Welcome to Youth Group
It is important for youth to grow their faith through fellowship with peers. In this group, most weeks we will dive deeper into Pastor Wendy's scripture lesson prior to her sermon on Sunday. We will dive deep into the scripture in creative ways, including through games and discussion. The group meets in person, via Zoom and via a private Facebook group. For added privacy, registration is required in order to receive the information about connecting through Zoom and Facebook.
Youth group follows a monthly rotation:
1st Wednesday of each month: We will meet in person and share a meal that is served following COVID-19 protocols.
2nd and 3rd Wednesdays of each month: We will meet via Facebook Live followed by a Zoom meeting.
4th Wednesdays of each month: We will serve a meal at Wednesdays Table. Meet at Christ Lutheran Church in Menomonie; bring a mask and baseball hat.

By persevering and overcoming obstacles, Moses and the Israelites were able to cross the red sea to safety.
Think of a time that you were able to persevere and overcome an obstacle in your way. You may think of a time that you have sinned. Write them down on a small piece of paper and with permission from your adult you can burn the paper and watch the sin or obstacle disintegrate. This is symbolic to Moses raising his staff and the red sea parting for the Israelites and then falling back after the Israelites passed.
Listen to this song and remember to embrace the differences in everybody and remember to treat everyone as an equal:

Psalm 105:1-6, 37-45
Manna???? -Hebrew translation is "What is it?"
The Israelites became weary and fearful that they would starve to death in the desert and started questioning God. God provided for them what they needed and also tested them to see if they would follow his word and trust him.
Give God thanks for the food and harvest every day.
How does gratitude spill over to service??
Write a list of all the people you trust. Out of those people how many are not immediate family? Did you put God?
