Hi Youth Group Parents, Families, and Staff,

Here’s a list of upcoming EBC Youth Events:

  • Service Saturday – Saturday, September 26th meeting at EBC from 9:00am – 12:00pm. I’ve got a couple of different service projects in the works for a team of youth! Please let me know if your student is planning to join us.

Tomorrow we have two things going on in youth ministry at EBC:

1.) Youth Group Study Session is happening from 3pm-6pm here at the church! This is a time for the students to come, bring their homework, get tutoring help if they need it, and be in community with other physical people! We will be providing dinner for the students that come, free of cost to you!

2.) Youth Group from 6:30pm – 8:30pm! Last week we looked at Philippians 4:6-7 and talked about our need to fight anxiety through prayer. Paul says that God gives us His very peace when we pray and thank the Lord, which is amazing news! Although He doesn’t always change our circumstances to relieve our anxieties, He is ALWAYS faithful to give us peace in the midst of circumstances when we are faithful to ask Him.

This week we’re going to be looking at 1 Peter 5:6-9. Peter admonishes us to, in humility, cast our burdens on the Lord. We’re going to focus on the topic of what it means to be humble in our lives, and how the enemy wants us to be self centered as a strategy to make us distrust God. When we get our eyes off of ourselves in humility, we start to see God for who He is – our provider, and comforter in the midst of all of our needs.

Myself and the youth staff are looking forward to connecting with your students tomorrow for the study sesh, and for youth group!

As always, if you have any needs, or questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out! I’m here to be a resource to you as you navigate the waters of teenage parenting and shepherding your kids!

With you and for you in Christ,

Ryan Aufenkamp
