April 2019

Well I don’t know about you all, but for me it seems that as the new year started, we blinked and Easter is now already upon us! Looking back, the Youth have done much since the year started, from attending Winterspree youth conference, weekly Bible studies, to attending the Winterjam concert, and all kinds of stuff in between. As we grow in our relationships with one another and with God, I have found that the Youth are teaching me just as much as I am teaching them, and it is my genuine honor to have the ability to lead them. I pray that we will continue to develop our spirituality and take our faith to new levels with each passing week, and that we will continually grow in our relationships with one another. We have examined some of the primary issues found in teens daily lives, and found ways that the Gospel of Christ can intercede in these issues and bring reconciliation. We have had Q&A nights, addressing a wide array of topics that the Youth had questions about, and have been able to work through them together in the lens of Christ. Looking ahead, we will be examining some practical and effective ways to grow in our faith, specifically through spiritual disciplines such as prayer, service, confession, and more. As we approach Easter, I sincerely thank the Church for all you have done to support our Youth. Our ministry is impossible with-out you, and you all are in our prayers! Love and blessings, Christian

You are welcome to put more than the numeric value that is marked, but please ensure that your donation is at least equivalent to the marked value.
