Why is Youth Week Important?
May 9, 2017
If you’ve been around Fair Haven and Harbor Churches, you’ve probably heard about this thing called Youth Week.
In a nutshell, Youth Week is the glorious collision of summer camp and local mission trip. This year somewhere between 250-300 middle and high students will live at Fair Haven, serve during the day, play in the afternoon, and worship at night.
It’s truly hard to put into words, but let me explain why Youth Week is so important.
There is no shortage of criticism about this generation, but Youth Week empowers young people to be agents of change.
There is no shortage of things that tend to divide people, but Youth Week is uniting the generations, genders, and skin color to serve.
There is no shortage of discouraging news on television, but Youth Week sends a message of hope and love to the world through action.
There is no shortage of mundane activities to do this summer, but Youth Week gives an opportunity to hundreds of people to be a part of something great.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the hope of the world.
We believe that God is doing something huge in this generation.
We believe that the best is yet to come.
Youth Week sends a big, loud, unified message to our community: That God is not done yet.
His mission through his church is still alive.
So, do you want to be a part of it? There’s still time, but not a ton.
The deadline to sign up for Youth Week is Thursday, June 1. If you are a middle or high school student, come join the movement! If you are an adult, we need your to help make it happen!
