2019–2020 Theme

gems-2016-love-overflows-sully-crc

The theme is LOVED. (Period)   I John 3:1  ” See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!  And that is what we are!”
 
Our greatest desire is to be loved(Proverbs 19:22).  No matter who you are or where you are in your story, we share the same insatiable desire.  We desire love.  We need to know that we are loved and seen.  That we matter!  If we miss the glorious truth that we are fully and unconditionally loved by Jesus, we’ll hold our emptiness up to something or someone else to fill us.  But, if we discover that our identity comes from who God says we are, instead of who we tell ourselves to be (looks, feelings, possessions, popularity, performance), then we can bring hope to girls and women who put question marks where God places a period.  When we understand who we really are then we can love LOVED. Period!!!

2019-2020 Theme

cadet-2016-theme-get-in-the-game

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Hebrews 12:1–2

Paul often uses competition as an allegory for life, and the author of Hebrews does the same here. When it comes to a life of serving God, we are participants, not spectators.

412 Youth Group

Teenagers in grades 9 to 12 are invited to join our young people’s group. This group meets weekly on Wednesday nights, from 7:00-9:00. At these meetings, the teens and their leaders discuss issues of the day in the light of God’s Word. They aslo plan social activities, outings and service projects.

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

I Timothy 4:12

Community

 

The journey of COVID has become long and wearisome for all of us and as a Council we continue to pray for discernment and wisdom as we seek to provide appropriate leadership through this time.

  1. As we gather in worship, all members above the age of two are strongly encouraged to wear a mask throughout the worship service.
  2. All participants at all other indoor church related functions including Sunday School, Catechism, Wednesday evening activities, church groups and other events associated with the church are asked to wear a mask while participating in these events and activities.
  3. If an event involves the consumption of food the masks can be removed as the food is consumed but should be worn at all other times.
  4. To the extent possible social distancing is encouraged at all church activities and efforts to limit group sizes are also encouraged.

These guidelines will remain in effect through November 30 and further reviewed at that time.
