YOUTH NEWS . . .
January 16, 2018
It has been a bit of a whirl wind for the student ministry the last few months! I’d love to say that Winter Retreat went off without a hitch, but mother nature had a good bit to say about it as many of or students and adults had the dreaded flu and had to stay home. However, that did not keep us from having a great and productive retreat! Sometimes, it is nice to have a smaller group, relationships flourish is such environments. I am thankful for such relationships that have been developing for now, in some cases, six years! We came home refreshed and rested for the new year! Students and adults alike have hit the mission field with new ambitions and ready to serve!
As most of you know the SETBA hosted an associational wide event at FBC this past week! Adults enjoyed Dr. Reavis while students had the opportunity to “preview” church camp in 2018 with Tim Ramsey and Fran Aragon. Children even got into the game by learning from Chris Bailey and her group of wonderful children’s ministry helpers. From a student prospective, we had 91 in attendance, with three known salvations. This is great news for not only those who accepted Christ, but also for Camp! Be in prayer for the 2018 SETBA Youth Camp. I know God will do many great things! Some big thanks for all of those who assisted throughout the night in many areas of service. There is a reason why the SETBA looks to FBC to host such events, and that reason is the level of service in which our members provide. Thanks to all of you who helped by coming early for set up, securing the buildings, greeting many guest, and of course staying late to help clean up! This cannot happen without you!
