At Center View Baptist Church, we recognize the importance of inspiring the next generation for Jesus Christ. Passing this faith to children and youth is both a great responsibility and an incredible privilege. Since they will be our future church and community leaders it is our goal to show them who Jesus is so they in turn can show others.
Not only are there pizza parties, lock ins and ice cream socials, there are also Bible Studies to engage their minds and projects to encourage them in giving back to the community and helping those who are in need. Our youth have been involved in drama for fun and entertainment and drama that draws your heart toward God. They deliver fruit baskets to the shut ins at Thanksgiving and help feed the homeless at the Corner Table in Newton. They go to Samaritans Purse in Boone to help pack shoe boxes, clean houses and yards for people in need, and collect grocery bags which when folded, cut and crocheted become mats for the homeless.
Each summer our youth enjoy Caswell Summer Camp for a week which offers them an opportunity to connect with other churches and renew their relationship with the Lord. Our youth have enjoyed mission trips to North Carolina, Vermont, Kentucky, and several of our youth have gone outside the U.S. to Brazil, Africa and El Salvador.
