New Life Community Church held a graceful Sunday service and teen hiking fellowship on October 23. Pastor Cindy delivered the message "demonstration of God's love" from Romans 5:6-8.
"How can we know God's love? That is through Jesus Christ. How? Paul explained the core simply, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. God loved us first. Nobody wants to die, but Christ died for the sinners. That's the true love God has demonstrated to us. Through knowing the love, we can be satisfied. We can have the power to overcome all the difficulties in our life." The message also exhorted everyone to meditate and know God's love deeply in the daily life.
After service, they had a time of breaking bread and went hiking to Lake Roland Park as planned. Guy volunteered to provide transportation for this trip. He has contacted the church to be a volunteer for teen outreach programs. He has participated in other youth functions including sports/bible study with his church. He would like to serve the youth wherever needed.
They enjoyed the beautiful God's creation together joyfully and shared bible verses in Psalms 19 and Psalms 8. Teen Jafre reflected on this trip, "I feel I want to be close to God more during difficult times. I want to know his love deeper. The park is really great! I love it. I hope we can come to do bible study or picnic here and invite other people joining."
Praise the Lord! May God bless Baltimore church and teen mission can grow!
