Youth & Family Ministry Corner
The Missouri State Fair was a great success, and so was the Missouri Baptist Tent. I want to thank all those who helped work at the Baptist Tent on Sunday August 15, and Saturday 21. On Saturday eleven Calvary Youth came and served at the Baptist Tent. They passed out Salvation bracelets, and shared their faith with 107 plus people, of which 18 came to saving faith in Jesus Christ; Praise God. A. W. Tozer said, “I would not give a nickel for the Christian that has no proof of his salvation, except he quotes a text. The text will lead you to the fountain, but if you plunge into the fountain and come up wet, I will know you are a Christian” (And He Dwelt Among Us, A. W. Tozer).
Each of these youth did not just quote scripture, but took the plunge into the fountain of their faith. They were afraid and did not always know what to say or say things right, but they tried and God blessed their efforts; to God be the Glory!
With school starting, we need to be in prayer for each young person’s safety throughout the school year. As they travel to School and while they are there. Pray for their parents/guardians as they help them during this year to be successful in everything they do.
Please be in prayer for the following activities, that God will use them in a mighty way. We are always looking for volunteers if you would like to help, just seek me, Pastor Jonathan, and we will find a place for you to serve.
