Is to Give the Teens a great Foundation of "Hope" in the Resurrection of Jesus the Christ. To "Grow" our Teens into the person that God has created them to be, through the Power of Christ's salvation. "Sharing" their hope with the world by "Living it out". "if you Live it out others will see it, when they see it they will want it. If they want it, they will get it, If they get it they will have it, if they have it they will Live It Out!"
Hoping, Growing, And Sharing In-order to Live it Out
The Ripple is the name of HopeSpring's youth Group. There are a few reason why we are called the Ripple, have you ever thrown a stone in the water? When the Stone hits the water a ripple starts to expands out! The rock effects the body of water 100X the size of the Rock. This is the challenge for the Ripple, to be a positive influence for all who encounter to effect the community where God has Planted us. Remember the Pool of Bethesda, Jesus visits this Pool that was rumored to heal people when an angel touched the pool it rippled out and whoever would touch the water would be healed just as Jesus came to the pool and healed the man that have been waiting for years. Jesus touch our hearts and now we are like that Ripple effecting the world arounds us. The Question is
"How far will your Ripple go?"
To the Parents
Raising children is a blessing given by God. It would be a honor to work along side all of you in building them up in the Lord. Teaching them Theology so they can better understand God. helping them know who God is and how much he loves them. My hope for your children is that through the teachings and the many events we have planned they will learn how important it is to follow Jesus so they will be a positive Ripple in the World. And that they know how special and loved they are to God.
