4.12 Youth (11 - 17yrs)
We are sorry to announce that 4:12 Group is currently closed until further notice.
After many years of successful and fruitful operation, Youth attendance in the 4:12 group has declined to the stage where we've had to cancel more and more sessions as each week passes. Leaders remain enthusiatic to continue so, it's with heavy hearts that we have taken this decision.
The new format for 4:12 Youth Group is slowly evolving into a new dimension - Jade chose some great worship songs to get us started last week and that will continue this coming week as others get the opportunity to make their choices. Ian led a fun time of teaching in the story of David & Goliath which reminded us of another comedian wearing similar head gear!
This Sunday we also look forward to PIZZA in celebration of a special birthday which we missed the week before!
We are also developing ideas for three new projects to execute during 2019 - why not come along and join the fun?
4:12 Group really excelled themselves this Christmas by setting off on a very ambitious project to replicate the 1984 Band Aid hit, "Do They Know it's Christmas?" Will church members help to get the project off the ground? Well, here's the result, judge for yourself!
Origin of the Name
The name of the group, 412, originates from scripture:
Ephesians (4.11) APOSTLES, PROPHETS, EVANGELISTS PASTORS & TEACHERS,
Ephesians (4.12) TO EQUIP HIS PEOPLE FOR WORKS OF SERVICE, SO THAT THE BODY OF CHRIST MAY BE BUILT UP.
Our Young Adults need a grounding in the five ministries with the result of Ephesians 4:12-32 being brought to fulfilment in them. Our future Prophets, Apostles, Teachers, Evangelists and Pastors are developing in these Young Adults! We expect that the ‘412’ will minister to their friends and others, and equip themselves for ministry in the Kingdom of Christ.
The group is open to all 11 year old to 17 year olds who wish to come along and hear about Jesus.
Its Mission is to reach the Youth of Felixstowe and share the gift that Christ has given for all. Freedom from Sin and relationship with GOD.
In today’s society and the world in general, never has it been harder to spread the Gospel and reach this generation.
Our current 412 is a small group but is ALREADY very diverse. God has shown us that He will give us bigger works after we get the little works right, we must step out in faith!
So what are we, as the Church Team, called by God to do?
Pray for growth and blessings upon the Children; for more leaders and assistants as we grow.
Get stuck in!! Youth are complex and they can tell if you aren’t committed and don’t value them.
Respect them and listen to them.
Seek out new ways to train and equip these Young Adults and to prepare for an influx of Youth from Felixstowe.
Have a vision and Dream BIG!
