PLC HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH PROGRAM
Friends Intent on Reaching Eternity
Welcome to the PLC FIRE Youth Ministry page! We're so glad you
stopped by. The world has a distorted view of who we are and what we should be
about; and it does not match what God desires for each one of us. In Jesus, God sees
each one of us as His beloved child; and through Christ, we are so much more. Each
one of us is
called to be so much more. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to change
the world for Jesus Christ. Our goal is to help youth and families, through the Holy
Spirit, do just that. FIRE youth ministry strives to prepare, nurture and equip youth and
adults to be Christian leaders prepared for service, living a life of faith, beyond this time
and place.

Peace Lutheran Church's FIRE Youth Ministry exists to
extend Jesus' love to all senior
high school students, to help them
grow in their relationship with the Lord, to praise
and
honor God in Christian service, and to care for one another.

=>What do these
words mean? I'm glad you asked. The above statement is the reason
our youth ministry exists. This statement is built around the five purposes found in the
Great Commandment of loving God and neighbor (Matthew 22:37-40); and the Great
Commision of making disciples, baptizing and teaching them found in Matthew
28:19-20.

=>
Extend is our word for evangelism; sharing the Good News of Jesus with those
who don't yet have a personal relationship with Him.
"Go therefore and make disciples of
all nations" (Matthew 28:19)

=>Grow is our word for discipleship; the building up or strengthening of belivers in
their quest to be like Christ.
"Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and
go on to maturity" (Hebrews 6:1)

=>
Praise and Honor are our words for worship; celebrating God's presence and
honoring Him with our lifestyle.
"Present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and
acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship" (Romans 12:1).

=>
Service is our word for ministry; meeting need with love. God has blessed every
believer with special gifts to be used for ministry.
"No one has ever seen God; if we love
one another, God abides in us and His love is perfected in us" (1 John 4:12)

=>
Care is our word for fellowship; when youth and families are known, cared for, held
accountable and encouraged in their spiritual journey.
"So then you are no longer
strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the
household of God" (Ephesians 2:19)
