This Week in Youth: 

January 24th- UMYF, 6-7:00pm January 27th- Dayspring, 6:30-7:30pm 

We are currently in the midst of a three week study called Moods. Emotions are a lot, not just for youth but anyone. One thing I want to make clear (out of many things) is that emotions are not a bad thing. Beyond that, no emotion is inherently bad. God designed us with our emotions for a reason. They help us enjoy life, they help us process,

they help keep us safe, and they can be a great equalizer. We all feel things. God’s emotions are all over the pages of the Old Testament, and Jesus’ are contained in the Gospels. Emotions that are handled in a healthy way are great things. 

Scripture for this week: 

“23 He went up from there to Bethel; and while he was going up on the way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him, saying, “Go away, baldhead! Go away, baldhead!” 24 When he turned around and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the Lord. Then two she-bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of  the boys. From there he went on to Mount Carmel, and then returned to Samaria.”

2 Kings 2:23-25
