For Youth Sunday, Youth Pastor Ian talks specifically on the importance of making disciples of the younger generation. In the Great Commission, Jesus calls us to go make disciples. Unlike the Pharisees, who talked the talk but didn’t walk the walk, Jesus never told his disciples to do something that He didn’t also do Himself (raise the dead, heal the sick, cast out demons). The way He mentored his disciples gave them the confidence to live out those tall orders of raising the dead, healing the sick, etc. It is our calling to not only tell our youth the way to go, but to show them with our day to day actions.
Youth leaders Nate and Dave take over preaching for Youth Sunday. Through the lives of David and Elijah, they challenge the church with the question “Is This the Best We Can Do?”
Matt and Deanna Kenyon, our Senior High Youth Leaders, preach a poignant message about Peter and taking risks. They delve into what the act of faith means and how God calls us to rely on Him over ourselves.
