On Sunday night, we started our year with a time of fellowship, celebration, and worship. It was such a joy to look toward the year ahead! Many students shared about why Youth Ministry matters to them – they helped us all remember the importance of community and pursuing our faith together.
At the close of the night, there was an absolute downpour. In case you don’t know this about me, I simply love rain. There are about a million reasons why, but top of the list is the way it reminds me of God’s grace and provision. In Hosea 6:3, scripture says, “He will come to us like rain.” And I couldn’t help but see that quick summer shower as a promise of God’s goodness as we step into a new year together. Our God often operates with abundance, and after the rain had stopped, there were rainbows – another tangible reminder of Presence and Promise.
I’m going into the year hopeful and expectant. I hope you are, too.
Football Parking Fundraiser
For each of Tennessee’s home football games, we have the incredible opportunity to park cars on our campus and raise money for our Youth Department and Youth Choir. Each weekend, we tithe (give 10%) of our earnings to a Parking Lot Maintenance fund, and the remaining is divided evenly between the two groups.
It requires a significant amount of volunteer support to make this fundraiser work, and we ask all families to volunteer for at least two shifts during the season. Please use the link below to sign up and learn more.
Parents, please use the survey below share with us some helpful information at the start of the year. This survey includes contact info, volunteer sign-ups, and a place to share with us anything that would be helpful in serving your family at the start of the year.
In order for our Youth Department to operate to the best of its ability, we rely on the generous support of volunteers to make most of our activities happen. From Sunday school to SLA, NightLife to Senior Sunday, many hands make for light work. We would so appreciate you joining us in ministry as we serve your students this year!
Annual Release Form
Each year, we ask every student to complete an Annual Release Form. This acts as our medical and liability form for all of our events. Please complete this form for every student in your family!
