Now, a good thing about these youth groups is that they require the active participation of parents as well. With the joint efforts of the youth group staff, the parents, and the youth members, the group can achieve success.
Religious education is also taught to the youth. During meetings, the youth leaders will lead the prayers, read scriptures from the Bible, do word reflections, conduct open discussions, and make a closing prayer. One way or another, the youth members will know God better.
Youth groups are voluntary but the youth leaders see to it that they organize challenging and fun events so that the junior high students will attend without being forced by the parents. The activities of the church youth group often include learning ethical lessons, improving socializing skills, and public service (church and community).
It can even include movies at the local church, dinner at local malls, river rafting, hiking trails, weekend trips, retreats, splashy trips, sight seeing, cave exploring, fund raising activities, and outreach programs. As you can see, these activities can help you in becoming more aware about the environment and at the same time, be closer to God.
