Youth

Our youth love and laugh with their whole hearts.  They believe they can change the world and set out to do it.

Youth Sundays  9:15-10:15 am
This is an innovative and refreshing time to be a teen! Join the Youth Ministries on Sundays and make your mornings worthwhile! Topics and activities range, but a good time will always be had. Come find your why with us!

 

Youth Activities
Our youth get together every Sunday for Sunday School from 9:15am-10:15am. In addition, there are a host of times, places and dates for varied youth fun in order to meet the complex and ever-changing schedules of today’s teens. Throughout the year, we do service projects, host fundraisers and hang out together, playing Sardines, Broom Hockey, playing board games, as well as throwing parties and going to camps and conferences. We are always inventing FUN, simply and together! Every four years, we attend the Church of the Brethren National Youth Conference and travel somewhere in the world for a LVCOB Youth Work Camp. WHAT we do is ever-changing, but HOW we do it is always the same – enthusiastically! Looking for forms? Click Here

The La Verne Church of the Brethren youth are a fun-loving, vibrant, unique, personable, and pretty progressive bunch who engage in living out the values of being Christians in the 21st century, whether it be by organizing exciting functions (luncheons, talent shows, etc.) or experiencing things we wouldn’t normally get to experience (homeless lock-out, church tours, etc.). We strive to be open-minded and respectful, as well as acknowledging the needs of others less fortunate than us, like when we participate in the Christmas Shopping Spree for other families. — Paige
