    Youth Pastor Search Team Prayer Request

    Please remember to pray as we search for a new youth pastor. We have reached out to various organizations, placed our need for a youth pastor on several websites, and spoken to key individuals about our desire to find a youth pastor. Our team was advised that this request is hard to fulfill right now. But God can make this happen, so we cannot become discouraged. “When God's people and the world see something only God can do, they come to know God.” This is a quote from the women's bible study class, Experiencing God. Our goal is to provide our youth with godly leadership. Thanks to the Athertons and several others who are stepping up in the interim. God will provide; we will wait on his timing and continue to pray. Even though this is proving to be difficult; we will experience something that only God can provide.
