This was Andy and Kara Garner's last Sunday with us  They will be moving to Conroe this week. Andy brought a final message to us this morning.  He spoke to us about "The Role of Adults with Children/Young People in Church".  He reminded us of all the problems that young people struggle with and more importantly what they NEED...
  • Interaction
  • Positive role models
  • Authentic Godly examples
  • Apprenticeship
  • Encouragement/Appreciation/Acknowledgement
  • Invitation to help serve in the congregation
