YOUTH NEWSLETTER – December 11, 2017

Hello There!

Hope you are enjoying this Advent season!  It seems everywhere you look is a reminder of Christmas.  Let’s allow the decorations, the presents, and the music to remind us the greatest gift of all, our Savior Jesus!
This Sunday is the last day to give toward the LEGO project.  Instead of exchanging gifts as a youth group or giving gifts to me, we pool our money each year for a special mission.  This year we are raising funds for the LEGO project which was promoted by Ben Glenn, the chalk guy, at Rocky Mt. High.  This project helps purchase new LEGO sets for children in need.  His daughters helped him come up with this idea.  More info can be found here:  giveyourbricks.com
I’m excited to see the Christmas program come together!  Thanks for the energy and effort everyone has been putting in so far.  I’m praying for God to be glorified through this special service!
Love in Christ,
Maggie 🙂

YOUTH NEWSLETTER – November 14, 2017

Hello There!

Thanks again to all who helped pack Operation Christmas Child boxes on Sunday! What a fun time to serve together! I encourage you to also pack boxes with your families too. This mission is truly spreading the truth of God’s Word and transforming lives for Jesus!

Just a few reminders for the next couple of weeks. We will not be having The Hub this Wednesday due to the Harvest Supper at 6 PM or the following week due to the Thanksgiving Eve Service. We look forward to a regular Wednesday on Nov. 29.

This weekend we have the privilege of learning from an expert about some of the big questions we might have about science and the Bible. I hope you take advantage of this special opportunity to grow in your knowledge and ask tough questions that you might have. Bring along your friends and family!

In Christ,
Maggie 🙂

YOUTH NEWSLETTER – October 26, 2017

Hello There!

It felt good to be back at The Hub last night. It is always fun to dig into God’s Word together! Remember that 9th-12th graders are also invited to join in on Wednesdays at The Hub at 6 PM too. We’d love to have you join us!

This Sunday the 6th-12th grades will meet together again in the youth room. Pastor Tim has a meeting. Hope everyone enjoyed visiting with Rob Roozeboom last week. He has such a powerful testimony of trusting in God through life’s difficulties. Always great to hear stories of God working in powerful ways!

Two big events are coming up this month with the Operation Christmas Child packing day and the Science & the Bible weekend. Be sure to mark your calendars now!

In Christ,
Maggie 🙂

YOUTH NEWSLETTER – Oct. 1, 2017

Hello There!

I hope everyone is staying dry on this dreary rainy day! I have really enjoyed kicking off the youth ministry year again this past month. We have had great discussions at The Vine, The Hub, and had a great time worshiping at The 507 youth rally last week!

I wanted to let you know that I’ve been praying about what to do with Rooted (the high school outreach on Wednesdays at 7:10 PM). I haven’t had much response about it, so instead of having a separate high school program on Wednesdays, we are going to open up The Hub to high school students too. I know it will be difficult for those who are in basketball with late practices to join us, but I feel that this will be a better option for those who are currently looking for a way to connect on Wednesday nights.

Many youth groups in our community are for high school and middle schoolers together. I will try to split the group up at times for smaller group discussions by grades to help foster the age appropriateness of some topics though. Please pray for God to bless us as we transition to a wider age range at The Hub. We are just trying to follow God’s lead.

So again, high schoolers are welcome to join us at The Hub starting this Wednesday!

Love in Christ,
Maggie 🙂
