YOUTH GROUP

MISSION STATEMENT

The youth today are being bombarded with overwhelming displays of non-Christian ethics, degrading morality, and challenges we as adults never dealt with as youths. We believe it is more important than ever that our youths get to know God and develop that central focus on Him. Christ needs to be our focus, just as Peter who, when he took his eyes off Jesus, sank in the water when he stepped out of the boat. We believe that we need to nurture our youth to seek God first, and then His righteousness will be freely given. This is our calling, a mutual journey in faith.
The plan is to help our youth connect with God in a deeper and stronger way through scripture, faith building activities, team building games and song. Please partner with me in this important ministry by helping your children find the time and encouraging them to attend. Growing in God leads to an abundant life, which is God's promise. Join us in the journey! Rick Leffler, Youth Director.

PATHFINDERS -YOUTH CORNER
Well, since the beginning of the new year our youth have been quite busy with trips to the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society. Consistently every other week with between 3 and 5 youth each time. Our youth are very much appreciated and accepted by the staff enabling us to do more as volunteers. Thanks to all the parents who support their children in this Christ-serving mission. Last month’s adventure activity took us up to Hurricane Ridge for an afternoon of snowshoeing. Thank you to Dan and Carrie Cobb for the second vehicle to help with transportation to the ridge and especially to Dan for his ingenuity in a wilderness fix of Amy Miller’s snowshoe binding. Awesome work. The two attached pictures might bring our activities a little more to light as to the fun and enjoyment we all have together.

This month our field trip is to the Coast Guard Base. This visit will get us tours on board the CGC Active, CGC Cuttyhunk, one of the 87 ft Patrol boats and a smaller 45 ft rapid response boat as well as a helicopter is one is available. This will be a must go adventure trip. Plan on March 18th and once again our departure time would be at 10:00 am, just after a short devotional in the perspective Sunday school classrooms. Watch for a postcard with more details. Thanks Rick Leffler

Ministry Rocks

Just wanting to briefly share with you a new and exciting activity that our youth group is engaged in. Last week at our monthly meeting, we began painting what we are calling, “Ministry Rocks”. Flat rocks of varying sizes colorfully painted with a spiritual message or Bible verse on one side and on the other side the youth groups name. Once we have painted around 30 rocks or so, we will go out and place them around town. The rocks are later found by others walking around and hopefully and prayerfully bring that person some spiritual uplift. Remember “It only takes a spark to get a fire going.”  If you don’t know the rest of that song, we can teach you.
