 St. John's Youth Group

Youth Group
As of Sunday, March 3rd, St. John's Youth Group will be joining with the First Christian Church Youth Group.  They will meet at the old Firehouse on the corner of Wabash and Main Streets from 4 - 5:30 p.m. 
Emily or I will meet our youth here at St. John's to go over together, and then at 4:30 (after confirmation here is over) one of us will come back and get those who need rides to the Firehouse.  For anyone needing rides home afterward,  we will gladly do that too.  Any questions please contact me by text, phone or message me on Facebook.
See You Guys on Sunday!  Judy Titus

All ages are welcome and you do not need to be a member of St. John's to attend.  I encourage you to invite your friends and lets share to word of God together. 

The National Youth Gathering
Coming up in 2019 is the next NYG.  You ask what NYG is, well it is the largest outreach event in our LCMS church body.  It takes place every 3 years and is set again for July 11-15, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN.  Any youth may attend, but you do have to be 14 at the start of the gathering.

Questions or comments about any or all of our youth and family programing, please let me know.
 
God so loved the world, so we shall love the world as God has first loved us.  Remember He loved it so much that He gave his one and only Son so that we might live with Him.  AMEN

Make sure that you get signed up
for up and coming events. 
And please remember that if you sign a friend up they also need to have a Registration form as well as their contact phone number not yours.  Please make sure that the info you write on the signup sheets is readable.   **For each event there is a 10 youth minimum, a fee and deadline for each.  Please make sure you are paying attention to the info.  Parents please help me with this.

Being Involved… in the church,
in the youth group
Ok here it is…  What does it mean to be involved?  Well just coming to the fun stuff and then not wanting to participate in church activities is not being involved.  The church and all that is involved in the church should be done as a group and not just a few people.  Matthew 28:19 is pretty clear on what our Lord wants us to do.  Now we are not very good at that on our own, so we need to be connected to each other and in the word each week.  So please, one and all, lets get to church, make Sunday school a top priority instead of rushing out to breakfast.  Get involved in a small group if there is not one for you, lets get together as a church and make one that works.  The Bible tells us in Hebrews 10:24-25 "And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."  Jesus loves us all… Amen

FAMILY FELLOWSHIP
Every Family Every Month…  What does that mean?  Ok here is what I am thinking, why are we as a church not reaching every family on our roles.  Well I as the youth leader have been doing a lot of praying and thinking of ways to reach out to our families and here is where you come in.  First we need people that are just willing to pray.  Ok here is the hard part!!  Need some leaders that are willing to step up and contact our families.  To connect in prayer and just see how life is going.  Our Lord as our back and now it is time to have each others back.  The church is a lot more that walls and pretty windows.  It is where we as the people of God come together to do His work.  Together we can meet each other right where we are and make a difference.  No age, gender, color, or even the devil can put a stop to God's plan in this place.  We live in a right side up world but that all changed when Jesus showed up and turned everything upside down.  And that is how He calls us to live.  I am going to be looking some willing people to work with our families, so please do not run when ya see me coming.  God where you lead I will go I will follow  you and know I am yours There is no place I would rather be than with you for all to see, I am yours.  This is my prayer for each one of us. AMEN
