Burks YOUTH 30 hour famine!
November 18 & 19

 

 

What Is It?

We don’t think it’s right that nearly 7,000 kids are dying every day because of hunger — so we’re doing something about it through World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine!

 

 

 

How Does the Famine Work?

1. Students LEARN the truth about global hunger and discover what God wants us all to do about it.

2. We RAISE FUNDS to fight hunger (that’s where YOU come in).

3. We grow closer to God and each other as we FAST FOR 30 HOURS.

4. LIVES ARE CHANGED because of the money we’ve raised!
 
How Can I Help?

1. Give. Every $40 we raise can help feed and care for a child for one month. Make checks out to World Vision and give them to Casandra or donate online HERE 

2. Volunteer. There are many ways you can help. Join us for all or part of the event.

3. Pray. Ask God to bring us together and to help those in need every day.

Who are we?

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known.” 1 John 3:2a

In Luke 10:29 a Jewish scholar asks Jesus “Who is my neighbor?” This seems like a simple question, but it sparks Jesus to tell one of the most well-known parables in the Bible- that of the Good Samaritan. We call our weekly youth worship “Neighbors of Christ” or NoC because we believe that welcoming the stranger and caring for each other are the most important ways we show our faith.

With help from our adult mentors, NoC explores ideas, values, and scripture in order to grow into the people God wants us to be. We know that questions and doubts are part of a maturing faith, and we welcome respectful discussion about any topic. Burks Youth Ministry offer something for every teen- from Bible study to debates on current events. YOU are welcome in Burks Youth!

Confirmation at Burks
Beginning September 6:  Meal 5:30-6:15 small group confirmation class 6:30 
Leaders: Mike and Susan Acuff
 
CONFIRMATION FAQS:
  • Burks Youth uses CREDO confirmation resources, and it references the United Methodist Church history and polity. 
  • http://www.youthministrypartners.com/credo
  • The main purpose of Confirmation is to provide a solid, Biblical platform of understanding to teens so that they can make a decision of their own to decide to publicly confirm their faith in Jesus Christ. 
  • If a student has not been baptized, they will have the opportunity to be baptized either at the Confirmation service, or in an arranged service at Chickamauga Lake. The UMC does not rebaptize. 
  • Students do not have to attend Burks UMC to participate in confirmation, but they are strongly encouraged to join BurksYouth. A natural part of the faith journey is becoming an active participant in a faith community. Students will have the opportunity to unite with Burks UMC at the time of confirmation, in consultation with their family.
  • Ms. Casandra Karl, Youth Ministry Director, and The Rev. Dr. Tony Collins, Senior Pastor, approve all curriculum and participate in the Confirmation process and sacrament
  • Regular attendance is important to the success of this process. 
Students will meet on Wednesday Night
Connection schedule for this class. Check Burks.org home page for closure dates due to weather, etc. for WNC news and updates

From Casandra: 
 
You’ve probably had an experience or two that has taught you the power of a good friendship and the danger of a destructive one. Teenagers sometimes have difficulty seeing the way their friendships influence them. In this 4-week series, we’ll be discussing how to choose our friends wisely, exploring the qualities of a healthy friendship, encouraging students to build friendships with wise people, and helping them see Jesus as their best and truest friend
