Hey! How are ya? Welcome to our youth site for Joymount Presbyterian Church in Carrick!
Listen - we know that being a young person in church can be tough. Lots of questions and thoughts flying about in your head:
> What is happening at church that I can get involved in?
> I could do with some help when it comes to reading my bible.
> What is Christianity all about? I don't feel like I know enough!
> What are some of the best new Christian songs and what bands should I have a listen to?
> Are there teams and outreach stuff that I can get involved in?
What we aim to do through this site is to build community between everyone at Joymount youth. To share videos, music, useful resources, big news, photos and more.
At the heart of all these things is the desire that we have to see young people discover the real Jesus, to start a relationship with him, to follow him, to grow with him, to be transformed by him, and then to go and light up the world with his love.
Matthew 5:14-15 (the message)
Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand, shine!
