The Next Act: Youth Ministry
Hebrews 5:12-6:3 NRSV
Elise Bernhard & Avery Murphy
12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic elements of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food; 13 for everyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is unskilled in the word of righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.
6 Therefore let us go on toward perfection, leaving behind the basic teaching about Christ, and not laying again the foundation: repentance from dead works and faith toward God, 2 instruction about baptisms, laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3 And we will do this, if God permits.
Call to Worship
Leader: We are the children of an amazing God, who holds the world in His hands
People: And this God knows each of us by name.
Leader: Who are we that you are so mindful of us?
People: Who are we that you made us a little lower than the angels
and crowned us with glory and honor.
Leader: On this Youth Sunday, we celebrate the gift of our imagination, creativity, and endless possibilities.
People: Give us wisdom to discern, courage to live beyond our fears,
and vision to embrace our tomorrows with assurance.
All: Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, no heart has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. Amen.
