SYATP tshirtsThe Point Ministry

Location: Blanchard Church of Christ
The Point Ministry here at Blanchard Church of Christ is the Student Ministry.  It is designed to minister to and with students in 6th through 12th grades and their families.  Above all, we exist to Love God, Love People and the Serve the World! The Point consists of four specific ministry areas currently: Morning Point–This is a time on Sunday mornings for students to come together in either a Guys’ or Ladies’ class to study the Bible and relevant ideas for their lives.   They both take place at 10:00 am on Sundays. Main Point–This is a time on Wednesday evenings for teens to come and hang out in our youth center.  During this time, we normally have some time just to hang out and enjoy a snack from our cafe.  It also generally includes some time of worship, a message and fun activities.  Some weeks we will be going out in the community for service projects or fun activities as well. During the summer, the group is “off campus” for special activities and events and meets at different times depending on the activity. 

Midpoint–This is an event specifically designed for Middle School students.  It is a six week long event two different times during the school year.  It takes place right after school on Thursday afternoons, once each semester of the school year, typically in September/October and January/February.  During this event, students come to the church right after school for a snack, homework time, a short devotion and a lot of fun!
High Point – This 6-week program takes place in the fall and in the spring each year.  High School students meet at various eating establishments (such as Brothers Pizza, Avenue 209, Dunkin’Donuts and The Ice Shack) around the community for a time of connection and Bible study.  Students are picked up after school and are transported to the location of the week.
