“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young.” So writes the apostle Paul to his young protégé, Timothy (1 Timothy 4:12). This word of encouragement can apply to our middle and high school students as they lead our worship service this Sunday.
Our youth group will lead and participate in almost all aspects of the service, from readings and prayers to musical offerings — both sung and instrumental. Lindsey Belt and Emily Morris will engage in a sermonic conversation with me entitled, “Faith Worth Questioning.” They will talk about the challenges they’ve faced in their life and in their faith, the parts of Christianity that they’ve most questioned, and the ways the church and others have helped them grow. It promises to be an inspiring service.
We are very blessed to have such wonderful youth as they are led by Erin Brown this year. Let us keep them in our prayers as they prepare to lead us in worship this Sunday!
