Youth follow-up activities (28/06)
28th June 2020

Hello Everyone!

Hello you wonderful young people and welcome to Youth @ Home

For the next few weeks we will be following along with the adults and the wider church. The idea being that you can take part in church at home with your families and keep chatting through the subjects.

Questions

Here are some questions we encourage you to chat through with your families in response to today’s video

Years 6-9

  • Who is Jesus to you? How would you describe him to somebody who had never heard of him before?
  • What does it mean to ‘take up your cross daily’?
  • Do you think you’re ready to take up your cross? What might that look like for you?

Years 9-13

  • Who do you say Jesus is? Who is he to you?
  • What would denying yourself look like in your life at the moment? What would have to change?
  • Do you take up your cross daily and follow Jesus? What does that mean to you?

Beckah is available between 11am and 12pm today to chat through some of your answers on Whatsapp or text 

Things to do

In light of school closures, each week I will put together a list of ideas of things you can be doing (after your school work!) to keep busy! Please send in your suggestions so we can share them around and any photos of the activities you’ve been up to this week!

Self-care Sunday

Chat to someone from another generation

It’s so easy for me to go by in life hanging out with friends my own age. And although I’d like to think I’ve chosen those friends wisely and they have lots of advice, wisdom and fun to feed into my life. Sometimes there’s a lot to learn from those who went before us (or were born after). Like my Grandma who is almost 90 and finally returned home from 3 months in hospital! (PS – she’s on my mum’s phone…she doesn’t have FaceTime!)

We’d love to hear about what exercise you’ve been up to in lock-down!

Pray

Jesus,
You are __________.
Thank you for using me to spread the gospel of who you are. Please help me to keep denying myself and continue to teach me what it means to follow you with courage.
Amen

Pause

Listen

  • Notice what is around you. The Lord may be speaking to you through what you notice as you focus on Him.  
  • What is God saying to you about following him?
  • Where is he leading you in your life?
