Welcome to Brookside Youth
Brookside Youth exists to see youth developed into fully engaged followers of Jesus. We work to see youth discover and explore the gospel, to live out their personal faith, and to share that good news with others.
Usually twice a month, we publish YouTube videos that explores a biblical concept to help youth grow in their faith. Although the videos are directed at youth, we encourage parents to watch them out too! That way we can all track along together.
Our Discord Server is the main way we host our youth programming during this season of COVID-19. Our server is monitored by our experienced and safe Brookside Youth Team. Although the server is just for youth, we encourage families to implement healthy online practices including frequently checking through your child’s online activities. This not only helps hold youth accountable but also encourages open, honest relationships between parents and children.
If you’re not familiar with Discord, it’s a group chat service with video call capabilities. We use it as a place for youth to connect with each other and youth leaders. Access to our server is screened and monitored by the Brookside Youth Team to ensure safety. Students in grades 6-12 are invited to join.
We check in with youth throughout the week on text chats in our Discord server. This is a casual way for youth leaders to build relationships with students. We also have weekly video/voice chats on Discord on Friday nights at 7:00-8:00 pm where we spend time discussing the teaching videos and just catching up.
When possible, we also have in-person gatherings. Be sure to join our email list so that you don’t miss out on these opportunities.
