Sandbridge Community Chapel Youth Group
The Youth Group meets once a week throughout the entire year. We stick to the Virginia Beach City Public School schedule. In March, we kick off regular Sunday night youth group meetings for middle and high school students from 6:30-8:15 pm in the Community Center. We offer a wide range of opportunities outside of regular youth group meetings. These range from local Friday night off campus special events to service opportunities with JCOC, summer mission trips, weekend retreats, Sunday School, Confirmation, High School Bible Study/Leadership group and girls small group meetings. In the summer, when school is out, we suspend our Friday night missions and begin Surf Club. We meet every Saturday morning from 9-11 am for a time of surfing/swimming, hanging out and a sermon and prayer. Our mission is to provide a mentally, physically and emotionally safe environment where students can grow in their relationship with God and one another through various opportunities.
In 2015 the youth group had their first trip to Popoyo, Nicaragua to build a house for a family and teach a Vacation Bible School for the local children. In the summer of 2016 the youth group sent two separate groups on different weeks to again build a house for a family and teach Vacation Bible School in addition to many other projects. The relationships being built with the small Nicaraguan community and Sandbridge Community Chapel are a blessing to all involved.
