Embrace Youth has two goals for middle and high school students:

  1. To find their identity in Christ, rather than in the world. 
    (Genesis 5:2, Colossians 3:1-32 Corinthians 5:17Romans 12:2)
     

  2. To live as God called them to live: doing good works and loving one another.
    (Deuteronomy 15:7-8, Ephesians 2:10, Galatians 6:2John 15:12, Matthew 22:36-40, 1 Peter 4:8)

We accomplish this life/outlook change during weekly small-group meetings and once-a-month large-group worship gatherings (described below).

SUNDAY EVENING GATHERINGS

4:30 - 6:00pm

Every Sunday except the last Sunday of the month (more on that below) we gather at Auburn Christian Fellowship (315 S. Gay St., Auburn, AL 36830) for hangout time with each other followed by worship, a message, a game or activity, and structured small group conversations directed by our adult leaders. Worship, the message/teaching, and games take place in large group settings, while small groups give students an opportunity to discuss the lesson and life with their same gender and age range. 

O/A SUNDAYS

4:30 - 6:30pm

O/A Sundays (short for "Out and About" or "Opelika/Auburn" Sundays) are always the last Sunday of the month. On O/A Sundays we gather to do something out of our usual Sunday routine: sometimes a meal at a restaurant, sometimes a service project, sometimes a hangout session on Samford Lawn. This is an awesome way to have our youth engage together not only in church-based worship but also in community-based fellowship and mission.
