Dear teens and parents,
What a strange week this has been! The changes and the ongoing uncertainty can easily tempt us to focus on our fears instead of our God. Thankfully, Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He is with us even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20). Please continue to pray for one another and our world. Pray for God's will and glory in the defeat of this virus. We want people to have life and even more importantly we want them to know eternal life through Jesus Christ (John 17:3).
Yesterday our president gave new guidelines encouraging us to avoid groups of more than 10 people. For the present, these instructions prevent us from physically meeting as a youth group. Our onsite meetings/activities will be suspended until further notice.
This Wednesday evening from 7:00-8:00 pm we will have an online teen meeting instead of meeting at the church building. It will be a video chat format that allows our youth group to interact instead of just listening to a webcast. To access the meeting visit https://zoom.us/j/997976546. Our format will be similar to our regular teen meetings with the exception of group singing due to technical restrictions. We will play a game near the beginning (wait and see), followed by prayer requests, testimonies and prayer. We will conclude with a Bible study to continue our 1 Timothy series.
To clarify, we will be postponing our teen outreach originally scheduled for this Saturday, March 21. We plan to reschedule as soon as it is advisable to do so.
Feel free to call or reply to this message with questions. Please let me know how I can pray for your family.
With hope in Christ,
Tri-City Baptist Church
