Catalyst happens every Wednesday night at 6:30pm. Meetings are held downstairs in the youth room and are a time to gather with friends in a fun and inviting atmosphere; laughing, learning, and living life together while being encouraged in God’s word.
What to Expect
Music, videos, games, relationships, prayer, worship, and relevant teaching from God's Word geared towards living out their faith.
In chemistry, catalysts interact with one substance in a reaction to pruduce a change in that substance that will facilitate the intended reaction with the other substance.
Like a catalyst, Christ came to earth to initiate transformation in the worldly order that produced hearts of a new creation, hearts and souls that now have access to our Father and to the Spirit (Eph. 2:18–19). In the glory of His presence, we are reconciled and restored to His likeness (2 Cor. 3:18). But the reaction does not stop here. We are charged to become like Christ, to become catalysts in this world. Through our transformation, we are established as ambassadors of Christ to share this message of reconciliation and transformation so that all may share in the intended reaction within God’s presence (Acts 1:8).
This ministry aims to develop a community for youth to enter into so they may encounter Christ. We desire to provide an environment of love and acceptance that meets each student where they are individually, while at the same time continuing to challenge and mature their spiritual transformation. Furthur discipleship must occur after initial transformation to develop each student to reflect Christ’s character in every aspect of their life. Our deepest desire is for the students to encounter Jesus in a personal and intimate way. Only through this personal encounter can they experience reconciliation and development into Christ’s ambassadors.
Our teens are learning how to grow in their faith, while serving others beyond our youth group. There are opportunities to assist as peer mentors with the Children’s Ministry, volunteer on different ministry teams in the church, and to work at Yellowstone Alliance Adventures as summer interns or counselors.
The Pumpkin Patch is a yearly fundraiser for the youth at First Alliance. The proceeds provide scholarships for students to attend a LIFE conference (held every 3 yrs), as well as providing funds for important community agencies such as Love INC, the Montana Rescue Mission, and helping needy students at Central Heights Elementary School.
