Youth Group Meets Sundays 3:30pm

Tuesdays at 5:30

Our biblical theme for January and February will be “Holy  Water”. 

We are learning about the importance of water in the Bible and in our everyday lives. Water is represented in Creation, Baptism, Cleansing Salvation and the  Holy Spirit. Water is often present in    displays of God’s love for us. A world without water would be dry and dead. Water is essential for life!

While we look deeper into scripture to find these themes we will also be using water to help a seedling garden to grow. Just like God offers us the water of life we will do the same for some herbs and flowers. We are hoping to nurture our seedlings all the way to becoming an outdoor container garden in the spring. With some blessing from above this little garden with help us learn more about fresh foods and how to use them in healthy recipes this spring and summer  :)
