Teenagers in today's society have been called Generation X. Parents and teachers have given up on them, the authorities are running out of room in the jails for them, and Satan has tried to X them out. We believe that God has a mandate for the youth of this nation, but it is going to take a lot of love, patience and creativity to reach them. We meet with our teens every Friday. The events vary from week to week. We may go bowling, gospel roller skating, have a Youth Talent Night, or just watch a good Jesus based movie...with popcorn! There are many other events, including summer camping trips and bus jaunts to Pennsylvania to see a play! To us, it's important to keep our teens growing in love with Jesus...
Vessels of Honor Ministry
This ministry is designed and inspired by the Holy Spirit with women in mind. Proverbs 31:10 reads, “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies." Many women were products of their upbringing. We are raised in various types of homes and subjected to various types of environments. Many women were raised to believe that there was no hope for our behaviors, therefore justifying their hurts and allowing the world to short change them. For instance, some would have women to believe that hurt, bruised and damaged emotions were irrepairable; but God says it's not so. Romans 12:2, reads " And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
Some goals we plan to accomplish are:
- Defeating the spirit of fear
- Conquering the spirit of anger
- Dealing with P.M.S. and menopause
- Dealing with bitterness from past hurts
- Learning to let go of the past
- Helping to heal others as God heals us
During this time of instruction and fellowship, we look into God's Word for guidance and sanctification. We minister the importance of purity and integrity, and help those who are struggling. The group deals with male issues you'll seldom hear talked about elsewhere: adultery, homosexuality, bisexuality, masturbation and much more. We can no longer just put a `band-aid' on sexual sin! The wounds of the victim and victimizer can only be healed one way-from the inside out by Jesus Christ!
There is hope for all God's children who have the desire to keep from falling. We discuss the shame and guilt that comes along with these sins, exposing the alleys and avenues that our lustful flesh tries to take us to so it may consume us. We achieve victory by determining our need for deliverance using God's Word and direct application. We continually work on reforming our habits to maintain the deliverance to become that which we are in Christ...more than a Conqueror!! The Bible is clear when it says 'Flee from sexual immorality: because your bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. You are not your own, you were bought with a price. Therefore honor God with your body."1 Corinthians 6:18-20
Meetings are held every other Friday at 6 pm. Previous Lesson Titles: Tough Questions About Me, Pornography - From Victims To Victors, Reformation Of Habits, Direct Application, 777 = The Formula For Deliverance, Where Are You?
