first F.I.S.H. and parents' meeting

What are you passionate about? Chances are you talk about it; you can't help it. Whether it's Ravens football, Band camp, Airsoft weaponry, or the latest novel, you naturally talk and exude excitement about whatever you love. What if we loved God so much that we couldn't help but talk about him? That's what evangelism is like. A person whose heart is so captivated by Christ that he or she can't help but talk about the Lord.
This year in F.I.S.H. (fellowship in studen'ts homes) we'll be training high school students for evangelism just like we have in the past. This year we'll be working on sharing the gospel in our own words, through our own story, in our own book, speaking out of our own passion for Christ. The first Sunday night of each month we'll be meeting at some student's house to hang, chat, munch, drink, play, write and read. Each youth will be given a journal to practice writing whatever the prompt is for the evening and then...we'll share what we've written.
F.I.S.H. will meet this sunday September 4th from 7-9m at 2608 Amanda Court Woodstock MD 21163. (at Claire's.) It's for high school students though parents are always welcome to come.

Standing Parents' Meeting in the downstairs hallway this Sunday after church.
I wanted a chance to explain to parents what's going on this fall for youth at Liberty and be available to answer questions and hear concerns...and to pray for the youth ministry this fall. So immediately after the worship service this sunday September 4th please come down to the hallway around the youth bulletin board and we will have a brief, standing meeting. I really value your presence and contributions.
