Youth and Kids

St. Martin’s Youth Groups:

Youth Night: 6th – 12th grade meet Sunday nights from 6:00pm – 7:30pm in The Lodge (far end of the parking lot).


We’ll be starting a new series is called Sex & Dating.

Love, sex, and dating—did your heart rate go up a bit? It’s understandable if it did. These topics are tough to cover at any age, even more so with teenagers. But while these are tough topics, they are also necessary ones!

This three-lesson series will engage your teenagers in conversations that will provoke both deep honesty and a thorough engagement with the Bible and the person of Jesus. They’ll see what true love is, how to heal from past brokenness, and how to date while honoring Jesus.

Lesson 1: Defining Love (1 John 3:16–4:21)
Lesson 2: Dating and Relationships (Matthew 19:1-12)
Lesson 3: Sexual Wholeness (1 Corinthians 6:18-20)


  1. WHAT: Jesus desires that those who follow him know his thoughts for love, sex, and dating and where to find healing and forgiveness for a past of brokenness.
  2. WHY: Jesus-followers benefit from patterning their lives after Jesus’ thoughts regarding love, sex, and dating.
  3. HOW: Through discussing Scripture regarding sex, love, and dating, you can help students see the great value of walking with Jesus in this area of their lives.



Wednesday Kids Club – Kindergarten – 5th grade meet Wednesday nights. Family dinner at 5:30pm, and program from 6:00pm – 7:30pm.


We’ll be starting a new series called Gear Up: An Adventure in Kindness. For the entire month, we’ll be talking about Kindness – Showing other they are valuable by how you treat them.

God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Because of God’s love for us, we can be kind to everyone. Jesus modeled kindness, but He also commanded it. He taught us to treat others the way we want to be treated.

Verse of the month:

“You are God’s chosen people. You are Holy and dearly loved. So put on tender mercy and kindness as if they were your clothes. Don’t be proud. Be gentle and patient.” Colossians 3:12 NIrV
