It's a season of new beginnings. New semester of school, new clothes, possibly even a new goal for 2019. Even a fresh blanket of snow reminds us that new life will once again emerge in a just a few months. As an entire church, we've taken a cue from the book of Romans as our launch pad for a new year with a series called "Brand New"." We're even taking some peeks at those same scriptures in Student Ministry.
So, do you have any new goals for your faith this year? Maybe it's a new challenge to grow in Christian community. Life Groups have picked back up and are in full swing on Wednesday nights for all students. Perhaps this is the year you finally invite some of your closest friends to Renew, a special event, or even summer church camp? Maybe something "new" is to get into God's Word more...after all, when you open your Bible, God opens His mouth. What is God doing new in your life? What kind of transformation are you allowing Him to make?
And the one sitting on the throne said, "Look, I am making everything new!" And then he said to me, "Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true." Revelation 21:5 (NLT)
I hope we never get tired of new. New can be inspiring. New can stimulate growth. New can be just what we need. In 2019 we'll experience some new scenarios as a Student Ministry too. We're beginning a new series at Renew this Sunday, we're trying out a new summer camp for High School (see below), and we hope to see new faces added to our HCC Teens family. Let's continue to rely on the One who is trustworthy and makes all things new!
See you out there!
