Celebrate Creation

creation care

As Wesleyan (Methodist) Christians we believe that we are responsible to help care for all of God’s creation–people, animals, and the planet we inhabit.  By giving us dominion, God has given us the gift and charge of promoting sustainability.  I won’t lie-this is not (historically) Christianity’s strongest trait, but we are getting better!  To celebrate God’s good creation phyouth plans to spend time out in it!  On Sunday April 26th, 2015 phyouth will meet at Allsopp Park (instead of PHUMC) at 5:30pm for food and fun!  

Other things.

  • OMP – If you are registered for one of our OMP camps, we need your final payment and paper work by April 29th. 
  • Confirmation retreat is this weekend (April 24th-25th)!
  • Miracle League – April 25th come be a buddy for a very special baseball player!  phyouth will be there from 9:15am-4:15pm.  Drop off and pick up is at Jr. Deputy Park.

Hallelujah, Christ is Risen!  But that’s not where the year ends.  Even though life is crazy busy and our schedules are crammed to the brim, I encourage you to make a point to be in worship and in fellowship each week.  It’s tempting to prioritize other things before our relationship with God and with our Christian brothers and sisters, which is why it’s that much important that you keep your focus on the One who gives us life.  Make it to small group, go to worship with your family, come eat and worship with phyouth on Sunday-however it works, stay plugged in!

Holy Week


Holy Week

My prayer for this holy week is that we all take a moment to reflect on God’s great gift – how God emptied himself and took on the form of humanity, so that through Christ we might finally be set free from sin in order to love one another.

There are many worship opportunities this week, I encourage you to find a spot in your schedule to come and celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord.  See the schedule below for worship dates and times.

Break

Spring BreakWho doesn’t love spring break?  It’s a well-placed moment where we can all catch our breath – or lose it doing something fun and meaningful.  No matter where you find yourselves next week: a beach, the slopes, packing the Breadbox and headed to Dallas with your favorite youth pastors, I hope you take a moment to appreciate the goodness of God’s creation in the places you visit and the people you meet.

Please be in prayer for us as Jay and I lead a group of 12 from phyouth to Dallas for our 2015 Spring Break Experience.  We will be in mission and ministry with various organizations throughout the city.  Our group is being commissioned in the 11am New Heights worship service this Sunday (Mar. 22nd), so come to that service for prayer and support!

Let us also keep everyone who is traveling over the next week or so in our prayers, for safety and well being.

Veritas + NO Sunday night phyouth

veritaslogo

 

Sheesh!  Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow no more!  Thankfully, our sunny and relatively warm Friday has allowed us to continue with our weekend as planned and we will load up and leave for Veritas this evening at 6:45.  We will return on Sunday afternoon around noon.  Please be in prayer for our youth going, that God would move in them and motivate them to move out into the world as faithful disciples of Christ empowered by God’s Spirit.

We will not be meeting for our regular Sunday night youth gathering to allow for our Veritas group to catch up on sleep/school work.  Jimmy Faulkner’s Senior High Bible Study IS meeting, however, so we hope you can join us for that if you are in grades 9th-12th.
