Youth Ministry - October 2018

One of my favorite times of the year is fall! It brings change and cooler weather. There is nothing like seeing the leaves begin to change and the different colors that they bring. I want to let you know about a few upcoming things happening and one important thing to remember.

Remember: Stay connected! Fall can also bring business of life because you begin to gear up for the holidays and sometimes we can lose focus. Stay connected to your church and those that are going to encourage you and build you up.

Upcoming!
Gumbo Fundraiser: October 21st. This is a cook-off event! We need people to bring gumbo so the masses can decide whose is the best. Sign up by calling the church office or in the welcome center!

5th Quarter: October 26th from “after the game” – Midnight. This will be an open gym time to hang out! We will have food. Remember, if your student is 16 they need to leave by curfew or have someone pick them up!

YEC: Youth Evangelism Celebration in Alexandria, LA is November 18th – 19th. Look for more information about this event in our church announcements

Youth Ministry - September 2018

Whew! School has started and we are in full swing! It’s exciting to come to church and hear about how students are inviting their friends. I am so excited about what God is doing! We’ve begun painting and carpeting classrooms and are giving the youth room a “fresh” look! Swing by and check out the progress! We are praying for God to do incredible things this school year and He already is! It’s a great time to be at Cook!

Youth Ministry - August 2018

What a summer it has been! God is doing a mighty work in the life of our student ministry and church as a whole! I am so excited to be a part of Cook Baptist! Summertime is ending and shortly our students will be returning to school! This brings groans from them but also so many opportunities! We are looking forward to what God has in store this fall! Three things to remember:

  1. Stay Connected – Life gets busy with school starting. There is always something going on. Remember to make your
    students spiritual needs a priority and stay plugged into what is going on here at Cook Baptist.
  2. Deposit Encouragement – School is tough. Studying, papers and projects. Remember to continue to encourage one another. Encouragement drives the boat!
  3. Grow Your Faith – Don’t check out. Look for daily opportunities to grow your faith and your witness and see how God uses you this semester!

Whether you are a grandparent, parent, or student; God has some incredible things in store for you! Stay connected, Deposit
Encouragement, and Grow Your Faith!

Youth Ministry - June 2018

Cook family! Thank you so much for the encouraging words, friendly smiles, and prayers as I become part of the family at Cook Baptist Church! I am so thankful that God has brought me here and I am excited about what He wants to do in the life of this church! We had a great time kicking off the summer and worshipping together with other students at Souled Out Summer. This summer we are “Moving Forward” and talking about what it means to move forward in our faith! I’m excited about “Move Days” where we partner with local ministries and “Move Night” where we are trained to intentionally share our faith. Be on the lookout for details on such things as parents meetings and summer events pertaining to youth ministry! It’s going to be a great summer here at Cook Baptist Church!

In Christ,
Wes Pierce
