Featured This Week – The Landing
A teen support ministry
For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord,
plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you a hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
The Landing is a Brookwood ministry designed to help students in grades 7–12 who are struggling to live their lives in a healthy, God-honoring way. It offers a path to freedom, healing and wholeness. The Landing is a unique experience. It’s structured as an ongoing, 52-week program, based on the beatitudes (Matthew 5:1–12) where Jesus laid out principles for happiness in the Sermon on the Mount.
The Landing is for Students in Grades 7–12
Meets every Thursday night
South Campus ● 6:30–8:30 pm
Dinner from 6–6:30 pm
Each week teenagers will meet with other teens who are traveling similar journeys. They'll spend time reading the Bible, discussing real-life circumstances, searching for answers to challenging situations, and encouraging one another. Above all, students can find healing and freedom through God’s love.
A few quotes from some of our current Landing participants:
- "I've gotten close to God and changed a lot (in a good way).”
- "Thank you for creating the Landing. This program saved my life."
- "The Landing is a safe place for your hurts or habits."
- "The Landing has really drawn me closer to God! The food is good too!"
- "The landing is one place I can go and just be me and not get judged or looked at weirdly."
The Landing is seeking leaders willing and able to invest in the lives of our students. If you are interested in helping with the Landing please email Brian Schwanbeck or call 864.688.8315.
