Sunday Nite Live & Small Groups
From 6-8pm on most Sundays throughout the school year (check dates here), any and all students in 6th-12th grade are invited to gather for Sunday Nite Live (SNL) and iGroups… our staple events in youth ministry.
Sunday Night Live
Sunday Night Live (SNL) is a weekly gathering of students that is welcoming, entertaining, challenging, thought provoking and a ton of fun. During SNL, students have opportunities to:
- Connect with other students and adult volunteer leaders
- Run around during a crazy game
- Spend time singing and worshiping together
- Be engaged in a challenging Biblical message
- Enjoy a delicious snack by our Snack Mamas!
On several occasions, we have special editions of SNL where we go all out on the craziness. These events include (but are not limited to) our Super Pre-Game Party and Gop & Goo. Each year, we have our our Super Pre-Game Party the first Sunday in February. We fill the worship space with inflatables, games and activities and of course we eat some awesome game day snacks! Our Gop & Goo is by far the messiest thing we take part in… where that old expired food and gross stuff ends up being used in some messy games that cause some to cringe and others to have a blast!
It is our hope that SNL and special events become places where students can get connected. With this in mind, students are ALWAYS encouraged to invite their friends to join them for SNL and iGroups!
When we refer to SNL as being HOPE Youth Ministry’s foundational program, Small Groups are the core of the program. Small Groups are small grade and gender based groups that meet during our Sunday night SNL time. In these times, students have the opportunity to talk about that evenings message, what is going on in their lives and challenge and encourage each other. We don’t wantstudents to get lost in the crowd. We desire a comfortable and safe place for them to be nurtured and discipled. Small Groups provide exactly that and sooo much more!
