"Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving." -- Colossians 2:6-7
The ARP Youth Ministry at Bartow exists to provide Middle School and High School youth an opportunity to engage with the scriptures together in the church, community, and the world. Through regular Youth Group meetings, Bible-studies, and other gatherings we hope to help make disciples who worship, evangelize, and serve as a covenant community through Christ-centered, Biblically-ordered ministry. Sign-up to receive periodic newsletters with events, resources, news, and updates about the Youth Ministry at the ARP church.
Our Youth Group for Middle School and High School students meets Sunday nights from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm. We gather for a game, dinner, prayer, song, and study. Come and join other youth in searching the scriptures and serving Christ! There is also a Wednesday night study offered for the Youth during our Mid-week Fellowship.
Sabbath School classes are offered for our Middle School and High School students and taught by a number of wonderful teachers. Both classes meet upstairs on the third floor (behind the church organ). We'd love for you to join us at 9:30 am in the Fellowship Hall, with classes following.
A number of discipleship groups meet to study and discuss God's word and its application to our daily lives. Join us Wednesday eveinings (beginning Feb. 21st, 2018) at 6:00pm for dinner followed by Discipleship Groups:
Middle School Girls: Contact Megan Simmons
High School Girls: Contact Kristi Joyner

Each year the Youth at the ARP Church participate in Summer Conferences and the Florida Presbytery youth retreat. These offer students a getaway from the distractions and worries of their hectic lives to focus on fellowship and learning more of God through His word. We'd love for you to join us for one of these refreshingly fun and meaningful opportunities. Visit the CEM website for more details about the Summer Conferences and contact Zach with any questions regarding the Florida Presbytery youth retreat.
In addition to the various regular, local opportunities we have to serve and share - the Youth have access to camps and trips where they can join other youth as they put their God-given gifts to use. Opportunities include: SAHWC (Work Camps), Thanksliving, the Atlanta Mission Trip, Camp Joy, VBS, and others as they become available. Contact Zach for any information and with any questions.
