Youth Ministry

The Princeton Church of Christ has enjoyed a rich tradition of an active teen ministry over many years.  Grades 7-12 (13-18 years old) comprise the teen youth ministry.  There are Sunday morning Bible classes provided for this young group of people.   Other opportunities to grow spiritually involve going to area wide youth rallies, youth advance seminars, and summer camp at Camp Manatawny. See  www.manatawny.org for details about this marvelous Christian camp.

Princeton is very fortunate to have two interns working with the youth, John Paul Cooke and Lauren Calvin-Cooke.  They are attending Princeton Theological Institute and are required to have some internship and Princeton was able to provide this for them.   

Summer Activities:  This summer the youth group had trips to Six Flags Great Adventure, Summer Youth Series in Delaware (fellowship with other church youth groups in the tri-state area), plus there is an upcoming young ladies' night out and young men's night out for the teens. Some of the youth in the past have gone on mission trips to Guatemala, Peru, and other distant lands.  Teens not only get together to have fun by going bowling, playing games, but also participate in community service projects.

Fall Activities:  During the Fall, Princeton teens have historically traveled to youth rallies in the tri-state area, and been involved in other activities.  Teens are involved in Feeding the Needy in Trenton, NJ., which occurs every second Saturday of the month.  Every year the Princeton youth group combines with other members of the church to sing to the elderly. 

Winter Activities:  There is a planned trip next year to Winterfest 2010 (February 19-21) in Gatlinburg, TN. Check out www.winterfest.org for further details.

Spring Activities:  The Princeton church takes pride in honoring its teen graduates.  We do this by publicly acknowledging the achievements of these high school graduates through highlighting their accomplishments in school, presenting gifts to them, having them display portraits of their lives growing up,  a fellowship meal after morning service, and then listen to friends and family offer memories of  maturing over time.

The Princeton church is actively preparing the next generation to handle the problems and challenges of tomorrow.  We believe that the best way to equip our young people to do this is to foster an atmosphere of positive growth in God's word, and that is what we are doing.
