Youth Night Fridays 6:30PM
"If God is loving, why do bad things happen?"
"What happens to people who don't believe in God because they never heard about Him?"
"Someone told me that the whole world will be destroyed and then made again. Is that true?"
Their questions (and more) tumbled over each other. Many students were leaning forward, hopeful that they could get answers or that they could help someone find some. A night of earnest, if not hectic study and discussion. Study and discussion like this is an increasing focus on Friday nights at 6:30 with the Cross Culture Student Ministry.
Teenagers ask questions. Fact! Deeper, more abstract questions are surfacing. The process of seeking and finding answers is pivotal to claiming faith that is personal. Known. This quest leads eager minds to ask WHY you believe what you believe. Whether you come from a Christian background or not, the search for meaning, truth, and stability in a seemingly unstable world is a journey every person sets foot on. You're not alone.
We take this journey seriously. We believe that Jesus is "the Way, the Truth, and the Life." We believe that it is the healthy "fear of the LORD" that is the beginning of wisdom. We believe there is a reason that every generation seeks truth to found the rest of their lives on. Jesus said that we are to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded them." People matter. Truth is real. Faith is real. Let's walk together on this journey.
The Cross Culture Student Ministry meets at the church weekly on Friday nights at 6:30. We play games, sing songs, study the Scriptures, and often have something to snack on! If you're a parent with questions about the ministry or what it might look like for your teen (6-12th grade) to attend, or if you're a student with questions or seeking people who are willing to search out answers, feel free to reach out!
May God guide you to deeper faith and firmer ground.
