Tuesday Evening Youth Service

Prelude: A young men’s brass group played “The Way of the Cross Leads Home” and “When We All Get to Heaven.” The choir then sang “Hosanna (Praise Is Rising).”

Featured Testimonies: Caleb Copko said all it took was a simple prayer by his parents’ bed for Jesus to come into his heart, and that he is thankful God leads and guides in situations that are unclear. Hunter Cripps thanked God for saving and sanctifying him, and said he is grateful that even though the future is unknown, he can be confident God will be there. Emmaline Worthington said she was thankful that she could attend the West Coast Youth Challenge and was blessed by the conversations she had. Annika Ewers gave thanks for being saved for one year and that she also received her sanctification and baptism last year. She gave God praise for being able to communicate with Him all throughout the day, not just during devotional times.

First Special: A young men’s quartet sang “His Love.”

Last Special: Savannah Lee sang “How Deep the Father’s Love.”

Sermon: Erik Calhoun read from Ephesians 3:17-19, saying that even though people cannot understand everything about the Gospel, God gives the knowledge needed to make Heaven.
