Midwest City Christian
First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
A Word From Dustin…
1 Timothy 4: 11-13 These are the things you must insist on and teach. Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Until I arrive, give attention to the public reading of scripture to exhorting, to teaching.
I am very excited for this Sunday to celebrate a couple of big moments. First, shout out to all of the dads out there! Happy upcoming Father’s Day to you all. I know I look back to all of the things that my father taught me, and I am so thankful to have had a man in my life that loved to teach life lessons. Make sure that your kids get out and mow your lawn or take you out to lunch!
Secondly, we will be celebrating the services of our youth group, as they lead us in worship this Sunday. Our students have gone through a lot of rough change in the last year, and I think they have grown together because of it. I love these kids so much, and I look forward to them leading the congregation. They have each divided our normal Sunday roles up between them, and were responsible for picking the worship songs that you will hear.
Matt Moler is our lone senior this year, and we will get to hear him as he leads our lesson this Father’s day. Matt is still working on what he would like to share with the congregation, but he did tell me that he has enjoyed the disciple’s regional youth theme this year that focused on reconciliation.
I hope you are ready for a fun/carefree environment and show up to support our group. I think that Youth Sunday is one of the coolest things that this church does. Let us just enjoy Sunday for what it is a group of students worshiping the Father in what ways they know how. Enjoy the laughs, the smiles, maybe some awkwardness and let us make worship fun together.
Thank you all so much for sharing the journey,
On Wednesday Evening, June 13th, We will have a meal in the JCAC at 6 p.m. and then head over to the main church building to do two run throughs of Youth Sunday. Make sure to try to have all of your content ready for the service by Wednesday.
On Sunday Evening, June 17th, We will not have evening youth group so that families can celebrate Father’s Day.
High School camp is quickly approaching. Our students will head to Guthrie from June 25th-June 29th. Please be in prayer for our students.
Youth Sunday is on the schedule this year for June 17th. We will need all of our students to participate in the worship service this year!
Hello all, I am interested in building up a team of youth volunteers to
help on Wednesday nights, Sunday Mornings and Sunday Evenings. If you are interested in hanging out during Youth Group, leading Sunday school, or leading a home group on Sunday evenings, please do not hesitate to let me know! – Dustin
If you know anyone who might be interested in joining us, please give me a call! I would love to reach out to them!
We sometimes get weird about saying Thank You to the men in our lives. It may not sound manly and macho. Some people prefer a hand-shake, some a man-hug, and some (like myself) just give a regular hug. But its important that we recognize our fathers and our father figures and say thank you to them as well. It means a lot to the men in our lives to know that we appreciate them. How many things have they taught us? We learned how to do so many things around the house, the car, the yard, and life in general. They helped shape the person we are today with the example they gave us. Like with our mothers, we sometimes didn’t realize how smart they really are until we were older and parents ourselves. So thank you to all our fathers for putting up with us, for helping teach us when it took longer and was more frustrating, for being an example in our life, and for being there for us.
Thank you, and we love you.
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
