Weekly Youth Update: 8/26-9/1

This past week, we had some new faces for our weekly Bible study and we served plenty of families at our Fall Out of Summer Spectacular. God’s faithfulness has been clearly seen as our church is starting to reach more families and youth.

Wednesday night, we will be meeting at the church at 6:00 to leave for New Prospect Baptist Church’s “Back to School Rally.” This will replace our weekly Bible study. We should arrive back just after 8:15 and make sure to bring $2 for pizza. Providence Praise Band will lead the worship service and Kris Scott from C3 Church in Anderson will be giving the message. Please join us and other Anderson area youth ministries for this night of fellowship, worship, and fun!

Next Wednesday, September 4th, we will start our new fall study series, Christian Basics. We will be studying the basics of Christianity in order to better worship God, grow as believers, and communicate our faith to a dying, sinful world so they too might be worshipers of God. The Family Life Center will open at 6:00 for anyone who wants to play basketball or have fun outside. Bible study will begin at 6:30 and end just before 7:30.

Finally, on Saturday, September 7th, Elizabeth and I will be hosting the youth at our apartment to watch the Georgia-South Carolina football game from 4:00-7:30. Kickoff is at 4:30. We will have pizza and snacks for food and games for anyone not interested in watching football. The game should be over by 7:15. If you are unable to come for the entire time, feel free to drop by during the game. My email will be below if you need my address and directions.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at!

We’re looking forward to a great week!

Confession, Reflection and The Lord's Supper

Yesterday, our church observed the ordinance of the Lord''s Supper or Communion as some call it.  Our church is blessed to have a committee that prepares this for us on every fifth Sunday.  This practice is designed to take us back in our hearts and minds to that dreadful night where Jesus sat at a table with His disciples to prepare them for His pending crucifixion .   The purpose of the Lord's Supper is not for us to go through the motions, but to remember all that Christ did for us.  His body was broken and blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins.  Communion is a time to reflect, appreciate and give honor to Jesus for what He endured for us. This ordinance is not for everyone.  This is only to be taken by those who are believers and accepted Jesus as their ultimate forgiver and leader.  To partake in this service in an unworthy state is sin. 1 Corinthians 11:27 (NLT) 27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of s
