Youth Ministry Update From Jonathan Goolsbee

Last week, Jonathan Goolsbee our Director of Youth Ministry had the opportunity to attend the Youth Pastor Summit in Orlando, Florida along with several other Youth Pastors in and around Fayette County. These leaders used this time in prayer and discussion over our local youth, schools, and community.
 
At the conference, they also heard from several speakers who shared the importance of being  intentional with programming and events.  One of the main takeaways for Jonathan was from Levi Lusko a pastor at Fresh Life Church. Jonathan relates Levi’s comparison of a male lion to our relationship with Christ. “Male lions hunt on their own at 11 months old and leave the pride at 2 years old. Up until that time, they eat constantly to increase their size so that their chance of survival also increases. Basically, you have to eat big to be big.  We have to also eat big to be big in our faith walk. In order to grow in our faith and relationship with our Savior, we must continue to spend time with Him, letting Him in and taking Him in.” Jonathan prays that each of us are making time to take in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Thrive Children Led Palm Sunday Worship At Evergreen Church

This past Sunday many Christians gathered in churches around the world to start Holy Week by celebrating Palm Sunday, and pausing to reflect how Christ gave His life in love for the world. This year, Evergreen Church celebrated through our children leading worship.
 
From the moment you stepped into the church, you were greeted by the smiling faces of our kids. These smiling faces continued to lead us in worship through the preschool handbell choir, the children’s handchime choir, and the contemporary choirOur preschoolers recited their memory verse through both dancing and signing. The Thrive Kids also shared the opening announcements, Prayer of Confession, Assurance of Pardon, and Tithes & Offerings. After the service, we joined together as a church to participate in our weekly missional challenge, broke bread together through our potluck luncheon, and ended the day with an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. This past Sunday was truly a joyous Sunday full of cross-generational fellowship.
