Youth News

Hello everyone! We had a wonderful time at the Middle School Retreat up at Bonclarken last weekend. We had a total of 12 students go, that is a combined group from our church and the Bethany ARP Church. The Rev. Matt Kuiken did a fantastic job engaging our students and challenging them to grow in the Lord through the study of His Word and through being a part of His Church. 


The events that are coming up  for our youth are the Youth Christmas Party on December 4th! It is going to be a progressive dinner and we're going to do white elephant. Also our Appalachia Angel Tree is coming up! That is where we take Christmas gifts up to the children that we minister to during our Appalachia Mission trip. This is open for all students and their families. It is a time that we are able further share the love of Christ with these children and their families. It is a day trip on December 18th. Please if you have never attended make plans to attend! 


An emphasis for our youth next year is going to on service. One of the things that Rev. Kuiken challenged our students with was that we are to be people that serve both within and outside the church. We are going to be looking for ways to serve our church and community next year through helping with clean up days for the church, volunteering with Clover Area Assistance Center and other organizations such as that. I look forward to letting you know more about that in the coming months.


The Lord be with you all!


In Christ Alone,

Jonathan
