Though there are many different questions surrounding how and why youth ministry ought to be done, Capitol City has sought to answer those questions in a way that is biblically faithful and which we believe will be of greatest benefit to the teens in our church, along with the broader community. We believe that, though they are immature in their worship now, teenagers will become expert worshipers of something as their lives go on. This demonstrates the importance of teaching and providing opportunities for God-centered worship during this formative time in their lives. The students at Capitol City are also trained to be on mission in their approach to interacting with the world around them.
We desire to see teens treasuring, proclaiming, and growing in the Gospel. So, we gather together to bring glory to God through 1) the preaching and teaching of his word; 2) small group fellowship and discipleship; and 3) singing praises to him because of the joy of our salvation. These activities happen in various ways throughout our Wednesday night Sojourn ministry and Sojourn Sunday Morning ministry.
We want to experience God in spirit and in truth. To this end, we do not over-emphasize cultural relevance, offer moralism as a way to earn favor with God, or preach theology divorced from application. The time we spend together serves to equip teens for Christian ministry and, specifically, for evangelism both locally and globally.
Our 6 - 12 grade students meet at the following times:
Sojourn Sunday Mornings: 9:00a in the Social Hall
Wednesdays: 6:30-8:00p in the Student Chapel (during the school year)
