It has been an interesting time in our youth ministry as of late. A good time, a difficult time, a fun time and everything in between. Last month we talked about the writers of the Psalms and hymns, pulling God’s truth and lessons on perseverance from the lines of their songs. It is always encouraging to look back on the rich history of Christians and see the trials they persevered through. God was and is faithful!
This month has been bittersweet. Mike and Jessica Garrison have moved on up to Oregon in order to be closer to Mike’s job as a fireman. This move is great for them but leaves us with a hole in our youth staff and our circle friends. Please be praying for Mike and Jessica as they settle into their new place and get plugged into a local church, which I am told they may have already found!!
Gabe Edmondson, who has been gone at YWAM Montana for 3 months, started his three month outreach in Cambodia on March 16. Please be praying for him for strength, health and success in ministering the Gospel of God to all those he comes in contact with.
In the months to come we are delving into the world of Christian music, opening our students up to different styles of music and the message of God within music.
Due to the gradual depletion of youth staff, from ten to four, we are looking for college or parent volunteers to help out on Thursday nights. This does not need to be a commitment for youth events or fundraisers, strictly someone who is willing to be there on Thursday nights to pour love into teenagers and build relationships. If you are interested, please speak to me about this. I will be talking to people about this over the next few weeks. Please be praying about the possibility of volunteering. The youth are the future of this church and are in desperate need of people actively loving on them. Thank you for your consideration.
