We’re pleased to announce a new partnership with Jones Road Chapel: Cleveland Young Lives! This wonderful program is committed to reaching teenage girls who are pregnant or have already entered the role of motherhood, by entering their world and modeling the unconditional love of Christ.1
There are more than 1 million teenage girls who become pregnant every year, and more than 500,000 of them become mothers. This makes YoungLives mission one that is ripe for harvest. We believe that we have an incredible opportunity to have a generational impact not only on the lives of teen girls facing the challenges of parenthood but on their children as well. Younglives is a life-on-life ministry that allows us to come alongside teen mom and their babies to offer acceptance, counsel, friendship, hope and love.1
Jones Road Chapel will be hosting their monthly CLUB meetings. YoungLives Club is commonly called “a two-hour mini sleepover, (without literally sleeping over)”. The two hour long meeting consists of high energy music, relationship building games, humorous skits, and a talk by a leader about the basics of the Christian faith. Club is casual, friendly, and geared towards kids who know little to nothing about Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. Our hope is that when a kid leaves club, they had a lot of fun, heard about Jesus Christ, and felt accepted by others. In YoungLives, we provide free transportation, childcare, as well as, a family style meal at our monthly club meetings.
The monthly club meetings are the 2nd Tuesday at Bethlehem Community Church located at 24490 Euclid Ave, Euclid, OH 44117 and 2nd Thursday at Jones Road Chapel located at 8000 Jones Rd, Cleveland, OH 44105 at 6:15pm-8:15pm1
