DURING THE COVID CRISIS:

During the Covid-19 Crisis Youth Group has gone digital!

While we can’t gather physically, we are stilling connected.  These are unique and different times and we understand the importance of staying connected to our students and their families.  So how are we doing this? Great question.

There are four ways to stay connected during the Covid-19 crisis:
  • Instagram (@emergencenj_youth) for daily devotionals and special announcements.
  • YouTube Channel (Emergence Student Ministry) for weekend teaching and worship videos.
  • Zoom for weekly small group times on Sunday evenings from 7:00p – 8:00p
  • Emergence Connect parents’ groups for weekly updates, information, and encouragements.
 
SUNDAY MORNINGS.
We encourage families to worship together, but in the case that parents would like an alternative for their middle school or high school students we provide suggested resources from Right Now Media.
  • If you would like access to Right Now Media please send me an email at [email protected] so we can get you set up.

SUNDAY EVENINGS.
Every weekend we provide teaching and worship videos on our Youtube channel (Emergence Student Ministry) that students watch ahead of small group time.
On Sunday evenings from 7:00 – 8:00p both middle school and high school student meet in their small groups on Zoom.

Growing toward Jesus--in every stage of life.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

From the beginning of Emergence we have consistently expressed how much we value having students as part of our congregation. We firmly believe that they are the future of Emergence.

The mission that we have for students is the mission that we have for our whole congregation: to Love Jesus, Love People, and Plow a Counter-Culture.

The goal for student ministry is to see young men and women discipled well. In partnership with the family we seek to build deep, meaningful, Christ-centered relationships with students, and over time, help them develop an authentic faith in Jesus Christ, so that they become well-equipped missionaries in North Jersey now, and wherever they may be called to in the future.

Intentionally investing in the next generation is so important, which is why discipleship needs to start early. Jesus spent three years pouring into his disciples. Just before he left them to be with the Father, he gave them a very clear command: “…go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you...” (Matt. 28:19-20a). Jesus took these final moments to reinforce how important discipleship was to him. In his letter to the church in Ephesus, Paul reinforced that discipleship shouldn’t be restricted to only adults when he tells them, “Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” (Eph 6:4).
Retreats & Special Events:
Throughout the year we’ll have a number of special events happening within eMS and eHS.
