesus Christ.

Youth Group Meetings

We meet on Fridays from 7:30-9:30pm, and every night we’re doing something different.

Structure:

  • Inward Night: Growing in our knowledge of God through the word
  • Upward Night: Worshipping God in conventional and in unconventional ways
  • Outward Night: Living as Christ’s hands and feet to serve our New Haven community, and enjoying each other’s presence through the gift of fellowship

Youth Sunday School

Classes take place in Calvary’s Youth Ministry Center, from 9:45am to 11:00am.

In Sunday school - we look at scripture closely, and work through difficult theological and philosophical questions. Classes for this semester:

Junior High - Gospel of Matthew (Chapter 5-10)
Senior High - Introduction to Systematic Theology (Chapter 1-5)

Retreats

Each year, we go on fall, winter or summer retreats. It is a time when students are unplugged from their devices and social media, and focus on being reenergized spiritually, as well as finding solace from the chaos of a busy academic schedule.
