"When your son asks you in the time to come, 'What is the meaning of the testimonies and the statutes and the rules that the Lord, our God has commanded you?' Then you shall say to your son, 'We were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt. And the Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. And the Lord showed us signs and wonders, great and grievous, against Egypt and against Pharaoh and all his household, before our eyes. And he brought us out from there, that he might bring us in and give us the land that he swore to give to our fathers. And the Lord commanded us to do all these statues, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive as, we are to this day. And it will be righteousness for us, if we are careful to do all this commandment before the Lord, our God as he has commanded us."
This passage is important because it captures the vision of what catechism is, which is teaching the faith. So, when your son or daughter asks why we go to church, put your family into this story of salvation and gospel.
Catechism is not just about memorizing facts, but telling the story of how Jesus reached into your life and saved you. This is how we approach our youth ministry and youth groups here at Christ Church Westshore.
We meet for an hour a week; the first two weeks of the month, we meet to plays games and learn stories and lessons from the faith.
In the third week, we give back to the community in various ways.
Then the fourth week of the month, we either take off, or we come together for a game night.
The goal of our youth group is to capture the holistic vision of what it means to be a Christian as a teenager and as a young adult, learning it and then doing it.
If you are interested in getting involved with the Christ Church Westshore youth groups, contact Zach Jones via email, and we will help you find your place in our family!
