Youth CREW Ministry
Youth ministry is ages from 7th grade to 12th. We meet on Wednesday evenings. First and third Wed are confirmation classes. Second and fourth Wed are CREW (Christ Reigns Everyone Wins).
The months that have 5 Wed, we meet at the Cuyuna Range Youth Center, uptown Crosby, with our families. On those occasions we will have a small meal provided and enjoy the facilities basketball/volleyball court, pool table , Leggo wall, etc.
The youth were blessed with new Bibles of their own this year and are getting pretty proficient in looking up Scripture! Which is a main goal of ministry, God’s Word!
Whew, what a trip! We had a very good time at the 3 Bears resort this weekend:)
Chris Dahl was a great speaker and was very encouraging to our youth as to their identity in Christ.
The musicians that performed, took the time to share their testimonials of their faith in the Lord. Also, they shared their views of the im-portance of God’s Word, staying on a good path and family worship.
We also attended 4 “breakout sessions”, which were like classes kinda.
Some of the things that were taught:
* about a Catholic charities warming shelters. How they strive to help us understand more about homeless people.
*that there are many things that come to mind when we hear the words “praise” and “worship”.
*how behind the scenes of being a musician can be lonely, frustrating and depressing.
I attended a separate session that focused on human trafficking. How devastating an epidemic that is real and close to home. Children ages 10- are particularly vulnerable and should be protected by proactive behavior because they are not being just “snatched off the streets”, they are being recruited through coercion, fraud and manipulation.
I spoke with the representative of an organization that is determined to save these children. I have invited them to our community to help raise awareness, “red flags” to watch for and how to keep our children safe.
Our God is mighty to save!
We are so blessed to be part of solutions instead of problems! Time to learn more of how we can share the fruit of the Spirit with our neighbors, our community and the world.
Heavenly Father’s love, peace and mercy be with you.
