ABOUT

Our Goal at 220 is to introduce the gospel in a real way to our students and cultivate an authentic relationship with Jesus. In partnership with families, the youth ministry of 220 exists to engage 100% of the students under its care, to train them to live independently in Christ, and to send them out as exceptional, Godly men and women of integrity who will transform their homes, their schools, their churches, their workplaces, and their worlds for Christ. The origin of our name is from Galatians 2:20 – “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

WHAT TO EXPECT

First you’ll have a little time to hang out with other students, we’ll usually play a game or two, and then you’ll hear a challenging message from God’s Word. This is the best place to get to know other students at Avalon Church.

BLESSED

In our world today, wouldn’t it be nice to know as a student that  happiness is not dependent on having even your most basic physical needs met? If “blessed” means “happy”, what was Jesus getting at when He said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit,” or “blessed are those who hunger and thirst”? Can we possess true and lasting happiness?

What is the purpose of this Beatitudes study? Christ, Himself, promised it would produce deep-down, abiding happiness.

WEEK ONE: True and Promised Happiness

WEEK TWO:  Hungry, Hungry Happiness

WEEK THREE:  Happiness in The Battle
