“We must not love with word or speech, but with truth and action.” (1 John 3:18) John provides the essence of a life on mission; it’s the calling for all followers of Christ. Sculpted in God’s image, we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to boldly share the gospel so that others will know His love. No matter where we are or what our stage of life may be, God is calling us to be His advocates through praying, giving and going. With over 269 million people in North America who do not know Jesus Christ, we must urgently pursue God’s plan to be on mission here and now. Our prayers and support make it possible for the North American Mission Board (NAMB) to train, resource & send more than 5000 missionaries who share the good news of Christ. They are putting John’s words into action with our help. Prayer guides for Week of Prayer, March 4-11 & offering envelopes will be available throughout this month.

During my time at this church, I have noticed a passionate heart for the young people here and in our community. One place this passion was most evident was in the lives of Pastor
John and Shirley. They both made great sacrifices for these students, many that went unseen, and their involvement in the lives of these students has had a great impact. I pray this passion that they helped instill will always be characteristic of this church. As we move forward, it will take many to fill their shoes. For the student ministry to continue to be successful, it will take an entire church that is passionate about teaching these students what it means to have a relationship with God and how to grow that relationship. This does not mean each person must work directly with students but that the body as a whole will make an intentional effort to care for these students. This can happen in a variety of ways such as: Taking time to talk to them, taking time to listen them, encouraging them, making an effort to include them and, most importantly, praying for them. I know that a lot of these things many of you already do, so thank you and keep up the good work. On another note, in the upcoming months, we have several student activities in the works. However, we are still working through many of the dates and details so I will pass them along as soon as possible.

VBS 2018 INTRODUCTION MEETING: Join us Sunday, January 21 following morning worship for our 2018 VBS introduction meeting. Anyone who is interested in helping is encouraged to attend. This year’s theme is GAME ON! It’s so much more than a sports theme. It’s about meeting people where they are (whether they are fans, band members, or athletes) and equipping them for life-the BIG GAME! It’s about discovering who we are In Jesus Christ, trusting him as Savior and Lord, celebrating our salvation and turning to the ultimate playbook- Gods Word! We are so excited about VBS this summer and hope you are too!

Well, it has been a busy month for us here in the student ministry. This month has been filled with some really neat opportunities to see the students serving. One Sunday after
church, we took a large group of them to a couple of nursing homes in Navasota. We had the opportunity to sing Christmas carols with some of the residents and then give them the cards we had made for them. It was really awesome to see the students not only participating but doing it gladly and with enthusiasm. Several of our students also participated in the church Christmas program and, once again, they did it with joy and enthusiasm. Seeing the student’s enthusiasm was a great blessing because, as you probably know, this is not always the response you get out of teenagers from these types of activities. We also had a Christmas party with an ugly sweater contest and a white elephant gift exchange. I thank all of you who have taken the time to pray for and invest in the lives of these students. Please continue to pray for the spiritual growth of the students and that God will give me wisdom on how to facilitate this growth.
