Words from the Leadership

  • Each year every youth group goes through changes. Teens head off to college, full time careers, military or new adventures. It is our prayer that wherever God leads them that they go equipped to spread the Gospel, but I see a bigger calling. Not only for them to go equipped, but also willing. I want to encourage each Student from FBC St. Marys to go be in the world and not of the world. Jesus says in John 15:19 "If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own. However, because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of it, the world hates you." So with life and its many worldly pressures against you, remember as Pastor Steve would say "Remember who you are and Whose you are!" Show others the love, mercy, compassion and forgiveness that Christ has shown us. I love each and every one of you and I know with your willingness, God will use you for great things in His name.
