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
=>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)
