“Constantly looking back to the cross”
You know that favorite song that you just can’t seem to get out of your head? The one you can’t stop singing? The one you blast loudly on repeat in your car, then blast loudly in your house? The one you innately learn every word of, and quickly becomes your “anthem song?” That’s what we want the gospel to be to our students. We want to mimic the Apostle Peter in his encouragement to “not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.” (2 Peter 1:12)
The vision of Rewind is to create an environment for teens that makes much of Jesus and constantly revisits what was accomplished for them on the cross. Our desire is to help students realize the work that was done there, and the fact we weren’t worthy of it, in hopes that it so impacts the students, that it changes their way of thinking and living as believers, reminding them that we are all examples of GRACE.
In seeing ourselves as receivers of grace, we can begin to love, serve, and show it to others. Not only because we’re told to, but because when we look back at what Christ did for us when we weren’t worthy, we realize we don’t have the right not to.
Rewind will kick off for the 2022/23 school year on September 14! The youth ministry meets mostly every week on Wednesday nights, from 6:45-8:30 pm, and is open to 6th-12th grade students.
