2021 THEME

The theme chosen for 2021 is Endurance. According to “Endurance” is defined as, “the ability or strength to continue or last, especially despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions; stamina:” After 2020, we have been tested and many of us are feeling tired, stressed, worn out, and fed-up. As we run the race of life, we understand all we can do to endure what life may throw at us is by building on what knowledge and experience we already have. The more knowledge and experience we have the easier it is for us to endure the challenges we face. This year will be a year of training to face unexpected hardships, of rest to be ready and energized to face the unknown, of support as we encourage and assist those around us to keep on keeping on despite challenges they may be dealing with, and for the wisdom to reach out for help so no one is left behind. If you are reading this, we ask you to join us in prayer for the students as they prepare to face what is ahead of them and that they face it inviting God to be by their side through it all.

The Minor Leagues: A Look at the Minor Prophets
Meets on Sunday mornings @ 9:30am in the Youth Room
When people speak of “the Twelve”, most would typically think of Jesus’ twelve disciples. But there is another group of twelve that is just as important to the story of God and His plans for the world: the twelve minor prophets. While they may not be as well known as other books in the bible, the minor prophets cover some major topics. Habakkuk cries out to God about why the wicked prosper and not the righteous. Obadiah teaches us the importance of taking responsibility for our actions. Micah speaks of a future Messiah born in Bethlehem. And Hosea teaches how God loves all, even the unfaithful. In this series, we’ll be walking through each of the twelve minor prophets, and discussing why they matter more than you might think
Dear Children: a study of 1, 2, and 3 John
Meets Wednesday nights @ 6:30 pm in the Youth Room
“I am writing to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of his name.” – 1 John 2:12.

This summer, we will be diving into the letters of 1, 2, and 3 John. Each of these letters covers a variety of topics, but they all focus in one one central point: love. As Christians, we are called to have selfless love for one another in a way that announces to the world that we are children of God.

The Youth LIFEGroup will resume in the fall on Sunday evenings at 6 pm. Each student will have 2 opportunities to co-lead the LIFEGroup lesson including song planning, finding scriptures, and leading the discussion of the lesson.
