Youth Ministry Announcements
-Saturday Night Fellowship. This weekend, come out for SNF at 6pm as our youth director, Josiah (that's me!), gives a message on "Lethal Language" - how our words may bring life or death in our gossip, slander, or affirmation. SNF always starts with dinner and is a great way for youth and non-youth to bond as a family of God. After dinner, there are ice-breakers/games, and praise, teaching, and small groups. SNF is the best way for our youth to find community. Meetings end by 9pm! Come out and bring a couple friends who haven’t been out in a while.
Pray for our pastoral intern, Josiah, as he oversees our youth ministry. If you have questions about SNF or our youth ministry, or if you want to provide a meal, or if you need a ride or can provide a ride, talk to Josiah or any of our youth leaders and please keep our youth ministry staff in prayer.
-Prayer and Praise Night. On June 22nd, our youth ministry will have a praise and prayer night from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (dinner included!). Harvest is welcome to attend to receive from God and to exalt and praise His name together with our youth ministry. Please contact Josiah if you have any questions and if you'd like to come!
