WE HAVE A GROWING YOUTH GROUP.

Y E A !

Last week's attendance at our youth group was 12 and

the group made the decision to meet weekly

instead of every other week. Adults can participate, please,

by bringing food and spending a few minutes greeting the

kids and learning their names.

 

The group meets on Tuesday nights from 6:30 to 8:00 in the

back room of the chapel. The focus for the coming eight

weeks is “Noticing God More,” a resource from Sticky

Faith Every Day by the Fuller Youth Institute.

Sticky Faith was the prequel to Growing Young.

 

The summer mission trip is June 23-29 to Springfield, MO

where our group will join over 300 teens mobilizing

to serve in different ways.

 

Camp dates are:

June 16-22 for those completing grades 9-12

June 16-22 for those completing grade 8

July 7-13 for those completing grades 5-7

June 25-29 for those completing grades 2-4

Family Camp is May 24-26

 

Cheers and Prayers for those who love on children and teenagers through the family life ministry of FCC.

Reflection in the Season of Lent

Jesus foretold both his death on the cross and his ultimate triumph.

He knew he would be rejected and put to death, but he also knew that would not be the end. After rejection would come glory – the glory of his resurrection from the grave and his ascension to the right hand of the Father in heaven.

 

From St. Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, the ancient name of the modern city of Annaba, in Algeria. He lived from 354-430 A.D.

“Unless the Word of God had first assumed our mortal flesh He could not have died for us. Only in that way was the immortal God able to die and to give life to mortal humans. Therefore, by this double sharing He brought about a wonderful exchange. We made death possible for Him, and He made life possible for us.”

 

Prayer

“Thank you, Lord Jesus Christ, for all the benefits which you have given us – for all the pains and insults which you have borne for us. O most merciful redeemer, friend, and brother, may we know you more clearly, love you more dearly, and follow you more nearly, for you own sake.”

-prayer of St. Richard, Bishop of Chichester Cathedral, England, 14th Century.
