The Church Council received an excellent report from Dane Wilkerson regarding the Student Ministry. The students just completed a mid-week study on their “Identity in Christ” and are about to begin an emphasis on “How to Share Their Faith.” Dane is encouraging the youth to bring their uninvolved friends. Both youth and volunteer attendees are remaining stable in number, but more Sunday morning volunteers, willing to invest in our youth, would be welcomed. Pray about your involvement!

Several goals have been set for the new year. As a church, we are asked to pray for the Student Ministry as well as to pray about the need for adult disciplers/mentors who would be willing to come alongside our youth, spending time with them on an individual basis, helping them to grow in Christ. We are blessed as a church to have Dane and Stephenie leading our youth ministry!
