God really helped during Vacation Bible School, June 4-8. The altar was lined on Wednesday evening as young people accepted Jesus into their hearts. The final night of VBS a total of 72 teens were present. Over 85 teens were reached throughout the entire week.
We are excited about the opportunity to be able to minister with the Jordan Satterfield Family to the Native Americans in Little Eagle, South Dakota this summer! During our visit, we will be conducting a mini-youth camp, holding evangelist services and a host of work projects including putting a restroom in the church. We ask that in the days to come you would remember this missions trip in your prayers. Pray that somehow we can offer hope to the needy people of Little Eagle. Your prayers will make a difference!
GMYC is one of the highlights of the year for our young people. It’s an action packed week full of fun, friends and spiritual enrichment! For more information or to register visit www.godsmissionarychurch.org/gmyc. Our goal this year is to take 50 teens to GMYC. Pray that this week has a tremendous impact on our youth.
Vacation Bible School is right around the corner and is always a great time. Each night we will have special activities and sessions for the young people. Make plans to attend every night. It’s going to be a blast!
The Beavertown Youth Department has taken on the new name “Crossroads.” This name is rich in heritage as Beavertown God’s Missionary Church was first named Crossroads Church back in the early 1930′s when it first came into existence. Sitting on the corner of two roads, now named Covered Bridge Road and Creek Road, the church served as a Crossroads where many chose the right path and began to walk with God. It is our desire that our young people will follow the instruction of our motto and, “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”
The transformation of our old church into the “James Bates Youth Center” has begun.
We were privileged to have Patrolman David Shaffer come speak to our young people about the dangers of drugs and alcohol in Sunday School. The students especially enjoyed trying to pass the sobriety test while wearing the glasses that simulated having twice the legal limit of alcohol. Thanks David for a great job instructing the youth and for putting your life on the line to keep us safe! We are glad to have you part of our congregation!
