Weekly Youth Update: 3/24 - 3/30

Last week, we wrapped up our Questions Bible study series with a recap lesson and time for students to share what they learned, their praises, and their prayer requests. We were really encouraged by the students’ willingness to open up and let others into their lives. Our prayer is to see this become a common occurrence as we grow closer to the Lord together!

Wednesday night, we have “March Madness” with Varennes Heights Baptist Church. This is a follow up event to our original time together at the beginning of March. We will have various basketball games and contests, four-square, and other opportunities for fellowship and fun. Our time together will last from 6-8 in the Family Life Center. Invite family and friends to come and we hope to see you there!

Next Wednesday night, April 2, my friend Brock Bass will be teaching our weekly youth Bible study! We will meet together at our normal time, 6:30-7:30 in the Family Life Center. Doors open at 6:00 for anyone wanting to hang out!

Saturday, April 5, the youth will go a hike to the Oconee Station State Historic Site! We will meet and leave from the church at 9 am and arrive back around 2 pm. Please bring your own lunch, a bottle of water, and $2 to help cover gas. We are looking forward to spending the day fellowshipping with one another and enjoying God’s glorious creation!

Finally, the big summer youth retreat is coming up! We are going to Wilmington and staying at Pine Valley Baptist Church from June 26-29! More details are coming soon!

If you have any questions, please email me at!

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
