“Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them”” Ecclesiastes 12:1
There’s a problem in our communities. People live in fear of anti-social behaviour and intimidation. Our homes and community spaces are victims to wanton vandalism and criminal damage. Children’s play areas are used as arenas for alcohol and drug abuse.
Aimless, bored and disaffected young people are so often part of the problem. But young people aren’t just a problem in need of a solution. They can be the solution.
We are unashamed about our motivation – the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our faith is our reason why.
Tonight we begin our Friday Night Project, the new youth club in Godmanchester for secondary school young people. There are plenty of fun things to get involved with, we have different zones around the building;
-Gaming; Playstation 3, Wii and X-box
-Sit and Snac; tuck shop, drinks, bean bags, music
–Happening; pool table, table tennis tables, table football, air hockey
We will also be having special events and theme nights as well
On Sunday we begin our new congregation for young people: Generation Rising. Generation Rising is a place for young people to meet with God in a way which makes sense to them. This is a place where they can belong, worship and serve. There will be a mix of music, creative arts, prayer, group discussion, and teaching.
Spend a few minutes praying for the success of the Friday Night Project and Generation Rising.
