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.

Looking forward. Here is  the scheduled youth activities through the month of October. Nothing is concrete but it’s more than just tentative. I’m more or less flooding the calendar to provide more opportunities for the youth to get plugged into church activities amidst their busy schedules.

PATHFINDERS -YOUTH CORNER

Hey, Hey, Hey, there is a Pathfinders meeting Sunday, July 23rd.  After a brief time of sharing, we will watch the movie, "God's Not Dead", a faith based story about a High School students standing up for what he believes, his faith in God. We will be serving popcorn and sodas.  Friends are always welcome.  See you at 5:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall.

The Pathfinders activities schedule is packed full of outdoor adventure that may challenge your comfort level along with meaningful movies and message nights.  For a big picture look at Pathfinders activity schedule, check the church web site at fpcpa.org or there is a posted schedule at the Connection Center.

 

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.
