What is G4L?
G4L is our youth ministry. It stands for Grounded for Life.
Deuteronomy 6:7 says, “and these words that I command you today
shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children”
(ESV). This puts the responsibility of a child’s discipleship squarely on
the shoulders of their parents. G4L’s role is to come alongside
parents to aid in the discipleship process through group Bible studies,
team-building activities, service projects, missions and evangelism
training. These strong foundations “ground” a child for a life that
honors God in thought, word and deed.
WHAT WE DO:
o Youth Gathering
We meet once a month (usually the second Sunday) from 12:30-2:30
PM. We eat lunch, do a team-building activity or two, then have a
discussion-based Bible study. This year (2018-2019), we will be going
through a curriculum called “Treasuring God’s Word.” We will also
discuss how to know and defend biblical doctrine, how to live a holy
life, and we’ll take a look at some methods for memorizing Scripture.
o Apologetics Training
We encourage our youth to attend the classes held before the
Sunday morning church service (8:45-9:30). Currently, Gordy Cucullu
is teaching a course in apologetics (defense of the Christian faith).
o Group Activities
Once a month, we have a get-together. We may go somewhere like
the beach, or we may just find a field and play flag football or Frisbee
golf. Whatever we do, there will always be food and fun!
- Sunday, October 21: The monthly lunch meeting led by Mr. Foster will take place after church in the conference room. The Joshuas will provide the meal.
- Saturday, October 27: The G4L event for October will be a costume party at the church in the all-purpose room from 4:00-6:00ish. No scary garb, please. ;) It will include an autumn potluck provided by YOU--so think "cozy" dishes that are (to quote Mrs. Joshua) "heart-warmers that feel like shorter days and cooler temps."
