Weekly Youth Update: 4/06 - 4/12


The Homeland Park youth had an amazing week! We hosted our first 5-on-5 basketball tournament in partnership with Greater Love Bible Church! This was an extremely successful event as it allowed us to share the Gospel and build deeper relationships with members of our community. Due to logistics, we changed the format to a 3-on-3 to allow time for longer games and a deeper tournament. Some pictures are posted below showing some of the games, the winners, and some of the awards given.

Patrick Harrison, pastor of Greater Love Bible Church, opened the tournament with our devotional.

Thank you to all who helped this past week. We had many church members who offered their time to pull this event off! Our food committee stepped in and served us wonderfully. Several members kept a watchful eye and ran various side activities. Other members served beforehand by allowing us to make major steps in renovating our youth room by helping to take care of maintenance work and assemble some of our new furnishings! I am blown away by the love of our church body towards one another and to the community. Their love and service made it possible to create an environment where the Gospel could be proclaimed and relationships could begin and deepen! Thank you again!

This week, we will crank back right into Bible study! Join us Wednesday night, from 6:30-7:30 in the Loft of the Family Life Center! Anyone wanting to hang out beforehand may arrive at 6:00 when the Family Life Center opens. Invite your friends and family to come for an awesome time together!
