Hello From The WSFC Youth Pastor
It’s my pleasure to be greeting you for the first time through this medium! So… Hello!
It has been such a BLAST serving the Middle School and High School aged students of our community these past months. In this last season we have enjoyed small groups, praise parties, the VIP Conference, attending students’ extracurricular activities, and seeing students give their lives to Jesus!
That last one LIGHTS ME UP!
In the past 7 weeks we have been in a teaching series titled – “Wait a Minute, Who Are You?”. A study from the book of John dedicated to finding out who Jesus really is. Not just the Sunday school stories that anyone can tell you about. But really pressing into finding out who this person is that we have dedicated our lives to following. We’ve based these teachings from the 7 “I am” statements of Jesus.
It has been fun to see students asking questions, pressing deeper in their understanding, looking to scripture, and learning from their youth group community.
And all of this has been fun, yes, but this is just the start! We have so much planned for our students to deepen their faith and grow in relationship with Christ.
And I am looking forward to every bit of it!
Starting with summer camps!
And their coming up – July 23rd-27th.
Camps have been some of the most pivotal and influential moments for so many students. Including myself growing through WSFC as a student. They have been the odd flat escalator at the airport to my faith journey.
If you have a student, son, daughter, granddaughter or grandson that may be interested – email me at Preston.Rivera@WSFC.org for details.
