As we celebrate Christian Education Sunday this month, I can't help but think of the future generation of our church here at Milltown. There are so many bright spots with our youth and with our youth leaders. It's incredible to see the next and current generation of the Church interacting together.
For those who don't know Greg Applegate, Yolanda Mackey, and Randi Riley lead our Youth Ministry here at the church. They pour so much time into our teens, and I am so thankful for what they do. They create a fun, safe, and open environment where the teens can come and grow together.
The youth took time last month to go to Karma Kat here in town and volunteer. An important principle in our Youth Ministry is to have fun, but to also give back. The youth of our church are setting an example for us to follow. How incredible is that!
The scriptures are filled with passages about taking care of others and showing love. John 13:34 says, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another." May we be a people that follow the example of our youth and shower love into our community. Amen!
