The Ocean View Baptist Church Youth Group is camping at the Free Methodist Church property on Davis Street this week. The group is under the supervision of Aaron and Katy Dininny. Aaron is the youth pastor at Ocean View Baptist, and grew up in Youngsville.
The teens have visited several area attractions, and are spending time each day ministering to the community by conducting Bible schools, doing construction work, and helping local churches with ongoing ministries. The group will be breaking camp and heading home on Saturday morning.
Teens are invited to play "Secret Church!" at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 23, at the Davis Street pavilion, Youngsville.
Secret Church is a game. Secret church is a reality. Secret Church is worship.
The Otterbein United Methodist Church and the Free Methodist Church are combining with Ocean View Baptist church of Norfolk, VA to give teens a dose of reality. Churches all over the world do not have the benefit of meeting in a secure building.
Often, Christians have to risk their lives to worship Jesus. This is not a reality for us, but on this night it will be. Through a challenging game that will illustrate the difficulties of trying to "do church' in many foreign nations, participants will be putting together a "risky" worship service. Pastor Rick Hamrick said, "Invite your friends to this free event and we'll have a lot of fun, and God will be glorified through a great game and powerful worship!"
