We are dedicated to proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ on a weekly basis in our Student Ministry, in part because 2 out of every 3 people will choose to believe in Jesus Christ before they turn 18 years old. This means kids and teenagers are very open, receptive, and in fact are seeking spiritual answers to life.
Last year we witnessed 13 teenagers make decisions to trust in Christ. This year we have already had 1 teenager put her faith and trust in Jesus Christ as well. This is exciting! And quite frankly, this is why we do what we do in Student Ministry: to build students up in their faith and reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
As a result, we are doing something new in Student Ministry this year as part of our Epic worship service. Every time a teenagers indicates a decision to trust in Christ for the first time we are going to fly a white helium-filled balloon on the following Sunday morning as a way to celebrate and acknowledge the new life that has been found through Jesus Christ!
Praise God for what He has done and what He is continuing to do in the life of teenagers at GFC!
