Revival

Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? I don’t know what the word “REVIVAL” brings to mind for you. For some people it may bring to mind a very specific picture of a church event. This week I am at a youth minister’s retreat in Columbia,...

1 Corinthians 10:13

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. “My parents just don’t understand.”...

We are Excited

We have been talking in class, a few grades at a time, about what we would like the youth group to look like, and I thought I would share those with you all one at a time as well! We should be excited to be here! Psalm 122:1 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go...
