Youth News: Aug. 8, 2019Thursday August 29th, 2019
We have two more weeks until E2 Kickoff! I hope that you’re all excited for this upcoming year as we head into this Youth 2019-20 season. In today’s Psalm I want to invite you all to meditate on this passage below…
10 A single day in your courtyards is better
than a thousand anywhere else.
I would rather guard the door of the house of my God
than live in the tents of sinful people.
11 The Lord God is like the sun that gives us light.
He is like a shield that keeps us safe.
The Lord blesses us with favor and honor.
He doesn’t hold back anything good
from those whose lives are without blame.
12 Lord who rules over all,
blessed is the person who trusts in you.
Based off of this reading, take time to answer these questions.
- What do you think the author meant when he said a single day in God’s court is better than a thousand elsewhere?
- How would a life living without blame look like?
- How can you continue to trust more in your Heavenly Father?
In all that we face and do, let’s continue to pursue a life of knowing our God each day.

No E2 this Saturday
Pastor David and Sam will be away at the Torchbearers Retreat this weekend and they will return on Sunday for 2nd hour service.
We want to say, “Thank You!” to all our Torchbearers that served last year. These students gave of their time and talents to serve in these areas of youth leadership: Community Development, Communications/Tech/Media, Hospitality, Prayer, Special Events, and Worship.
Our new Torchbearers for this upcoming school year are:
Please keep them in prayer as they come together to serve as a leadership team at the Torchbearers Retreat.
