Explode Youth Ministry

  • We have a vibrant and growing youth ministry led by a dedicated team of leaders who's collective vision is to see the next generation grow in their love, knowledge, and fear of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Our groups usually meet on Fridays at the church at 730pm but we also like to go out and have fun so please check our schedule of activities below for upcoming events. Some of the things we like to do are bowling nights, go-kart, serving in community meals, sports activities, movie nights, praying for other people, and once a year we would have a Spring Break Retreat where we enjoy each others company in a spirit of fun, fellowship, and learning.
  • Do drop by and join us. We would love to enjoy your company.

Promise Land Children’s Church

The Promise Land Church is our Sunday school program for kids ages 4 to grade 7 where they can learn about the Bible while having fun.

  • Our schedule typically starts with our Children's Church at the Pre-K room just beside the gym where we sing a few songs together and pray before the kids are sent off to their respective classes
  • In each class the kids learn about the Bible through story telling, games, memory verses, and some arts and crafts
  • They all come back to the Pre-K room again for their snacks before they get picked up by their parents after the main church service



We are currently preparing for our annual Christmas Play in partnership with the Youth Ministry. All kids and parents involvement are highly encouraged.




Here are the lyrics to the songs to be practiced at home:

1. O little Town of Bethlehem

O little town of Bethlehem

How still we see thee lie

Above thy deep and dreamless sleep

The silent stars go by

Yet in thy dark streets shineth

The everlasting Light

The hopes and fears of all the years

Are met in thee tonight


For Christ is born of Mary

And gathered all above

While mortals sleep, the angels keep

Their watch of wondering love

O morning stars together

Proclaim the holy birth

And praises sing to God the King

And Peace to men on earth


2. Angels we have heard on high

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing o’er the plains,

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains.



Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!


Shepherds, why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heav’nly song?



Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Gloria, in excelsis Deo! (x2)


3. O Come Let Us Adore Him

O Come All Ye Faithful

Joyful and triumphant,

O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.

Come and behold Him,

Born the King of Angels;

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

Christ the Lord.


4. Jesus, My Friend 


He is my friend, a Man yet a God

He is my friend, a Servant yet a King.

Who stay with me every moment of my day

Whose love is lamp unto my feet

A light unto my path

Jesus, my friend, you are a friend to me.

In sadness, joy, you stay so close to me.

You poured your love.

And now I know you more.

Jesus, my Lord, my God, my friend.


Growth Groups

What's a Growth Group?

A Growth Group is a small group of people (usually no more than 12 people) who are committed to helping each other become all that God has created them to be. Most of the groups meet in homes throughout Richmond and Delta on different days of the week. They all follow a similar format.


The group gathers at an agreed upon time and begins with an informal time of fellowship around coffee and snacks.


Next they sing some songs together to praise God.


Following the worship time they dig into a study of the Bible. Most of the groups will study the theme and passages from the previous Sunday sermon. The main goal to apply what the Bible says. The main question will be, "How do we actually put into practice what God, in His Word, says to do?"


Finally they will pray for various needs that the group has and for those outside their group. They will pray for the church, that God would use it to bring His peace and hope to those outside its walls.
Groups will also have a ministry project that they choose to be a part of. These will vary depending on what the group is passionate about. It could be that a group will help to serve at a street mission, or help support a ministry to refugees, or encourage single mothers, or volunteer at a crisis center.
