Senior EYC Off To A Great 2013!

After a much needed break from school our young people hit the ground running as they reconnected and renewed their commitment to each other. But first we all want to give our belated THANKS & GRATITUDE to the Wisenbakers for the wonderful Christmas Party they hosted for us! It was fun, delicious and a great way to start the holidays!

We started the new year focusing on real life situations and how to face them with God’s love, grace and wisdom. Random acts of kindness were discussed, and we discovered even something as little as a smile to someone can make a positive change for everybody! Paying it forward – as in paying for a stranger’s coffee in the drive thru – is a healthy practice we can all do that just multiplies. We also talked about relationships focusing on when to intervene and when to stay out of the mix, especially when friends are having a conflict. We came to the conclusion that sometimes there isn’t an easy answer to some situations and that is when we need really discern God’s will for us.

We celebrated Holly’s 18th birthday on the 16th and made plans for the ANNUAL SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKE SUPPER on Tuesday, February 12, from 6-7 p.m.! Mark your calendars for this yummy event! There is no service that evening – just the meal! Donations will be gladly and graciously accepted. Proceeds will go towards scholarships for our Youth for Honey Creek events such as Summer Camps, New Beginnings, Happening, Winter Blast, etc. These events have changed the lives of so many of our young people and they want to give back to the next generation!

Thank you for supporting our youth!

As always, we thank our Christ Church family for love, support and prayers!
