What a week we’ve had in the youth ministry at Morningside. We’ve kicked off a great new year in Sunday School, we’ve started our Fall season of discipleship groups and we’ve started a new worship service for students on Wednesday nights. In fact, we had over 50 attend the first service last week. As I look back at this wonderful week of ministry I cannot help but be thankful for two things:
First of all, we serve an awesome God. As we’re in the midst of a study about the truth about God and absolute Truth, I’m time and time again blown away by how good God is to us. Even at our worst hour he is there. But in these last few days of great things at Morningside, he’s good too. I love serving Him and I love seeing our students serve and honor him too. May God not only receive all the glory for what happens at Morningside, but may He also have the hearts of us all.
Secondly, I am very thankful for great volunteers. We have over 25 adult leaders plugged in weekly and focused on reaching students for Christ. I love their passion and enthusiasm for students and their tireless efforts at keeping up with the lives of the students that God has entrusted to our care. Most youth ministries have great adult volunteers, but I am really becoming encouraged lately at how much some of our older youth and college students have stepped up in their leadership to begin helping lead out in the youth ministry. Specifically, I love how ten of our students are helping lead our new Ignite worship service on Wednesday nights.
Thank you volunteers for serving with us at Morningside. It’s been a great week and I can’t wait to see what God is going to do with us this school year if week keep our focus soley on Him! See you at Ignite this Wednesday.
