Friday youth work

by Struthers Cumbernauld

Another sunny Friday night with lots of smiling, happy children. In our younger meeting we had lots of singing as the song choices were in high demand! We played a game trying to make others laugh before talking about joy and how the joy of The Lord is with us even in difficult times to help us to be strong. Following this we went on to our stations of football, rounders, circle games and loom bands. We finished off our sunny evening with ice poles.

In our older session Davie began with lots of outdoor games that the young people loved. We then had a short meeting with some singing led by Ailsa before Zander split us into groups. We discussed the verses;

"And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed? If anyone is ashamed of me and my message, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in his glory and in the glory of the Father and the holy angels." (Luke 9:25, 26 NLT)

In our groups we discussed what it means to be ashamed of Jesus and how we would feel if Jesus was ashamed of us. Zander concluded by talking about the importance of standing up for what we truly believe. It was a good night all in.
