Middle School Ministry: Week of Dec. 14, 2020

Posted by on

Hey everyone!
The Christmas party was such a blast, thank you so much to those who were able to make it, bring gifts to exchange, and share treats with the group. We had such a fun time, I hope the party sets up the Christmas season for everyone!
This week is our last week to meet! We'll be at the Middle School Room from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. for a special youth group  because... get ready for it... I won't be there!
My good friends Elyse and Aubrey Stenholtz and Josiah Hooper, three high school students who I've been getting to know for many years, are going to take this opportunity to teach and lead the entire time! I'm so excited for them and for your students to be encouraged by their peers. They're going to be leading a discussion about our motives and the "do's and don't's" in the first chapter of James. And after this week we will be off until January 13th, have a Merry Christmas!
This year has had many ups and downs, we've taken everything that's happened in stride as best as possible. There are two parts of this year that have been the absolute highlights and joys of the year for me:
  • The extra time I've had to dive into Scripture and prayer to connect with Jesus in new ways,
  • and every minute I've had with your students in person and online to spur them on in their faith.

Thank you all for how you've navigated this year with me in the light of a constantly changing world, I'm looking forward to more time together in 2021.

Merry Christmas, everyone. I hope you all have a great time celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ in whichever way works best for you and your family. See you soon!
Student Ministries Director
