My good friend introduced me to Young Life. Attending Young Life meetings, making new friends, and learning more about my best friend, Jesus, has influenced my determination to know more about the One who will always love me for who I am. Through regular attendance at the weekly Young Life meetings, and our amazing leader, Jen (Candia), I have become the happiest I've ever been. I am now a person who cares about other's happiness over my own. It's a good change for once. On Nov. 22, Thanksgiving Eve, I attended the service at FBCPG. As some of my friends, and other church members shared their emotional stories, I realized my best friend was there to help me cope with everything I had set aside and never told anyone. With that, a wave of emotions and relief was lifted from my body. I was saved. At that moment, I could not put into words how thankful I was for having someone that I know will never judge me and love me for the person I am. He also forgave me for the sins I have committed. With my best friend, Jesus, the support of Jen, and the amazing people in Young Life, I am excited to continue my journey of knowing and loving the One who had saved me in my time of need.
We call our youth group ignite! In John 10:10b, Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
ignite! is a great place to come have fun, make new friends, be challenged with the Word of God and experience the full life Jesus wants you to have! We meet at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday morning and at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday night in the youth room (upstairs). We also offer the opportunity to go on several fun activities throughout the year. We do things like lock-ins, lock-outs, bowling, mini golf, and summer camp!
