The meaning of Nitro is interesting to say the least. The word was first used around the year 1881. It means to be a part of a group that is united with one. For the “NITRO” Youth group at Ebenezer, we believe there is only one God, we worship one God, we serve one God, We as a group desire to unite our hearts with this God. Our purpose is to understand the importance of having a personal relationship with JESUS CHRIST, becoming a reflection of JESUS CHRIST to others, and to share the love of JESUS CHRIST with our family, friends and others.
What Do We Do???
We keep busy by offering the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities. Here are some of the things we have done:
Destination Unknown: Everyone shows up and the only one that knows where we are going and what we will be doing is Chip. It could be a scavenger hunt, mini golf, activities in the home of a church family, or just about anything.
Day trips: These trips have included Cabela’s, shopping outlets, mini golf in Gettysburg, sky zone, corn maze, and others.
Big MAC Winter Slam: A February weekend retreat with several other youth groups in the mountains of western PA. The experience includes connecting with god, worship, and lots of fun activities.
Planet Wisdom: This is a discipleship weekend just south of D.C. Incredible spiritual growth and worship with some shopping thrown in.
Mission Trips: Following God’s leading, we have been to “Joy of Living Camp”, in Ohio, “Laurel Mission”, in Kentucky, Cherokee, N.C. and traveled to Poland and Haiti. Each year, we plan a trip, it may be in the united states or an international opportunity.
Local Missions: We are active in the local area. Working for congregation members, local camps, Christmas caroling, packing shoeboxes for operation Christmas child, and presenting dramas are all part of nitro youth ministry.
“THE CONNECTION” Our Quarterly Newsletter:
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of GOD’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to GOD—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what GOD’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.
