Stronghold – Sr. Youth Group

Nahum 1:7 states: “The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.” A stronghold is a place we go to in times of distress for safety and to prepare for battle. Our Lord Jesus says that in this world we will have tribulation but take heart for He has overcome the world. We know that the High School years are filled with distress and tribulation, there are many temptations to find safety in places, situations or people that will lead astray and down dangerous paths towards trusting in weak, crumbling worldly ways that provide no protection.

Stronghold will be a place for them to run to in times of distress and will be a place to prepare them for such times in their life. Here they will spend time with their peers growing in the faith, encouraging one another in their battles and growing closer as brothers and sisters in Christ as they journey through this world. They will gather together to study God’s Word, hang out together creating lifelong bonds, reach out to their community, and go into the world making disciples by pointing them to our only stronghold in this world – Jesus Christ, the one who suffered and died in our place.
