WHO WE ARE:

S  -  SPIRITUALLY

IT'S NO SECRET THAT WE LIVE IN A POST-CHRISTIAN WORLD. HERE AT S.N.A.I.L. WE REKINDLE THE FIRE AND FEED THE FLAME; THAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD AND HIS WORD MIGHT BURN BRIGHTLY.  

 

N  -  NAVIGATING

S.N.A.I.L. AIMS TO PROVIDE A STRONG ALTERNATIVE TO THE DESIRES AND TEMPTATIONS WE AS CHRISTIANS FACE ALONG OUR JOURNEY; GIVING DIRECTION TOWARDS THE WORD AND PROMOTING A LIFE LIVED ABUNDANTLY IN CHRIST AND FULL OF PURPOSE.

 

A  - ADOLESCENTS

BEING A TEENAGER IS HARD ENOUGH, WITHOUT THE STRUGGLE OF FITTING IN. S.N.A.I.L. EMPHASIZES THE IMPORTANCE OF BELONGING, AND GIVES ALL HIGH SCHOOL TEENS A COMMUNITY TO THRIVE IN.

 

I  -  INTO

WE CONSTANTLY HEAR ABOUT AND SEE PEOPLE LEAVING THE FAITH FOR WHATEVER REASON. HERE, WE FIGHT THE PROBLEM AT THE CORE; KEEPING VIGILANT IN THE FAITH WITH A CONSTANT YEARNING TO DIG DEEPER.

 

L  -  LOVE

NOTHING BRINGS HUMANS CLOSER TOGETHER THAN LOVE. HERE AT S.N.A.I.L. WE GET IT. WE STRIVE TO TEAR DOWN OUR WALLS AND LET LOVE IN. LOVE OF GOD, LOVE OF OTHERS,LOVE OF SELF.

 

MISSION STATEMENT:

Striving to build a community and lasting relationships by drawing closer to Christ, both as individuals and as His people. We live with purpose, love intentionally, and laugh often. Long live the SNAIL(s)!

 

Scriptural Charge:

Micah 6:8   “What does the lORD require of you? You are to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your God.” 

We GATHER

     EVERY SUNDAY WE COME TOGETHER ON THE THIRD FLOOR OF THE CHURCH FROM 6:00 TO 8:00pm. DURING THIS TIME, WE ENJOY A SNACK, PLAY SOME GAMES, HAVE A LESSON AND DISCUSSION. WE CLOSE THE NIGHT OUT WITH “CANDLE POWER” A SPIRITUALLY CHARGED CONVERSATION DETAILING THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF OUR WEEK APART. OUR WEEKLY GATHERING IS DESIGNED TO GIVE US FOOD FOR THE JOURNEY AND CHARGE OUR SPIRITS UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN.   

 

We GROW

     THROUGHOUT THE WEEK THE GROUP KEEPS IN TOUCH THROUGH A FACEBOOK PAGE AND CHAT FEED. WE ALSO HAVE A SNAPCVHAT CIRCLE AND A TWITTER FEED. THE GROUP USES THESE SOCIAL MEDIAS TO COMMUNICATE HOW THE SPIRIT IS WORKING IN THEIR LIVES AND WHERE THEY JESUS ON THE DAY-TO-DAY. THE MEDIAS ARE ALSO USED TO ANNOUNCE LOCAL OR UPCOMING EVENTS AND COMMUNICATE WITH PARENTS.

 

We Go

     EVERY YEAR THE SNAIL YOUTH GROUP DOES A LARGE TRIP THAT REQUIRES FUNDRAISING. THE GROUP ALRTERNATES BETWEEN SUPPORTING A MISSION HOUSE CALLED “HOUSE OF THE CARPENTER” IN WHEELING WEST VA, AND ATTENDING A LOCAL CHRISTIAN MEDIA FESTIVAL CALLED CREATION. NEXT YEAR, THE CREATION MUSIC AND MEDIA FESTIVAL WILL BE CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF GLORIFYING GOD. BOTH OF THESE TRIPS WE FEEL GIVE THE KIDS OF SNAIL YOUTH GROUP THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONNECT TO THE WORLD AND REALIZE THAT GOD'S MISSION FIELD IS BIGGER THAN NEW CASTLE PA.

 

WE PLAN

     THE SNAIL YOUTH WOULD LIKE TOI SHARE THESE DATES WITH YOU AS THE MAJOR EVENTS CURRENTLY ON THE SNAIL CALENDAR:
