Praise the Lord for a great month during February!
We are excited to see God work in the lives of so many young people at Chapel By The Sea Baptist Church. With AWANA in full swing and Children’s church growing, my heart is encouraged by those that are growing in the Lord. We are continuing to average 20 young people each week, and AWANA is averaging 14 – 16 on Saturday!
This past weekend, the memory verse was 2 Timothy 2:15; a difficult verse for many adults: however, ever young person that attended was able to say it! A young man that stands out among the others with great potential is a 9 year old named Johnny! He said not only this weeks, but the two previous verses from weeks before. Johnny always leads by example and is proving to be a leader among his peers. I would ask that you would pray that God will continue to work in Johnny’s heart, and that He would make a preacher boy out of him!
We are in the process of planning our Summer activities. I have had the opportunity to speak to a group that does three day retreats in the mountains of North Carolina, a local horse stable outfit for beach rides, an “Explore Dive” place, and many other possibilities. Included with our summer events possibilities is a three day Camp for teenagers in Alpharetta, GA called the O.G. Camp. The camp is designed to introduce and teach teenagers to have a heart and burden for world missions! Please pray that God would supply the needs to take some teenagers to this camp.
It is our hearts’ desire to see the Lord move in a mighty way within our young people, our church, and our community this year! I believe that the time invested and spent this summer can and will pave the way for many young people to be saved, taught, trained, and sent into all the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
If you would like to get involved, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! We welcome anyone that has a heart to serve!
