This past month the HS youth group returned from a week- long mission trip where the teens took part in three mission projects. 15 members/leaders from the group traveled to Lookout Mountain, Georgia which is right on the Georgia and Tennessee state line. There the group worked for the Chattanooga Parks and Recreational services first restoring a playground in Chattanooga and then worked with the Forestry Division cutting vines of English Ivy that were killing the trees in their parks. Zero Gravity also held a backyard Bible school for 21 children in a park in Rossville, GA. The youth held the VBS in a park playing games, holding a daily Bible lesson, and providing crafts for the children. The challenges included no running water or bathrooms and few supplies, but the entire event was amazing and so many great stories came from the experience.
While at Student Life Missions the teens and leaders participated in six hours of daily worship and Bible study along side their mission work. This year’s theme, The Word, comes from Psalms 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Teens studied how the Bible is always current and that the Word of God is the key to guidance and will sustain us in all aspects of our lives.
Thank-you to all the love, prayers and support from our church family and friends of First Presbyterian Church! It is always a blessing working with the teens, parents, and leaders that make this a successful youth program in our ministry at First Presbyterian.
