At Allisonville Christian Church, getting involved with the youth program is an opportunity to strengthen personal faith and develop friendships with peers in a fun, supportive Christian environment. The program emphasizes practical application of the Christian faith to daily living and commitment to Christian service. Groups are open to all youth who want to participate. Seeking God together, youth and sponsors work as a team to serve others and build a sense of community.
Youth at Allisonville participate in two groups: Christian Youth Fellowship (CYF) and Chi Rho. CYF is specifically for young adults who are in grades 9 through 12. ChiRho is specifically for teenagers who are in grades 6 to 8. Both groups provide a spiritual fellowship to people of a similar age, who can relate to some of the problems and experiences that teenagers and young adults face on their journey to adulthood. CYF and Chi Rho believe in the spirit of community and promote community involvement and social interaction with the Indianapolis community as a whole.
Junior Youth Fellowship (JYF) is for those in grades 3rd through 5th grade who will hang out, pray, read scripture, share in mission work, play games, and have lots of fun getting to know each other and more about our church! They meet once a month at the same time as youth group – after the 11 am service on Sunday’s.
Christian Youth Fellowship (CYF)
Christian Youth Fellowship is a group for high school youth. CYF youth at Allisonville have many opportunities for experiences that increase their understanding of community, spirituality, and Christian service. These include participation in regional fall and spring retreats, mission projects throughout the year, and plenty of fun activities.
Chi Rho is a fellowship group for middle school youth. The name is derived from the first two letters for the Greek word for Christ, “Cristos” – Chi and Rho. Chi Rho youth may participate in many activities, which range from discussions about current issues to crazy games, regional fall and spring retreats, various mission projects, annual summer camps, and lots of fun fellowship events.
