Tyrone Youth Ministry (TYM) is a group of young women and men (6th-12th) gathering together to discuss and learn the Word of God. We desire to strengthen our faith in our Lord and Savior, glorify and love God, serve together, and build lasting relationships. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27
Our Sunday morning classes meet from 9:00-10:00 before the worship service and provide a more in-depth understanding of the Bible. These classes are meant to spark an interest in the Bible and in God. Currently, the junior high is studying the book of Genesis and God’s covenants with his people, and the senior high is studying the book of Psalms and how there is a psalm that speaks to every area of your life.
Our large group gathering meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00 at the church for a time of fellowship, games, worship, discipleship, and teaching. This is a great opportunity for the youth to get to know each other better and to hear how the Bible applies directly to their lives. Beginning in January, our theme is “What is the Bible?”, exploring topics such as canonicity, inerrancy, and genre, designed to answer both Christians’ and non-Christians’ questions about Scripture and equip both to read it for themselves. (We will not be meeting on December 25 or January 1.)
On the first Friday of every month, TYM gets together for a time of fun and fellowship. First Friday events could be anything from board game night at the church to seeing a Flint Firebirds hockey game. Please check Tyrone’s calendar for updates.
