WINTER ENCOUNTER 2020!
The Launch of TEEN M@TteRs
(Teens Meet @ The Restaurant)
Teen M@TteRs is our newly launched youth group. We have begun with the mission of reaching teens with the most pertinent message that they matter to God, they matter to us, their matters are important, and they matter to their communities. We have designed bi-monthly gatherings where we meet to fellowship and learn more of our purpose in God's Kingdom and we meet a second time to serve our communities.
"You see that his (Abraham's) faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did."
It is our heart's desire that our teens find their value and the fullness of their faith by living out the work God has for them. With this in mind, our first service project was a Chunky Soup Drive to benefit the Maxfield Community Food Pantry in Lake Luzerne. Our teens came through in shining colors gathering 340 cans of soup! What a blessing to our community!
Our teen gatherings each month have brought in 25-45 teens! Even our wonderful camp counselors show up when they have college breaks. We have shared meals, watched movies, enjoyed our wonderful grounds with sledding and campfires, played games, and heard the Word of God. The message we hope to instill in the hearts of these teens is that God has designed them uniquely with divine purpose and that their lives will be lived well as they know and follow the will of their good Creator.
