May 2017

May is both a very stressful and exciting time for our high school seniors.  These students are finishing last minute papers, preparing for finals and looking at the end of their high school careers. As one chapter of their life is coming to an end, another is beginning.  Their future is wide open with many possibilities.

I am thankful for these students that God has entrusted to us over the years.  We have watched them grow, some from the time they were very little. Many of these students have grown up together. There are pictures of them together as small children at birthday parties and church activities. They grew up in and have participated in the children’s ministry, Christmas programs, led in worship, been involved in VBS, participated in the youth ministry, and went on mission trips.  These students have been a vital part of our church life.

As they move from youth to “young adults” let’s not forget our responsibility to these students.  As graduation approaches, remember to pray for the seniors as they are transitioning in life.  Some of these students will be choosing colleges, some beginning their careers, and some looking at joining the military.  God is opening new opportunities and these students deserve our prayer.

Some of these students will stay in Casper and continue to be involved in our church. It is a joy to look around our church and see many of these former students who are active today in our church. It is important that we help them find new and different places for them to serve in our church. For many, it is a difficult transition from being a youth to the next stage of church involvement.  Statistics show that a majority of these students are leaving the church (up to 90%). We need to help them continue to grow in their relationship with Christ.  God entrusted them to us throughout their childhood and that doesn’t end at graduation.  We still have a responsibility to theses students. 

Seniors, congratulations!  You have reached a milestone in life.  Your future is wide open.  Our prayer is that you follow God as He opens new doors for you.

In Him,

Ed
