Leading Teens closer to Christ
Come, Don't let anything get in your way !
Lifeteen begins Sundays at 9:15 and ends at 10:30 in the Youth Center
We have outgrown the Youth Center this year for Life Teen. The Catholic Student Center was gracious enough to let us meet in their spacious building for class on Sunday Mornings from 9:15-10:30. The building is located right next to the STAY youth center; on the corner of 17th street and Avenue M.
For the next few weeks we will be looking at Encounters with Jesus in the New Testament: The Samaritan Woman encounter with Christ; Zacchaeus encounter with Christ; Jairus’ encounter with Christ; The Boy with the loaves and fishes encounter with Christ; and Dismus’ encounter with Christ. We will break open the story being sure to understand its details. We will answer the question, “How was that person’s life changed by their encounter with Christ?”
Then, we will answer, “How did this encounter affect the lives of others around them.” Finally, we will answer, “How does this story apply to our lives today?” The youth will be working is small groups so they may better ‘experience’ the story.
With your youth, talk with them about the story they are working on, visit the questions they talked about in class. During the week, read the story with them to see if they ‘discover’ something else. Also, help them discover how the lessons in these story play out in our lives today.
Yours in Christ,
Kathy Boscarino, DRE/YM
