GTS - which stands for growth through service: It is our mission to help the youth connect with Christ in a meaningful and memorable way. This is why our Youth Ministry has been built around the concept of serving. When we serve others, we have an opportunity to show God's mercy, grace, and kindness. It is in service that God shows up and transforms our lives as well.
Youth Group on Thursday: Every Thursday at 6 p.m. we will be having Youth Group using Google Meets. Please email Kristen Theile to sign up at email@example.com. We will continue to meet online rather than in person. As stated by our pastors, "This is a matter of public safety and health. We closed the doors in an abundance of caution even before the state of Nevada made any decision to limit the size of gatherings." Other churches who have tried to re-open have been forced to close their doors again. "We do not want to find ourselves in the same situation nor do we want to potentially put anyone at risk."
LA MISSION TRIP (VIRTUALLY) We had a wonderful virtual LA Mission trip where we focused on transformation. Our theme verse was Romans 12:2. Transformation is challenging, takes time, and sometimes we don't always get the end result we want but we have a God who walks along side us calling us, transforming us, and redeeming us!
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. - Romans 12:2
On our virtual mission trip youth did service projects and transformation projects. They designed and decorated quilt squares to be made into quilts for teens experiencing homelessness. They made sunshine cards for seniors as a way to share God's love, light, and hope with others. They raised money and change to donate for people affected by COVID. We give THANKS for our youth and leaders who serve others and have their faith and lives transformed!
