Wonder what we’re all about?
Impact Youth Ministry exist to share the way of Jesus with our friends and family, to show them His love and to grow passionate followers of God who seek to worship Him with their whole lives.
Dear friends and family of Impact Youth,
This week our email comes from one of our youth team Freddie Ellis.
You might not be able to see it but God is always working in everything we do. When we are being creative, having fun and even those times when we are down or angry. I believe that God challenges us with situations to grow and learn from, he teaches us spiritually and helps us grow as a person. When we might think we can’t do something and something might be impossible, God can do it. As it says in Matthew 19 v 26 “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
God is always on our side, for us and behind us every step of the way. Ask God for help in those challenging times, pray to him and seek him. Be open to him working in you and give those difficult times over to him. Be patient on waiting for God keep seeking him and praying even if it feels like he’s not there.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says; Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
We have opened bookings for Soul Survivor! Have a look at our first parent letter here: Christ Church at Soul Survivor 2016.
