We are learning how to live out our faith in a relevant way. We meet downstairs in the Youth Room every first and third Sunday at noon and are currently led by Pastor Todd Forrest. Be a part of developing relationships, games, worship and messages that deal with the challenges of growing up in this world as a follower of Jesus. The Youth Group is currently studying the Youth version of Alpha. Come and join us!
The teenage years can be some of the most confusing and discouraging times of life. However, they do not have to be. As each young person goes through these years, there is a place where they can be accepted as they are, grow in the knowledge of God and understand what life is all about. This why we have youth ministry at Fountain Hills Christian Center (FHCC).
The purpose of life as a teenager goes far beyond the party this weekend, or the next paycheck from that minimum wage job or the next relationship or the next 100 friends on Facebook. Serving Jesus as a teenager is a time to gain strong foundations to carry you through life. You have a mission to accomplish. You have the unique gift of being a part of the only common funnel of our society. Your public school.
Personal growth comes from more than just personal care but accomplishing the mission right at our doorstep. FHCC youth desire to change the world by reaching their schools and learning what it means to be an active follower of Christ in everything they do now and in all they grow into becoming.
Lion And Lamb
The Battle Cry
Today I am stepping across the line.
I'm tired of waffling and I'm finished with wavering,
I've made my choice, the verdict is in, and my decision
is irrevocable. I'm going God's way.
There's no turning back now!
I will live the rest of my life serving God's purposes
with God's people on God's planet for God's glory.
I will use my life to celebrate his presence,
cultivate his character, participate in his family,
demonstrate his love, and communicate his Word.
Since my past has been forgiven,
and I have a purpose for living,
and a home awaiting in heaven,
I refuse to waste any more time or energy
on shallow living, petty thinking, trivial talking,
thoughtless doing, useless regretting,
hurtful resenting, or faithless worrying.
Instead I will magnify God, grow to maturity,
serve in ministry, and fulfill my mission
in the membership of his family.
Because this life is preparation for the next,
I will value worship over wealth, "we" over "me,"
character over comfort, service over status,
and people over possessions, position, and pleasures.
I know what matters most, and I'll give it all I've got.
I'll do the best I can with what I have for Jesus Christ today.
I won't be captivated by culture,
manipulated by critics,
motivated by praise,
frustrated by problems,
debilitated by temptation,
or intimidated by the devil.
I'll keep running my race with my eyes on the goal,
not the sidelines or those running by me.
When times get tough, and I get tired,
I won't back up, back off, back down, back out, or backslide.
I'll just keep moving forward by God's grace.
I'm Spirit-led, purpose driven, and mission-focused,
so I cannot be bought, I will not be compromised,
and I shall not quit until I finish the race.
I'm a trophy of God's amazing grace,
so I will be gracious to everyone,
grateful for every day,
and generous with everything
God entrusts to me.
To my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I say,
"However, whenever, wherever, and whatever
you ask me to do,
my answer in advance is yes!
Wherever you lead and
whatever the cost I'm ready.
Anytime. Anywhere. Anyway.
Whatever it takes, Lord; whatever it takes!
I want to be used by you in such a way,
that on that final day I'll hear you say,
'Well done, thou good and faithful one.
Come on in, and let the eternal party begin!'"
Today I am stepping across the line.
I Can Feel You Moving
Shelly from Texas
I can feel You moving...
You're coming like a flood...
I'm surrounded by Your beauty
while I'm covered in Your blood.
When the winds of doubt
creep into my head
You come straight to my rescue
and fill me instead
with Your wonderful peace;
so comforting, so sweet!
Pulled in close to Your arms
while I praise you at Your feet!
Oh, Your glorious calm!
So amazingly strong!
You show me as I cry for You
that You've been here all along!
And now up to the top
You're filling me with You.
And I'm shocked by the intensity
of the joy that You renew.
Like a cool wind of relief
in the blister of high noon;
is how it feels to know that You
are on Your way back soon!
I look up in amazement
as I can finally see
Your umbrella of protection
that has always covered me!
