Our youth group 5o5 continues to grow both in numbers, relationally, and spiritually. This month we have been very specific in our teaching. We are beginning to focus the group towards growth in Christ with a mindset for evangelism amongst their friends at school and growth in leadership. We really do not want the group to turn complacent, a place where people come to see their friends and be in their bubble. Christ never encouraged a bubble and neither do we. We have been meeting in Small groups with the guys and girls and talking about deep questions that produce growth, while allowing the students opportunities to lead in different areas. The students seem to love it and the fact that they are not looked down on, when they make mistakes, cause we all do. Learning to lead is a game of trial and error, they are getting the chance to make their mistakes in a safe environment and really learn who they are in a setting where they belong. Please pray for growth in all areas of our group.
We have also experienced growth in our Fusion. Nearly 12 new students have come and become involved. This is great for us musically, and is awesome because most of these new students are also going to 5o5 now and some to church. We pray that these two ministries would work hand in hand even more.
