Friday youth work update

by Struthers Cumbernauld

We had just under 50 children at our youth club on Friday. We began with a mix of action and adult songs chosen by the kids. It was great to hear them singing their hearts out! The message was on the verse 'I am the way, the truth and the life.' The story of creation leading to the cross was broken down very simply and a gospel message was given. At the end of this, around 15 children asked Jesus into their hearts as we all prayed together and there was a lovely sense of the welcome of God reaching out to these children! They then went on to their usual activities of football, games, science, arts and crafts and music which was lots of fun.

In our high school age group meeting, we began with lots of team games which were really enjoyed by the young people. This was followed by a meeting which had a short time of singing followed by a brief testimony from Ailsa. Scott then brought the verses 'even the very hairs of your head are numbered' and 'cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you.' He illustrated these verses through inter-active games. Scott explained what it means to really give your cares to Jesus, and the wonder of the fact Jesus knows us best. We are very encouraged to have had new young people at this meeting every week so far. Please continue to uphold this work in your prayers.
