Youth Work Update

by Struthers Cumbernauld

A great first night back at our youth club.
We had over 30 children at our Friday night work. They were all very excited to be back! It was great to see them. Our theme was New Year resolutions. We played charades, with some of our youth leaders acting out different resolutions for children to guess, such as going to the gym more. A panel of children gave advice on how to keep resolutions. We talked about getting to know Jesus better and what that means. Older children were given the opportunity to take home a copy of the Gospel of Mark.

In our Student Zone, around 20 gathered including a few new faces and a visit from one of our Abronhill Parish Church friends who shared a wonderful testimony to the faithfulness and changing power of God. We also had group discussions about our resolutions for the year ahead. We focused particularly on the importance of discipline in our lives if we are to be true disciples of Jesus. Later we had some games and enjoyed some chill time together, with lots of fun and laughter! A great first night back and we pray that God will be deeply with us as we move forward in this work.
