What we're talking about
We'll be spending all of October and November working through the Scriptures as we look at things like worrying, talking with God, the power of our words, resting, what "God's kingdom" is, and even baptism. Jesus calls us to love Him with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind – so feel free to join us every Wednesday night as we eat, sing, talk, and study the Scriptures together.
Who we are
We're middle & high school students in the Portland area learning to follow Jesus. We do this through spending time together in the Scriptures & bringing His kingdom into our homes and schools.
We're created to be with people. Because of that, we gather together each Wednesday from 7–9pm at our Westside church for food, teaching, & discussion groups as we posture ourselves to encounter Jesus.
We believe church is much more than a Sunday gathering. Families & leaders open their homes and invite friends over to share a meal. We partner with local schools & campuses through serving.
We know a ton of you are excited and passionate about wanting to serve and lead at AJESUSYOUTH — that's awesome and we want to help you develop as leaders through serving. On November 27th we'll be launching Middle and High School student leadership teams; simply make sure you've signed up for the YOUTH Newsletter (below) to be the first to know when more info becomes available!
Bible in one
God created the world and gave it to people so they could build, cultivate, and move it forward — unfortunately people chose not to trust their Creator and in a moment life as they knew it forever changed; it was no longer how it was created to be. But God didn't give up on humanity. He came to us in the person of Jesus to make all things new and we're being called to help Him make the world new again! We call this story 'the Bible'. In January we'll begin a challenge to read through the Bible in one year!
