Wow, what a difference a few months can make! Almost out of the blue, our youth ministry has exploded…and God is doing something rather remarkable with them right now.
It started in the new year, with a Sunday morning Bible Study called Crazy Love, led by Julie and Christine. Our 4-5 regulars got into some rather intense seeking, which led to a weekend youth retreat where they brought about a dozen of their friends. God “showed up” there as well, and some really neat connections were made with a whole new group of young people. The momentum continued with the next big gathering, a “Soul Surfer” outreach event to kick off Spring Break. Close to 50 kids gathered for a fun celebration…but more importantly, over 20 of them have signed up to attend a 5 week follow up Bible Study on Wednesday nights.
Where this is going, only God knows. But, how exciting it is to see when God gets ahold of hearts. He clearly is doing something special with our young people these days, and I can’t wait to see where it goes next!
So, youth, let’s keep it up with the 5 week “Soul Surfer” Bible Study. It starts on Wed. March 21 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Bridgeland Activity Center. Be there. Bring a friend. And let’s see what God is going to do!
