  • Georgetown Young Life

    We invite kids to follow Christ, care for them regardless of their response, and change lives in the process. Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don't happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.


    We hold a Young Life Club every Monday as long as GISD has school, 7:37pm. Every high schooler in Georgetown is invited. No exceptions.


    Young Life leaders who may be college volunteers or caring adults build relationships with high schoolers, lead them in “Campaigners” which is a small group environment where we talk about like, the bible and pray together.


    Young Life camp is the highlight of the year. Kids sign up to visit a Young Life camp in Colorado for a week with their local leaders.


    Georgetown Young Life Camp:

    ● Every summer our area takes approximately 50 students from both local high schools to experience a week in Jasper Colorado.

    ● In addition to the high schoolers we take 7 volunteer college leaders.

    ● This week students are able to hear the story of the Gospel while being in nature, (without their phones) and with caring leaders.

    ● Students who would like to start a relationship with Jesus or learn more about the bible then go home and start a Campaigners group with their leaders.

    ● The goal is always to plug students into a local church where they feel

    comfortable and welcome.

    ● The cost is $800 per student which covers transportation, food, and fun

    activities.


    2017 - 42 campers (majority GHS students)

    2018 - 51 campers (about 65% GHS students)

    2019 - goal of 50 campers (likely 50% EVH and GHS)

Lent Season at St. John's

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday.  Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means "spring."  The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry.  To learn more about the Lenten season in the United Methodist Church, visit www.umc.org.


The biggest week of Lent for St. John's is Holy Week which starts on Palm Sunday.  Join us as we welcome the King!
