Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it
Soul Impact is our Wednesday night Senior High program, and it is awesome! We begin with some hangout time downstairs at First Reformed Church (Soul Impact is a joint ministry of Faith and First Reformed) at 6:15pm. At 6:30 everyone is called together and we join with the Junior High students for a joint contemporary praise time. Around 6:50 the two groups break up again and the High School students hear a message given by Jeremy, First Reformed’s Youth Director. We finish our night by breaking into small groups by age and gender for discussion and application of the message. All Senior High Students (grades 9 through 12) are welcome to join us!
J-Teams is our small group Bible study program for Senior High students. Students gather in small groups according to age and gender and, along with an accompanying adult leader, study together, share each others lives, pray and grow together. Talk to Eric to get involved today!
The Freshmen and Sophomores go through a class called Questions Worth Asking, which is a fresh look at the Heidelberg Catechism. This class gives them a good understanding of Reformed Theology and opportunities to apply it. Juniors and Seniors deepen their understanding of the Gospel, the attributes of God, and the Church.
Fort Wilderness Retreat
Each year our High School students take a retreat to Fort Wilderness, in McNaughton, WI (about 10 minutes from Rhinelander). This retreat is awesome, and we have a great time every year. In fact, as you can see here, we’ve already begun counting down the days until next year!
We play snow football, cross country ski, ice skate, ride horses, hang out in their coffee house, and play broomball – lots of broomball! And the best part is the spiritual growth we share together. Over the years, we've seen many students come to faith in Christ through the proclamation of His Gospel. Don't miss out on next year's trip!
Annual Summer Trip
Each year, the high schoolers take a week-long trip. In the odd years, they travel out-of-state to serve on a mission trip. Students have the opportunity to serve others with their hands and feet, and to share Christ's love with children and other residents of the communities they serve in. In the even years, they attend a camp in Illinois. There, they enjoy strong teaching and fellowship. Both of our summer opportunities give students the chance to grow in their faith and live it out.
