Your Sunday

Okay, it’s really God’s Sunday. But YOU youth are in charge. (Scary? A little!) It’s really great when a group of (older, wise) people entrust (younger, wise) people to lead them in Worship. And that’s what is happening THIS Sunday, Feb 28. We still need a few extra youth to serve as ushers (no microphone talking, handing out bulletins, greeting people). Please come to Friday night’s *fun* rehearsal if you can be a part of it.

Friday, Feb 26: Youth Sunday Rehearsal + 60 min of mayhem! 5:30-8:00 pm in Sanctuary/Gym 

  • Instead of our normal all-day Saturday rehearsal, we will have a quick run-through and also an hour of mayhem at church! (You can leave at 6:30 or stay for the mayhem!)

Sunday, Feb 28: Youth Sunday!!!!

  • (the best youth-led Sunday of the year)

  • Meet in the Youth House at 8:00 am for breakfast AND reviewing our parts (awesome food and caffeine for your waking up needs!)

Can’t wait for the fun!! If you signed up for a part on Wufoo, I’ll email them to you in the next 24 hours. Please look over your parts…I’ll have them printed out on Friday for ya. Yay!!

And now a little back story for the Psalm we are sharing on Youth Sunday…

cross_fyBrH_ud.jpgPsalm 63: King David was betrayed by his son Absalom, and his son sent an army out to kill David in Jerusalem. In this very dark time in his life, David left his rich life and fled to the wilderness of Judah to escape; he was starving, thirsty and alone. It is in this moment that he wrote Psalm 63: “O God, you are my God, I SEEK you, my soul THIRSTS for you. My flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water….Because your steadfast (constant) love is better than LIFE, my lips will praise you. So I will bless you as long as I live, I will lift up my hands and call on your name.”  See how there’s meaning behind the words of thirst and seeking? We’ll learn more on Friday. May God quench your thirst and help you find home.
