Here at Dalworth Park Church of Christ, the Youth Ministry has been given a vision by God. There are five things we feel our youth need upon reaching adulthood and keeping their commitment to Christ. That is to be more selfless, more integrated with Christ, more family-focused, to have a deeper relationship with God, and a commitment to ministry and service. As they make these major adjustments, we want our youth to remember to always keep God first and everything else will fall in to place.

Jesus’ life was about others. He lived to serve others. He died to save others. He rose to set others free from the chains of death. Everything He did was for others. We want our youth to understand this. Jesus said that they will find life by losing theirs for the sake of others.
More INTEGRATED into the church body.
Often when a youth graduates from high school, they have difficulties in transitioning into the next stage of their lives, particularly in relating to the church. For many youths, the “Youth Group” is all they know of church. When they no longer have that; there is a strong sense of displacement. In an effort to help these graduating youth adjust; we want to connect them with as many mature Christian adults as possible. We want to encourage the youth to interact more with their families, and other members of the congregation so that the “Youth Group” will not be their only experience of the “church”.
Today’s world is extremely busy, and it is difficult for families to have time to spend together. It is imperative that they do. We want to encourage positive interaction between youth, their parents, and families to grow closer in their relationship with God.
Have a DEEPER relationship with God.
Christianity is about a relationship with God through Jesus Christ with the help of the Holy Spirit. We encourage our youth to focus their time and energy on getting to know who God is and understanding how God sees them because of His great love for them. It is not about rules; it is about the relationship.
COMMITTED to Ministry and Service.
We want our youth to be active members of the Lord’s body. We want them to be trained to see the needs of those around them and to know how to respond and help. We want them to be servants for CHRIST!!!
Here at Dalworth Park Church of Christ, we’re coming from behind these four walls to meet you in the streets to share the good news about God’s word. Our goal is to seek souls in the community where the church sits and invite everyone in to fellowship with us as our guest.

Bring-A-Friend-Sunday – Sharing God’s Word:
At Dalworth Park every third Sunday of each month has been designated as Bring-A-Friend-Sunday.
Evangelism occurs easily within existing relationships verses talking to strangers. We tend to have credibility with our friends and family members, and they are more likely to take the gospel seriously. To those of us who have non-Christian friends or relatives should be aware of the opportunity that we have to reach these friends and loved ones for Christ. Part of our motivation for sharing the gospel with others is the vision of seeing our friends find Christ and grow spiritually.
We should ask for prayer support from Christian friends in reaching these people. We then should patiently and carefully endeavor to share the grace of God with them.

Hook Line and Sinker:
The Dalworth Park Community Outreach Committee is excited to introduce the “Hook Line and Sinker” engagement activity for our youth from 8yrs - high school age students. This engagement will prepare for the outreach in the community. Our goal is to engage immediately. This activity will include our youth that will model the enthusiasm for learning about God and positive spirit of sharing what they learned. This is the hook, line & sinker we’ll use for youth coming in from the outside.
The participants will take notes during the sermon and after the morning announcements are made, questions will be asked to the children about the sermon. The children will be allowed to answer within their age group and questions catered at the age level of the participant. There are incentives attached to this activity and the participant will be awarded at the time they answer the questions as seem acceptable. Basic questions will be submitted before the announcements by Bro. Royal or a designated committee member. They will be asked questions related to the sermon only. The correct answer earns a prize!
