Friends of 1010: August Newsletter

Dear 1010 Family & Friends,

I hope the first week(s) of school is going well for you and your family! I still remember how exciting (and nerve-racking) the start of a new school year can be. Students, please know that we are praying for you as you begin this new chapter! It may be a new year, a new building and new challenges – but God is still the same. The same God that brought you through every year up until now is still with you and we can find comfort from His promise in Deuteronomy 31:6 –

 “For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”

As we transition into the fall, 1010 Youth Group is going to look and feel different than it has in the past. At this time, we will no longer have our weekly Wednesday night meetings (until further notice). I know this is a big change. One of the key aspects I have enjoyed about 1010 (both as a student and leader) is our weekly meetings together. With all of the changes that have been taking place within the leadership of our church, it has made it very hard for us to continue to provide youth group as usual. At this point in time, I cannot say for certain when youth group will resume or what it will look like when it does. However, I am trusting that God is at work in our church and our community; let us continue to trust and seek after Him together in the weeks ahead.   
I hope you will continue to allow us to be involved in your student’s life – whether by supporting them at sporting events, band concerts, fundraisers, etc. or through staying in touch with them via social media. Although we will not be having our “traditional” Wednesday night meetings, we hope to still connect with our current students through small groups and weekend events! We are currently praying about what this will specifically look like, but the important thing for you and your student to know is that we are not going anywhere. We very much want to continue to provide opportunities for students to continue to grow in their relationships with God and with each other.
Please know that you and your student(s) are always welcome to reach out to me!
In Christ,
Mary Kate Browning
