A Note from the Director of Youth & Families

Isaiah 41:10 tells us that God is always there. There’s no place too far away from Him. There is no place where you can go that He doesn’t care and see you. God loves you, cares about you, and wants to help you through whatever it is that you face.

Right now, it might feel like you’re going through the most difficult thing you’ve ever faced. It might cause you to wonder if God is really there, or if He cares. The truth is, He’s there. He sees your pain, He sees you and loves you. He wants to sit with you in the middle of your storm.

That’s the God we serve. He’s not a God who is far away from us, hoping that one day we will figure it out on our own. No, He’s right there, ready to lead the way, show us what to do, give us wisdom on how to make our situation better and comfort us in the midst of whatever we go through.
