AYS The Ministry for YOUTH
The Bronx Church is 'home of the ‘11 North American Division Adult Bible Bowl Team; and we are once again prepping for a championship trophy for 2019! At the Bronx Seventh-day Adventist Church, we believe that reading the Bible is an important part of life and have developed a thriving Bible Bowl Ministry (ages 6 and above) which is intended to encourage menbers of the Church to study the Word of God and to find enjoyment while doing so. After not competing for several years, in 2005 we once again ventured into the competition with junior and senior teams. In 2011, we entered with five teams and our adult team, not only won the Conference championship, but went on to win the National Championship in their division.
The AY Department is committed to leading young people to Christ, that's our goal and our mission. The leadership, along with the sponsors realize that only when you are connected to Christ does peace, joy, contentment, fulfillment and happiness become part of one's life. And we are committed to sharing this realization with other young people.
This department believes that bible study, social christian-interaction and church involvement help to strengthen the spiritual stamina and development necessary to prepare our young people for service in this world and the joys and privileges of the world to come in a way that no other combination can.
The home, the church and the school is the triad from which all decisions and actions emanate. Consequently, Mitch and his council are absolutely committed to upholding the church's influence.
Christian socialization is evident by the church support given to our basketball teams, youth retreats, summer camp sponsorships, etc.
We encourage the pursuit of bible knowledge by sponsoring several teams to the annual Bible Bowl competitions. Several youth days and other activities are scheduled throughout the year to promote church involvement.
We've revamped FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE into SPOKEN WORD Cafe for 2018 and will schedule the fellowship, with guest speakers, musical artists plus our open-mic feature is quite popular. For the first 6 months, they will meet the 1st and 3rd Friday Nights of each month.
