Tonight we spent time thinking about how we face the future with it uncertainties, challenges and expectations through sharing honest stories, inspiring stories, worship, creative stuff, reflective stuff, videos and pudding.
Thanks to those who’s shared the evening with us – it was lovely and you’re awesome!
“Life may not have turned out the way you hoped and planned, it doesn’t make life a disaster and it doesn’t make you a failure.” – Lou.
“Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9
“In this life you will have trouble but take heart for I have overcome the world.” Jesus – John 16:33
If you would like to light a candle and pray for those in Orlando, there will be an opportunity to do that at FNY this Friday – we’ll have a room spare for that purpose if you’d like to come along at any point of the evening (7:30pm-9pm), we’ll also have a time together to pray and light candles this Sunday morning too (10am-11:15am.) Neither require, praying out loud or getting words right – prayer is sharing our hearts with God as he shares his with us. ❤
Our next Ignite focuses on the worries and the pressures of the future. Do we have a perfect picture of what we want it to look like? Do we fear not ticking the success boxes, not being like everyone else? Not achieving what we’d hope to achieve?
With worship songs, creative activities, a chance to stop and reflect, sharing real stories, videos, I will be sharing some of my personal story that I’ve not shared before on this subject before and we’ll start and finish with drinks, doughnuts and cookies 😀
It’s a relaxed atmosphere and all young people and adults are welcome wherever you’re at in your life and faith, we’d love to see you there… there’s no pressure to pray or sing or do anything you’re uncomfortable with. It just an opportunity to spend time together with God, exploring how we face life and the future.
Sunday 26th June: 7pm-8:15pm – St Paul’s Church, Oadby. LE2 4NX
Today we collected together more items to give to the Welcome Project, a project that works with the homeless and asylum seekers in Leicester, this is a cause close to our young people’s hearts and they wrote a letter to go with the items they bought to show they care.
We also had our Q & A session with some awesome questions on big stuff, life and death, equality, what happens to our most desperate prayers, LGBT issues, when Jesus came and why, how we all came to faith – brilliant and honest discussions – fab session 🙂
It was Katie’s birthday so we also celebrated that with breakfast of her choice, we like to celebrate people and their awesome value to us and God – and yes we did put birthday candles in the strawberries! 😉
We’ll continue to tackle some of the questions we didn’t get to on Sunday 19th June 10am-11:15 so feel free to join us 🙂
