Youth Group for Grades 6-12
Tuesdays 6:30-8:30pm – Meets in the youth room. Please join us!
The youth ministry of Ebenezer Bible Fellowship Church seeks to help students (grades 6-12) bring glory to God by being what He wants them to be and by doing what He wants them to do. We utilize a team of caring adults and college students who disciple students through small groups and other avenues both within and outside of regular youth activities.
The greatest temptation in all our lives is to remove Christ from His throne and insert ourselves. Satan’s temptation in the Garden suggested that we “would be like God” and we’ve struggled ever since. The author of Hebrews goes to great lengths to prove Christ’s superiority over all things while also challenging us to continue to keep Christ in His position as Lord of our Life. As we engage the book of Hebrews we will be challenged to “place Christ upon the throne” of our lives. We must surrender all that we hold in higher regard, humble ourselves of our pride and arrogance, and embrace Christ as Lord.
The story of Jonah is likely one familiar to many, both inside and outside of the church. However, most often the focus is on Jonah’s fantastical deliverance through a “great fish”. Much time has been spent debating the “scientific” validity of such an event, which unfortunately, draws our attention away from a much more fantastic story about a loving and abundantly gracious God. As we prepare to dive, pun intended, into the book of Jonah, my prayer is that God would open our eyes to the deep, I did it again, truths about God’s love and grace. The story of Jonah is really a story about God. The story of Jonah is a picture of a much greater story to come. The story of Jonah is all about grace for the graceless.
