We’re aware that adolescence is a critical time for the formation of faith. Somehow, it has to become personal. Having Christian friends, having a place where they are welcomed, interacting with adult friends and teachers, celebration, conversation, experiencing God, all these things are key components in the spiritual formation of teenagers and are central to what we do here at Dayspring.
Dayspring is a place that values thinking and questioning. While helping our students to be grounded in scripture and doctrine, we also challenge them to think deeply about their faith and experience the transforming power of Christ’s presence in their lives.
Every other Sunday evening our youth group meets from 5:00-7:00 We work to create a welcoming environment in which teens are invited to share their lives with each other and grow in their understanding of what it means to be followers of Jesus. These times begin with dinner and typically include games and the study of scripture.
Camps, Retreats, Service
Camps also play a significant part of faith formation and spiritual renewal for our young people. Each summer our group enjoys a week-long summer camp. Additionally, we have an overnight retreat each semester that includes play, food, and a ministry projects in the community.
