ORANGE TIP: A new start

ORANGE TIP: A new start

For some, the end of the year brings an ending to many other things; jobs, school year, sporting groups. For our year 12’s, the end of school is fast approaching and who knows what the future holds. Some will go off to do further study and Uni or Tafe, some may enter a trade, and some may enter straight into the workforce or take a gap year.

But what now? What happens to these young people? Unfortunately most people at that stage in life leave the church.

What are we doing/ what can we do better to keep these young people engaged and feel like they are a part of the church family? Say hi and have a quick chat after church. Ask them questions and get to know them. Find something that interests you both. Run an activity. Invest in them. Be a mentor.

I am so thankful for those who are older in the church that have mentored me, whether in an official capacity or just checking in on me every couple of months.

Who will you invest in?
