To view our Youth Ministry Statement click here.

Our desire is "to love youth on behalf of Jesus in hopes of loving them to Jesus." Our hope is that each youth that joins us and their families that walk beside them, come with a seeking heart, eager to know the love of Jesus Christ. Our Youth Ministry is intentional about offering you space and tools to encounter the living, loving Jesus so that your life may be transformed.

We are looking forward to meeting you and knowing you.  Please contact Tammy Pollock, Director of Youth Ministry to find out more information about our Youth Ministry.

The Invitation
 

Our prayer as we extend an invitation to each of you is that you would come with a seeking heart, eager to know Jesus Christ.  Our world is so full of opportunities and choices that it is easy to be involved in so many things.

 

Our youth ministry is intentional about offering you space and tools to encounter the living, loving Jesus so that your life may be transformed.

 

Please look through this website, pick an activity or two, and call someone you know to join you.  Come join us, come grow with us, and come worship with us as we seek God together.

 

Living in His Grace,

Tammy Pollock, Director of Youth Ministries

Middle School
 

“Come to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God’s temple… And now God is building in you, as living stones, into His spiritual temple.” - 1 Peter 2:4-6

 

Middle Schoolers, this is a time of fellowship, fun, focus on scripture, encounters with God, prayer, and small groups. Middle school is one wild & crazy time in your life and our hope is that at Cornerstone you will find a place that you can just be you! All youth 6th-8th grades are invited to join us for this incredible assemblage of awesome students! It won’t be the same without you!

High School
 

"Those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.” -John 4:14

High Schoolers, we know how very busy you are and want to honor all that you have going on in your lives… but just as Jesus came to the well to rest, get water, and be refreshed, we too need to rest and to receive the living water that only He can offer. We invite you to come to The Well for food, fun, fellowship, intentional spiritual community, prayer and nourishment for your souls so that you can go out into the rest of your week refreshed, renewed and full! All youth 9th-12th grades are invited to come and be a part of this incredible community!

Confirmation
 

Calling all 7th Graders!  This is your year to figure out your faith through Confirmation –faith formation!  Starting Wednesday night, January 6, at 6 pm we will have dinner and spend time going through our new book, “Way to Live,” journaling, engaging in fun activities, and talking about how our faith is lived out in our daily lives! Each Confirmand will have a Shepherd – guide, partner, faith friend—who will go with them through the process and meet with them once every week!  There will be two retreats and a few fun field trips as well!  Classes will continue through May 16!

Love Thy Neighbor
 

Unfortunately during the Covid pandemic we have had to suspend our LTN lunches and medical clinic per CDC guidelines. Please check back as restrictions change for future events.

Love Thy Neighbor is led by Centenary youth and is an outreach ministry to the homeless and marginally housed population of downtown Winston-Salem. In an effort to breakdown social barriers, we invite our neighbors to the church for a hot meal, bingo, a medical clinic, and fellowship once a month during the school year. We share this ministry as an expression of Christ's unconditional love.

Born out of a transformational experience at GLIDE church in San Francisco, our hope is that this ministry transforms our community and draws others into the presence of the living God and into serving Christ.

Summer Mission Trips 2021
 

As followers of Christ, we believe we are invited to go out into our community, and the world at large, to be the hands and feet of Jesus through mission work and serving others!  Each summer our Youth Ministry goes out into the world, serving the Lord, in two different places.  Our ‘ALL Youth’ in Mission Trip (6th - 12th graders) head to Mountain TOP (Tennessee Outreach Project) in June and our Senior High Mission (9th-12th graders) Trip partners with YouthWorks! to work in a different city or country every July.  These trips are life-changing, giving you the opportunity to encounter Jesus and truly live out the Gospel message to “love God and love Neighbor”. 

What is Mission? 

Webster defines mission as “a body of persons sent to perform a service or carry on an activity.”  In the Gospel of Matthew 25:31-46, Jesus tells us that what we do for one another, we do for Him.  So, mission is sending people out to serve others on Jesus’ behalf-clothing those who need to be clothed, feeding those who are hungry, helping those who are sick, visiting those who are in prison.  That is mission!  It is an outward response to an inward desire to go and do as Jesus calls us to. 

We hope you will pick one OR both of our trips and plan to join us! 

HOOPS4HIM
 

Hoops4Him is a citywide basketball league designed to be used as a tool by local churches to reach out to the youth of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County, NC with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. This year we have THREE teams participating—a Senior High Boys Team, Middle School Boys Team, and a Girls Team. Registration will open in the fall. For more information about Hoops4Him ministry check out the webpage HERE
