God at Work: Margaret Kwok

God at Work: Megan Kaura

It’s so easy to get caught up in only focusing on big, clearly visible things that happen in ministry, but sometimes the personal, internal transformations that are going on in people’s lives individually can often go unnoticed. Every Tuesday in the month of March, we will be posting a testimony of what God is ministering to and teaching one of our students. This week’s student testimony belongs to Megan Kaura, one of the sophomore girls in the high school ministry.

The Importance and Impact of Small Groups

Lives are sharpened in a small group because you can grow in ways that otherwise would not happen in a larger group of people. Small groups help build a level of intimacy that is easily lost in larger groups, which is why we cherish them so much!

To Those Who Encountered the Lord This Weekend

Everyone loves and looks forward to retreats because God always meets us so powerfully while we’re on the mountain.  Every year when we get back we say this, but it’s true: you can encounter God like you do at retreat wherever you are.  But how? God recently answered this question for me and I hope that it speaks to you too.

I want to hear from you

In Proverbs 11:14 it says, "Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety."It is not only important to hear many voices, but to also see from a different perspective. Even more so in the body of Christ, we need each other and no part can say to another,"I have no need of you".

God has put it on my heart tonight to ask for prayer on behalf of the Jr. High & High School students of our Youth ministry. Week in & week our leaders come along students who are struggling with addictions, depression, backsliding, among many other things. And there are also students who are growing the gifts God has given them, sharing the gospel, and giving themselves to the work of God.
