Youth Happenings:


November 2018

The youth have been busy! In July, we traveled to Darien Lake, NY for Kingdom Bound, where we experienced meaningful worship, an inspiring speaker, and a great show put on by TobyMac and Diverse City. August brought the youth kick-off party at our house. Pizza was eaten, cornhole was dominated by a certain kid, and parents came to meet with me.

Since then, the youth have participated in a variety of activities: Prayer Walk, learning about the UMCOR Mission Barn, regular meetings, and our Halloween Party on 10/21. You may not know this, but our youth have a heart for service and are particularly gifted at showing God’s love in this way. We spent September and October in youth group studying Micah 6:8, “…And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

During youth breakfast, besides eating (and drinking the hot chocolate that continues to find its way to us—thank you!) we have been discussing beliefs. It’s essential to know what one believes in order to share one’s faith, but sometimes, that knowledge can be found by learning about other beliefs and comparing/contrasting with Scripture. Right now, we’re delving into relativism, which can also be described as “whatever,” as in, whatever you believe and want to do is fine and good for you and who am I to say what’s right? It’s pretty awesome—this thirst for knowledge and growing faith that I see!

As a reminder, Youth Group is Sunday from 6:30-8:00 in the youth room (downstairs to the right), unless otherwise mentioned. Youth Breakfast is Sunday mornings 9:15ish to 10:15ish (I’m here around 9—we don’t really get talking until 9:30.) If you’re a youth 6th-12th grade, feel free to join us any time! Our door is always open

PS: Thank you to all of you who have given of your time for the youth. We pray for you and are grateful for you.
