It is the purpose and commitment of the Pomona Church of Christ Youth Group to gain a greater knowledge of the truth of God’s word, to spread his gospel to the world, and to serve him by service to others while building strong Christian bonds through fellowship and unity with one another.

Goals of the Youth Program

  • To encourage our young people, through study and fellowship, to obey the gospel by being baptized for the remission of sins, to take on a life of service to God, and gain the reward of Heaven.
  • To instruct and train young Christians in the leadership roles necessary to maintain and further the Lord’s church and to provide them with opportunities to exercise what they learn.
  • To build a unified and loving youth group through fellowship and service activities that help build strong relationships and offer an environment that is safe physically and emotionally.
  • To promote an open and positive line of communication between young people, their parents, and church leadership.
