Hillyer Youth News, March 29, 2013
Hi Hillyer Youth and Parents!
I hope you are having a wonderful beginning to your spring break and a sacred Holy Week. Wherever you are, try to find a place to worship this weekend. Spend some time reading the stories in the gospels of Jesus death and resurrection. Spend some time in prayer. Remember that Jesus is alive! God’s love has won out over all hate, God’s life has won out over all death. In God we have nothing to fear. God is making all things new. Jesus is alive and because of that we too can find new life in God!
Here is what is going on in youth group in the next couple of weeks…
- We will not have youth group or Hillyer Live this Sunday night for Easter.
- If you are interested in counseling camp this summer (open to youth 16 and older and adults) sign up for the counselor training at Hillyer on May 8th. Click here to sign up: http://hillyeryouth.wordpress.com/2013/03/22/be-a-church-camp-counselor/
- Join us Saturday April 6th to serve breakfast to our homeless neighbors at Moore Square park with Love Wins!
Remember you are deeply loved by God and called to share that love with the world around you!
God bless you,

Connect with God
On Easter, Mary Magdalene was the first to see Jesus alive. She left the tomb running with great excitement to tell everyone that she had seen the Lord! Where have you seen the Lord? Where have you seen God alive in your world? Where have you seen hope come to places that seemed hopeless or love come to places that seemed so filled with hate and apathy? This week, be like Mary! Go tell the good news the hope has come to the dark places, love has come to the world, YOU have seen the Lord! Give God thanks!
Make a Difference and Love Big!
Join us on Saturday April 6th to share God’s big love with our neighbors who are homeless by serving breakfast in the park. Call or email Allison if you want to join us! It will be great fun.
