YTH Parent Newsletter November 2020

Hello Parents!

It's hard to believe that we are already wrapping up October and moving into our favorite season, the Holidays! We have so much to celebrate from our last month of ministry!! MYC looked quite different this year but it was just as amazing as usual, River Valley YTH had the opportunity to livestream the event to over 20 locations around the state and over 3,000 students participated! From our powerful, relevant, and timely Haunted Heart series to a unique & unifying MYC, God spoke and students received something FRESH.


November Series | Plot Twist

This month, we are starting a brand new series called "Plot Twist". The goal of this series is to remind students that we serve a God who is NOT bound by logic, circumstance, or even reality... we serve the God known for the most epic PLOT TWISTS! We will be teaching from the stories in scripture where God does the unexpected! Whether it's Elijah fighting with the Prophets of Baal, the Israelites desperate on the shores of the Red Sea, or the Widow and her seeming lack of oil, God did the impossible. It's in the moments when all hope seems lost, when faith is tested to its limits, that God shows up and does the unexpected! We want students to remember that we serve a God of divine intervention, limitless power, and endless grace and mercy towards those who love Him. We cannot wait to inspire and encourage your students this month with this series!


Coinciding with our Miracle Offering from the weekend, River Valley YTH will have our Miracle Night during service on Wednesday November 18th. Every penny raised at YTH is sent to missionaries around the world so they can bring the light of the Gospel to the darkest places on earth. Our partnering organization, Speed the Light, turns our generosity into tangible resources that our missionaries need to accomplish the work they are called to. We consider it an honor & privilege to GIVE BIG as a YTH family so our missionaries can reach those we can't.

If you can't make it to give on the 18th, no problem! You can give to Speed the Light anytime by texting YTHKB to 94000. Thank you for helping us reach our goal and the lost through your generosity!
