Weekly Youth Update: 7/20-7/26

Last week, our Wednesday night Bible study focused on what it meant to be truly united with Jesus from Matthew 12:46-50. We discussed that belonging to Jesus begins through turning from sin and trusting in His life, death, and resurrection for salvation. The evidence that we belong to Him is a that our hearts our changed and we desire to please and worship Him in our daily lives. This was a great reminder for us about basic foundations in our relationship with Jesus!

This week, we are moving are meeting time on Wednesday night outside for a night of fun and messiness! Wear clothes that can get wet and messy and bring a towel and a change of clothes! We will meet Wednesday night from 6:30-7:30 in the Family Life Center. See you there!

Our Six Flags trip is this Saturday, July 25! Attending students must have both the medical and permission forms signed, completed, and returned on Wednesday, July 22. Also on Wednesday, we have our student/parent meeting for the trip at 5:30 in the Family Life Center.

On Saturday, students must arrive at 7:00 am so we can live by 7:30. We will return back to Anderson around 4:30 and we plan to arrive back by 7:15.

This Sunday, Homeland Park Baptist Church concludes Sunday Nights Alive Praise with a finger food night in the fellowship hall. The youth will join the rest of the church body in fellowship, praise, and food from 6:00-7:00! We will see you there!
