The word progeny means offspring or something resulting (from something else). HWM Youth Group will be aptly named "God's Progeny" for we are the offspring of GOD, by the spirit of adoption (Romans 8:15).
We, being the children of God, came to be through the Love and Sacrifice of Jesus Christ. According to John 1:9-14, Jesus came to the earth as the true Light showing us the way to the Father, for as many to receive Him and believe on His name, He gave power to become the SONS OF GOD. It is that simple!
Purpose of God's Progeny
The purpose of this youth group is to address the issues that preteens and teens face. Being a teenager can be confusing and rough. They want to be independent but are not yet old enough to handle the responsibility that comes with independence. Parents and teens get annoyed with each other and claim that the other just doesn't understand. Being a Christian Teenager can be equally stressful as well as frustrating. Questions on how to handle different situations arise and often the answers are hard to come by. This age group is susceptible to worldly pressures more so because thoughts of being an outcast can plague them. This can hinder their witness and walk with God. God's Progeny's purpose is to foster: Growth in God's Word, Contagious Faith, Empowerment through Christ, and Everyday Holiness.
