And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation."- Mark 16:15
Verse of the Month:
“So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body."- Matthew 10:26-31
Our missions statement is to spread the powerful things that God has done around the community and to give hope to people no matter what they're dealing with.
This week's Story:
@SquirrelGirl1414 's story:
I've grown up in the church since I was 9 months old, and I have an awesome church family. However we have gone through a really rough period where we lost maybe 1/4 to one half of the congregation, so the student and youth ministry programs are really small. I started attending youth group at my friend's church, and last year (when I was going into 6th grade) we went to camp together. Luckily we were together, because it went by grade. We arrived on Sunday and left on Friday, but on Tuesday we discovered we had bedbugs. So two of our four counselors went to the laundromat in town and washed and dried everything in our cabin, while the rest of us re-grouped. Later that night we had a really powerful message about being the light of the world and afterwards everyone in our cabin cried their eyes out in the pavilion- we were a mess of emotions. Turned out that the bedbug situation brought us all together and closer to jesus which was great since we didn't all get along at first.
