With a bad case of the Monday blues and the prospect of four long days to complete the week, most kids cannot wait to get to Young Life club on Monday night. Club is a safe place where Young Life leaders and High School kids sing at the top of their lungs, play silly games and laugh together until it hurts. At the end of each club, a volunteer leader proclaims the Gospel in a way kids relate to.
Our favorite club at W.T. White Young Life this semester was the night we talked about the cross. Specifically, we shared how Jesus Christ volunteered to take our sin on the cross and die because of His great love for us. After, kids got to write down the things in their life that they felt separated them from Jesus and were given the opportunity to nail their 'sins' to a cross built by some friends of Young Life. That night our friends experienced taking their sin to the cross and found freedom in Christ. It was a beautiful thing to be a part of.
Young Life club is so much fun for everyone involved but takes a lot of planning and resources. Often, teams spend the whole week gathering supplies, practicing skits and studying the Word of God to prepare for the weekly club talk. In North Dallas, we can always use prayer but would ask you to consider giving to help with the cost of Young Life club.
We have an amazing core of leaders that span almost ten different programs. Each ministry is different and requires different materials to set up. Whether it is costumes for a skit, supplies for a game or a handmade wooden cross, these materials have a cost. All of these items add value to club and the experience kids have to hear the good news of Jesus.
