We consistently enforce some simple rules to help ensure that all students and volunteers feel welcome, accepted, and safe. The phrase "Stay SHARP" is an easy way to remember these expectations.
STAY WITH THE GROUP
We start upstairs in The Loft, and we will stay together the whole night unless otherwise instructed. Students should not be in any other part of the building without permission.
HANDS TO YOURSELVES
This rule covers everything from annoying pokes to holding hands with your significant other. (But this isn't just about hands! Keep your bodies to yourselves.)
AREA BEHIND THE COUNTER IS OFF-LIMITS
It may seem like a little thing, but this is a leaders-only zone.
RESPECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS
Show respect with your words, actions, and attitudes. Respect is key to self-worth and healthy relationships — especially as we help each other discover God's best for us.
Phones increasingly compete for attention during our group nights. Because we want students to fully enter into our community, we ask that all students commit to putting their phones away during youth group. We get that this is hard — and maybe even scary! And we will have grace as we all learn to break habits. But the general rule is this: We will give one warning; if the phone comes out again, the student will be asked to hand the phone over until it is time to head home.
