Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 
About Us ~

Who's in youth group?
Students grades 7-12.

When do we meet?
We meet every Sunday at West-Mont Christian Academy on South Hanover Rd. for Bible study along with various events throughout the month.


What are we about?
We are all about seeking Christ first. We learn and discuss the powerful things that God is doing in our group both personally and corporately. GCYM partners with parents to help students (1) establish a relationship with Jesus Christ (2) encourage students to grow in their relationship with Him (3) equip students to live a life in service to Jesus Christ. We believe in an inter-generational church where all ministries come together into a relationship of discipleship that will strengthen their walk with Christ. We want to provide an atmosphere where students can feel safe, welcome, and a part of something bigger than themselves. Our passion is to encourage students to share their love of Christ with their friends.

February 12: Your So Called Life

**TAKEN FROM WWW.JOSH.ORG**

Bible Reading: Matthew 22:34-40

Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest command­ment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself All the other commandments and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40

IF YOUR LIFE were a television show, what would it be like? Friends? Baywatch? My So-Called Life? The Brady Bunch? Or maybe 3rd Rock from the Sun?

If your life had a theme song, what would it be titled? Maybe something like “Insensitive”? Or “Jealousy”? Or maybe “The Great Adventure”? How about “I Get By with a Little Help from My Friends”? Or “Nobody Loves Me But My Mother (and She Could Be Jivin’ Too)”?

If your life were a cable TV channel, would it be more like the Disney Channel, MTV, the Sports Channel, the Comedy Channel, or the boring Documentary Channel?

While it may be fun to come up with answers to those questions, the answers are probably not particularly revealing. But you know what? If Jesus’ life were a television show, it could have only one title-Love. If a hit song were written about his life, it would be called “Love.” In fact, if his life were a tennis game, every point would be love.

Jesus commanded us to love. He said,

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another (John 13:34-35, NIV).

Jesus commanded us to love because he values love. The single greatest characteristic of Jesus’ life, his most important theme, the center of everything he did and said, was love. He left heaven because of love. He became a man because of love. He went around doing good because of love. He even died—and was resurrected—because of love.

Jesus’ words and life made it clear that love is always right. It is right for all people, for all places, and for all times. It is right not only because he commands love and values love, but also because he ultimately is love. Love is a part of his nature and character as God (1 John 4:8, 16). When we love others, even our enemies, we are “acting as true children of [our] Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:45).

REFLECT: The paragraphs above refer to the three “steps” in discerning right from wrong (precept, principle, Person). Look back over today’s reading and identify the precept, the principle, and the person.

ACT: The next time you hear a television theme song, remember the theme of Jesus’ life: love.

PRAY:”Father, I want to love you as your Son, Jesus, has commanded me to do. I want to love the people around me, too. This week help me to show love to_______________________.”

Check out hundreds of devotions for teens, arranged by topic. These online devos will motivate and equip your teens in their everyday walk with God.
Sharing the gospel with someone else is like taking them on a journey with six stops along the way. The evangelist becomes a guide of sorts who brings their fellow sojourners to six stops along the way to pause and ponder the landscape of the story of the Bible, the gospel message. This journey begins in Genesis chapter one with the creation of humanity and concludes with the last chapter of the Bible, Revelation chapter twenty two. In between there are twists and turns, break ups and make ups, mystery and intrigue but the driving message of the plot is that from the ashes of sin comes the redemption of mankind through the death of Christ and His resurrection from the dead.
Tddm.org is a place for teen's & young adults to spend time with God. Whether it be having fun, meeting new friends, reading his Word, passing along His inspiration. Tddm is many things to many different people. To us, Tddm is a place where we like to talk God and help our friends learn what friendship is all about.

Daily Devotionals are posted for daily inspiration laid on the writers heart to pass along to you. Guest devotionals are written by you and are posted throughout the week
