Youth Day Programs provide children with an opportunity to step up and learn the inter-workings of the church while also building the strength to do public speaking. These programs teach teamwork, unity and camaraderie. Children are also reminded of the need for punctuality and uniformity.
At these programs the children at as Deacons, Trustees, Sunday School Teachers, Ushers and more. It is a way of training the youth for future roles they may take on inside or outside of the church. Rev. Kortney Haigler, of Trenton, New Jersey, brought the message.
Rev. Kortney Haigler preached a powerful sermon and reminded us that serving God, while the right thing to do, might look "foolish" to others. Rev. Terry L. Baker, Pastor of True Vine, said that "The Church is the Heart of the Community with the Community at Heart." The program was themed "Blood Still Works" and the scripture came from Ephesians 1:7 "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace."The directors of the youth program were Joann Taylor, Heidi Windfield, Adrienne Gray, Addie Wilson, Valerie Hansberry, and CeCe Middleton.
Last Sunday the children from around the community trekked down to First Baptist for "high time" in the Lord. This week it was True Vine time. Next week, all roads lead to 404 West Street: NEW HAVEN MB CHURCH.
