Our congregation is dedicated to serving young people and their families. Our youth program provides a wide variety of activities for children of all ages with the purpose of helping students grow mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially, just as the Bible teaches that Jesus grew in Luke 2:52. It is our intent to help young people and families feel encouraged and equipped to live a life faithfully serving the Lord.

Our Youth Ministry is divided up into four natural dividing groups. Our Sparks (2nd grade and under) & Intermediates (3rd-5th), Junior High (6th-8th Grades), and our Senior High (9th-12th Grades). It is our goal with each group to provide specifically tailored classes, events, and opportunities for children to grow while placing importance on family, community, and discipleship.

IT IS REFRESHING TO TAKE TIME TO SLOW DOWNand take inventory of all the things you have to be thankful for. As I look back on a wonderful Thanksgiving week this past week filled with rest, family, turkey, and the beginning of our Christmas traditions for our family, I am reminded of important it is to slow down from time to time. I hope that you used your Thanksgiving time wisely and find yourself refreshed and renewed for the remainder of 2021.

FRIENDSGIVING WAS A GREAT SUCCESSfor our youth group, as over 50 students gathered at Camp Meribah to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal with each other. The night concluded with a great crowd in bible class and the writing of many thank-you notes to express our gratitude to others. A big thanks goes to Joey & Charlene Hunt for hosting, our friends at Fish Camp for providing a delicious meal, and all the ladies of our congregation that made the pies for us to enjoy.

LIGHTS ARE BEGINNING TO BEplaced on our Bus Garage in preparation for our Cookies With Santa Drive-Through on Friday, December 10th. Plans are in the works to take the momentum of a great event last year, and make this event even more successful this year! Our parking lot and Bus Garage will be transformed into a Christmas Wonderland, filled with lights and characters in costumes and of course, Santa himself! This event is from 5:00-7:00 pm. We are in need of lots of bagged Christmas cookies (2 per bag) for this event! It is going to be a great night for our young children!

HAVE YOU EVER MADE A BAD CHOICE? It is hard sometimes to know what the right thing to do in every situation. Whether at work, home, or elsewhere in life, our daily walk is filled with difficult choices. Our Heavenly Father gives us choices that have monumental consequences on our lives and it is up to us to choose what is right--integrity and character at home, at work, and in our walk with the Lord. There is nothing better than the joy and peace that come from obeying God. Resolve today to prayerfully seek God's wisdom and guidance regarding every choice that you face (Deuteronomy 30:19-20). Have a great week!

In Him, Carter
