our programs

The Post seeks to be a common hangout for kids from all kinds of backgrounds, beliefs, and interests. Most of our time kids are free to hang out in the common areas, get snacks from the cafe, or play ball on the basketball court. However, for most of our open days, we try to incorporate programs to help the kids connect to our leadership and form an identity in Christ as well as develop positive skills and habits.

Check out our programs below for some details on what we offer. Feel free to stop by to observe or help out with any of our programs. If you would like to volunteer, contact us here or stop by to fill out an application and chat with our director.

the post's daily program schedule

Monday – I Am Second – 6:30 – 7:00 PM

“I Am Second” is a movement meant to inspire people of all kinds to live for God and for others. We aspire to live with God first, and our own desires second. Each Monday we meet to encourage our students to think about their relationship with Christ and evaluate their purpose in life. Have you discovered yours?

Tuesday – Community Garden @ 8th Street Mennonite Church- 6:00 – 6:30 PM

Thanks to a local farmer and church goer, we have been invited to grow a plot of vegetables on 8th street! We go each week to pull weeds, take care of the plants, and learn how to harvest and enjoy the fruits of our labor! Currently growing: corn, beans, tomatoes, and many types of peppers! Come get dirty with us!

1st & 3rd Wednesday- Real Q & A with Chris – 7:00 PM

Do you have questions?? Chris Williams is a local Christian rap artist and recording label who brings his Bible knowledge into The Post by allowing the teens to ask questions that are on their mind. The sky is the limit with the topics discussed, and it is a safe place to listen to others and seek answers based on truth. 
 

2nd & 4th Wednesday- Mind, Body, & Heart 6:30 – 7:00 PM

 

Join us for activities that are focused on our mental health and how we can be the best version of ourselves. In partnership with Oaklawn, we hope this provides space for teens to explore self-care, conflict resolution, and setting healthy boundaries. 
 
Thursday- Teens can engage in a variety of recreational, educational, and life-skill-based activities such as creative arts projects, cooking classes, sports, socialization with others, movie nights, homework help, and so much more! We hope to create space each evening during the week for our students to feel comfortable and united under our roof where they can learn new skills or enjoy activities they already love to do!
 
Friday- Outings! 

Friday outings include swimming, bonfires, baseball games, visiting local parks, ice cream runs, church services, First Fridays, and other community events. We provide these outings for the teens to have positive experiences in the community and to give them opportunities to participate in activities they may not have been able to otherwise. Check out our social media on Instagram & Facebook for a schedule and time announcements for these outings.
