The Ministries of Generation Next
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.
Do what it says.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
Gospel for Asia Missionary Support – Nandru Mohanrao
Compassion International Support – Elipido Devarlis Tabun
Every month each youth member is asked to donate $3.00 toward supporting our missionary from Gospel for Asia as well as our child from Compassion International. Mohanrao resides in India and is dedicated to spreading the Word of God throughout his native country. Elpido is eight years old and lives in Indonesia. We help Epido attend Bible school, regular school and to get proper nutrition and medical care.
Our youth group has sponsored 2 spaghetti dinners that have hosted our church family and community. At each event we raised over $500 that was donated to such organizations as International Justice Mission, Blood: Water Mission, International Students Inc., and a Christian orphanage in Israel.
Our last spaghetti dinner (5/30) was a great success! We raised over $1750 that was divided up and given to three very worthy organizations. Visit the sites below and see the wonderful things that each of these groups do to minister to people in need!
Violence Against Women of the Congo
Water Relief Fund
Spread the Word (Through used Bibles)
Generation Next has collected old Bibles and distributes them at various events.
Street Talk (Honk for Jesus Ministry)
Through the implementation of 2 X 3 foam boards, we have created a series of signs that minister to the general public. These events are invigorating for all who participate!
Coffee Hour Support
The youth group hosts the Sunday Coffee Hour several times a year by bringing in homemade items, setting up the event, serving, and cleaning up.
This includes picture taking at meetings and events, creating posters with Biblical messages, the creation of our newsletter, our advertising committee (commercials for younger youth at Sunday School), and a video creation team. Many of these ministries are new and we are excited about getting them off the ground and producing fruit for the glory of God!
Members learn and participate in creating scarves for the homeless and needy people of Buffalo.
Generation Next walks the neighborhood praying for homes and families in our local area.
