3 Reasons to come to Wednesday Night Church
It is no surprise that this school year is going to be a busy one! We have so much going on! Schoolwork. Sports. Friends. Family. Work. The list could go on and on. However there are 3 reasons why I think that every teenager should make a priority of coming to our Wednesday night Youth Group time from 6:30-8:00pm.
1. To increase your exposure to God's Word and God's people!
This world conspires against a relationship with God! It even wants to suggest to you that anything and everything is more important or on par with your Bible intake! On Wed. nights we will be jumping into the Word and examining different portions of the Bible. Plus, in our small group time, we will be able to remind one another of the most valuable and important truths that should govern our lives! Since we tend to forget (2 Pet. 1:9-15), it will be good to get together and help each other remember what we really love most!
2. To remember that life is not about me!
In our selfie-saturated world, it is good to come and be reminded about the mission of the church (Mtt. 28:18-20), and our need to walk with Jesus day by day! Come sing songs about the beauties of another world! Come get your heart poured into by loving group leaders, and other teens who want to walk with Jesus! Come not just to receive, but also to give to others. Pray, learn, and live the Gospel with each other. Reach out to some teen who may just need an encouraging word! Even bring someone who does not know Jesus and lets pray together that God will rescue them from sin and death.
3. To increase your passion for Jesus and His glory!
He is what its all about! Jesus is better than anything else! Seriously, don't be fooled by how you feel, or how others tell you to think! Jesus Christ stands taller than any other! His love is deeper than any other! His joy is more full than any temporal pleasure! As you sing about Him, learn about Him, and discuss how He is changing your life, you will grow to love him more and more!
While there may be other things you could do this fall, consider making your attendance at Youth Group a priority! Who knows what life change may be in store for you!!
