Growing up I always appreciated the faith of my grandparents and my parents. Because of their example I knew that living in a relationship with God through Jesus Christ was the most important thing. I have always appreciated my family’s faith legacy as it has served me well in my own faith journey. Even today I call upon their examples in my life to help me try to continue that legacy to my children and now grandchild. We as a church also have both benefited from and have an opportunity to build a legacy. One of the things I want most for my life is to finish well, having left a kingdom legacy for those who are yet to come. In this “Step Up for the Next Up” program we have an opportunity to invest in the next generations. The truth is most of us won’t be remembered for what we accomplished or how much we acquired but rather how much we invested in those we love. So I am asking you to prayerfully consider making a sacrificial gift to the new “Family Ministry Zone” here at SeaCoast Grace Church. Included in this project will be a completely remodeled children’s building, a green space for our children to play on, an outdoor gathering place for young families and a patio/gathering place for our youth and young adults. We really do believe that God cares about the next generations and we want you to care too. Thank you for giving this serious prayer and thought. I know that you will be generous and then be generously blessed as a result.
Can you imagine choosing who you were going to marry before the age of 12? Most young people today are waiting until they are 30 to make such a big decision. What may be surprising to you is that most people make an even bigger decision than that before they hit their teen years… whether or not they will accept or reject Christ. Statistics have consistently shown that 80% of adult Christians were actively involved in church before the age of 12. It’s overwhelming to think that the most important decision we will ever make happens before we even hit our teen years. We see this as an opportunity, because if we can get serious about and invest in the next generation of children we can instill in them a faith that lasts a lifetime. You will make a lot of investments throughout your life. Some will succeed and some will fail. We believe the investment into the spiritual lives of the next generation is one that has an eternal impact.
God is leading us to prepare and equip the NEXT generation
We hope that you are excited about what God is doing in the next generation at our church. As you know, we're all in this together, so if SeaCoast Grace Church is your home, we strongly encourage you to get involved.
