If you are in high school, join us for fellowship, teaching, and connecting at AmGAP!
Even though our regular rhythm of youth ministry at RBC has been halted by COVID-19, we still believe God is working. While we are still making preparations to meet together in person, you will be able to find the weekly GAP messages on this page.
From the guidelines we have been given by the elders at RBC, we can meet in person with small to midsize groups if we do so outside with social distancing and inside if we use face masks. We have set up a schedule over the next four weeks to rotate through each of our four classes on Tuesday and Thursday nights at the Youth Building. We would LOVE to be able to see and talk with you in person! The first hour we will be doing some group games as well as other activity options – including 9-Square in the Air, Corn Hole, Can- Jam, and hanging out. The second hour we will gather and get to worship together, hear from the students, be challenged in the Word, and talk about how to live it out. There is no-sign up or registration needed. If you have any questions please email email@example.com. Here is the schedule:
Freshmen (2023) – June 16 and June 30
Sophomores (2022) – June 18 and July 2
Juniors (2021) – June 23 and July 7
Seniors (2020) – June 25 and July 9
We will meet via Zoom on Sunday nights from 7-9 pm for Virtual Summer Shepherd Groups. This summer we will be watching a series by Andy Stanley called “You’re Not The Boss Of Me.” It is a GREAT series digging into where our emotions come from and how they don’t have to be the boss of us. After watching these you will realize how much our emotions control us. In the beginning will have different themed trivia with prizes, a time of worship, then watch the video via screen share on Zoom and finally break out into gender-specific small groups for discussion on the video and prayer. Each Sunday the Zoom link will be mailed out. There is no signup or registration needed. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be six Summer Shepherd Groups; here are the dates:
On the evening of Wednesday, July 15, the Senior High Summer Mission Teams will be welcoming the Rising Freshmen into the Sr. High. We want this to be a time where the Rising Freshmen can get to know us as we get to know them as we transition into the 2020-2021 school year. This event is an important bridge to integrate the Rising Freshmen into the Senior High as the transition can be difficult. With many unknowns in life right now we want the Sr. High to be a welcoming community for the Class of 2024. This event will be in person at Reston Bible Church. There is no registration or sign up for this. If you have any questions please email email@example.com.
This summer we will be in the book of Proverbs working through a series called “Acquire Wisdom”. It is a follow-up to Pastor Mike’s encouragement to the youth at RBC to prioritize gaining wisdom. We will be looking at 8 specific nuggets of wisdom that our teens need to hear and take to heart. We strongly encourage parents to watch these with their students and use it as a study you can discuss and apply. You can watch all of the messages here. The AmGAP messages will be available on Sunday mornings, but you can watch them when it’s best for your family. We are looking to having AmGAP GO LIVE in the future. We will keep you posted.
