“The Roadhouse” is an after-school ministry offered by People of Faith to high school students on Wednesdays after school. It was designed with West Orange High School students in mind, but students from any school are welcomed to join us. Students can expect to find a diverse group of students ready to welcome anyone who visits. You will usually find a football game going on outside, people playing ping pong, pool, or cornhole, and a number of people sitting around and talking or playing cards. You can also expect to be enthusiastically greeted and offered a hot dog and soda. While “The Roadhouse” is a ministry of the church, we work hard to make sure that all students feel welcome regardless of religious convictions. Above anything else, The Roadhouse is a safe place where students of any background, belief, race, gender or sexual orientation can come, have fun, and be embraced by a community of their peers.
The Roadhouse is also committed to helping students find a church community. We are happy, of course, to have students join us at People of Faith for worship. In addition, we have students from numerous churches and youth groups that attend. If People of Faith is not the right fit, we encourage students to find another faith community in the area and are committed to helping them in that.
Whether you are looking to explore questions of faith or just meet some new people, we hope you will join us at the Warrior Roadhouse. We are open from 1:15-5:00 on Wednesdays during the school year.
