There are thousands of people around the world whose job is to make you want something, and now. They are selling movies, shoes, games, makeup, clothes, phones, and more. They sell to us from social media, films, bus stops, and radio spots. We find ourselves simply consumed by all the things our hearts begin to desire. Instead, we should be consumed with God and let go of the things of this world.
Our October Youth night is going to be a super fun corn maze adventure at night! We'll be meeting in the barn at 7pm for dinner and a devotional on having balance, as we examine how we define success. Our youth are excelling in so many areas: academics, sports, arts, community service and a variety of extracurricular activities. They are also an active presence in their home with chores and big sibling responsibilities, as well as developing their relationships with God. In the midst of all of these obligations and priorities, our youth need balance and biblical perspective.
It's the start of a new school year and we're excited to welcome our youth back from our summer break. As we enter new school environments and meet new people, it's important to understand that our words can be our greatest asset or worst enemy when we speak without thinking. Join us for our next youth night as we learn just how much our words matter.
We're excited to host our first Oxygen Lock-In this summer in lieu of our usual youth night. Come ready to have a blast as we learn how to live for God in a counterculture world. All middle school and high school students are invited. Bring a friend!
For some of us, the 2017-2018 school year was amazing and for others, we might need a "do over" next year. Lucky for us, we serve a God of second chances! Join us for our last youth night of the school year as we review where we've been and how we can move forward.
Someone wise once said, "If you can see it, it's not your enemy." There is a spiritual battle raging around us every day. And every day seems like another battle to fight. With our human eyes, we see fighting in school, at home, and even with friends! At this youth night, we're diving into the various battles we all face and how we can put on the full armor of God so that we are strong in the Lord.
Since the beginning of time, man has been searching for significance. We look for meaning and purpose in this life. Sometimes people search for it in sports, career ambitions, or relationships. True significance is found in our relationship with God.
A couple who visited the Bridge has decided to donate 40 tickets for some well deserving youth to see Black Panther. They loved the positive messages Black Panther has to offer. Though race/ethnicity of the youth attending is not a factor, the donors wanted to make sure black youth saw their values, worth, representation, and likeness from all aspects.
Every day is an opportunity for us to put one in the books for Christ. The best way to make each day count is to develop strong, daily, spiritual habits like reading the bible and praying. During this youth night, we'll be learning how to live a "Now or Never" life.
Join us in February for our first youth conference! Pursue Christian Teen Conference (PCTC) is an annual event held in Harrisburg, drawing Christian churches from neighboring states for a weekend of top-notch teaching and worship, challenging workshops, and fun.
The new year is an opportunity to dream big for what God will do in us and through us. At this youth night, we'll be working with our youth to cast a vision for their future. Youth should come ready to create their own vision board to claim the promises of God and commit to what they want to see happen in 2018!

It's November. It's that time of year that we start thinking about the holidays, time with family, eating turkey and stuffing. We even have a holiday dedicated to giving thanks…Thanksgiving. As we approach this season, we want to focus on developing a heart of humility and gratitude.
