Youth Ministry Spotlight
Thank you for sending your students with us to another Fall Retreat this past September 9-11. 169 youth came with us to Bethany Camp. Our time was full of laughter and fun while we swam, played paintball, used the zip line, and enjoyed the camp’s many amenities. More importantly, God did incredible things in the lives of our middle and high school students. Nine youth committed their lives to Jesus for the first time! 82 recommitted their lives to Christ. Furthermore, we had 40 students indicate interest in baptism. Would you join us in praying for the decisions students made for Jesus at Fall Retreat?
There are exciting things happening across campuses. McKinley youth, meeting at The Hub, combined middle and high school nights to align with Tuesday Nights at Revive. About 100 teens have attended each week! At South Creek, we renovated one of the empty classrooms in the Loft to be a game room. This space is perfect for teens to come and grow closer to God and each other. Our youth at Springville have had strong attendance to start the school year and are starting to outgrow their space! The newest youth group, East Aurora, just began a partnership with the East Aurora Middle School to hold youth group in the school gym once a month. All students are invited to our first Revive-All event, a Thrift Shop Gala, at The Hub, on November 11. Come dressed to impress on a budget!
Thank you for your continued prayer for the youth of Revive Wesleyan. We believe this next generation is not the Church of the future, but the Church of today, and it is a blessing to partner with them in ministry.
