Happenings in May 
(A note from the Youth pastor)
 Hello all and Happy May!

During April, we studied Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount and learned ways that we can apply Jesus’ teachings to our lives. We worked in the garden, played outside, and fellowshiped at our Spring Lock-in!

This month’s theme will be Pentecost — not only will we learn about the Season’s significance in the history of the church, we will also talk about ways that the Holy Spirit moves in our lives today. To facilitate our discussion, we will look at four different stories from the Gospels and Acts where the Holy Spirit was present: Baptism of Jesus (Matt. 3), The Holy Spirit at Pentecost (Acts 2), Jesus and Nicodemus (John 3), and Jesus Comforts the Disciples (John 14).

We are looking forward to Camp July 8-13. If you are interested in

sponsoring a youth who has limited financial means to go to camp this year, you can write YOUTH CAMP in the memo line of your offering envelope.

 Youth Group Information
The youth program at First Christian Church is comprised of young people in grades 3-12. The Youth gather on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. for a meal, Bible study, and games! Once a month a fun trip is planned to such places as Carowinds, the movies, Appalachian Ski Mountain, etc.

The Youth try on mustaches at the Carolina Renaissance Festival

Throughout the school year the Youth  participate in a few community outreach programs, such as the Crop Hunger Walk, Samaritan Ministries, Christmas caroling for homebound church members, etc. The Youth also take an annual Summer Mission Trip to Christmount Work Camp, which is located in Black Mountain, NC.

The youth did an amazing job at the Cocoa and Carols performance!

Each May a particular Sunday is designated as “Youth Sunday” and all of the children and Youth are involved in worship, serving as leaders for the entire service.  They present a skit or play, serve as elders and deacons, read scripture and usually provide the sermon itself.  The event is well-attended and helps to connect the congregation with the Youth and children of the church.
