By God’s grace, we make it our aim to put Colossians 2:6-7 into practice. We receive Christ and his salvation by believing the gospel. We walk in him by living in a way that is consistent with the gospel. And we abound in thanksgiving as we rejoice in the gospel. That’s 267, to believe, live and rejoice in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The 267 student ministry strives to hold to three commitments:
- Our first commitment is to build students into Christ. We will do all in our power to help them know Jesus Christ, love Him, and live for Him.
- Our second commitment is to build students into their parents. We strive for this by asking parents to attend FUSION meetings, retreats, missions trips, and other events with their teens to promote interaction and fellowship between one another.
- Our third commitment is to build students into the church. Our hope and prayer is that these young adults will be functioning and fruitful members of the local church by the time they graduate from high school. We pray that during these teen years there will be an overlapping parental—pastoral responsibility for their teens. We desire to prepare parents and teens for this transition, that it might be as smooth and natural as possible, and that the resulting structure of pastoral authority and parental influence might be as healthy as can be. Part of that transition also involves teens developing relationships with other godly, mature men and women at SGC who can be intentional to build the teens into a deeper relationship with God, with parents, and with the church.
267 families meet the second Wednesday night of each month, from 6:30-8:30pm for worship, teaching, discussion groups, and fun! There are also many other opportunities for study, serving, outreach, and social activities scheduled throughout the calendar.
