Welcome to Macedonia Youth Ministry Building Youth to Meet the Challenges of Today and Tomorrow... Min. Debra Singleton Servant Leader Sis Rita McDougald Asst. Servant Leader
Message from the Ministry • Macedonia has one of the most vibrant and active youth ministries. The ministry is based upon ensuring our youth ages 12-18 are physically, academically, socially and spiritually (PASS) challenged to be at their very best. The ministry seeks through Bible-based study, outreach opportunities, academic workshops and cultural enrichment to grow young people to be productive Christians in a changing world.
Message from the Ministry • As you peruse through this booklet, you will see our youth active in numerous service outreach ministry efforts. It is through their visits to the Macon Outreach Ministry, Mid-State Baptist Association, Macon Rescue Mission & Bargain Center, Convalescent Homes, and Loaves & Fishes they are committed to Matthew 25:35-36-- for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’
Message from the Ministry • It is through Bible study on Sundays and Wednesdays that they are challenged to grow in the Word. Yes, our youth are like buds blossoming into strong, courageous young Christians who are willing to take a stand for their faith and most of all for Jesus Christ. Truly, they are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We ask that you encourage our youth, speak a kind word, and offer guidance when needed. Thank you Youth Ministry Servant Leaders
