Hello to all from youth ministry of SBC – ALIVE! What an exciting night we had at our launch on Friday Night!
Who are we? We want to be a group of young people who change our city and inspire nations when they see us doing it. We want to be a group of young people who change our worlds for Christ, not ashamed of the Gospel or the name of Jesus Christ (Rom 1:16); living our lives out loud for Him. We want to be bold in our faith, sharing the love of Jesus with everyone we come across. We want to be salt and light to this world (Matt 5:13-16). We are Alive in Christ (Eph 2:4-5,10) and we want the world to know the life we have! We want to be a group of young people who help those who are in need, who see others as better than ourselves and serve others with a heart like Christs’ (Phil 2:1-4; Romans 12:9-13). We want to be a group of young people who genuinely love those we live our lives with everyday (John 13:34-35). We never want to back down, we would rather try and fail than do nothing. We want the world to see the life that Jesus has given us! And so we begin this journey together knowing that God has great plans for us (Jer 29:11) and know that we can do this, without fear, because Christ will never leave us (Deut 31:6) and will give us the strength to endure any hardship (Phil 4:13)!
THIS IS WHO WE ARE – YOUTH ALIVE IN CHRIST!
On Friday Night wehad a competition to see who could eat a plate of Jelly the fastest – the twist? It was BOVRIL Jelly!
Contestants vomitted people laughed- a good time had by all 🙂
Shaun and Werner (our amazing RFMers) also made a giant smore(that’s right, two giant biscuits and a giant marshmallow) – the only problem:
Shaun nearly gassed us up with the blow torch he was going to use to melt the smore – he turned the cannister and all the gas started to leak out rapidly – people died… But they got better! After this we gave out free smores for everyone to roast on the fire. Yum Yum! Great times!
So, what’s happening soon. Well, Alive Connect happens on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 5:30-7:00. If you are a follower of Christ, the next step is to get plugged in to a community where you can grow together with other people who are Alive in Christ! Find out more info here.
Also, can you believe that it is Easter already – the year is flying (Another one of my puns as there is a “flyer” here to tell you what is happening)!
Dates to Diarise This Term
Coming up in the calendar is our Matric Braai happening on 29 April 2014. This is a great opportunity for the Matrics to have some to hang out with others going through this year. This time will be filled with great conversation, great food and most importantly we will get to pray for all the Matrics as they head into exam time and pray about their futures. Come along to this if you are in Matric, going to be lame without you 😉
From 17-18 May 2014, Alive will be going on our Overnight Hike! Pack your warm clothes, your costume and your hiking shoes as we will be digging deep into the bush, finding dams and/or rivers and adventuring til we drop. This is going to be an extreme time! Adventuring together will build our community! Can’t wait!
