Welcome to the PLC FIRE Youth Ministry page! We're so glad you
stopped by. The world has a distorted view of who we are and what we should be about; and it
does not match what God desires for each one of us. In Jesus, God sees each one of us as
His beloved child; and through Christ, we are so much more. Each one of us is called to be so
much more. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to change the world for Jesus Christ. Our
goal is to help youth and families, through the Holy Spirit, do just that. FIRE youth ministry
strives to prepare, nurture and equip youth and adults to be Christian leaders prepared for
service, living a life of faith, beyond this time and place.
Peace Lutheran Church's FIRE Youth Ministry exists to extend Jesus' love to all senior high
school students, to help them grow in their relationship with the Lord, to praise and honor
God in Christian service, and to care for one another.
=>What do these words mean? I'm glad you asked. The above statement is the reason our
youth ministry exists. This statement is built around the five purposes found in the Great
Commandment of loving God and neighbor (Matthew 22:37-40); and the Great Commision of
making disciples, baptizing and teaching them found in Matthew 28:19-20.
=>Extend is our word for evangelism; sharing the Good News of Jesus with those who don't
yet have a personal relationship with Him. "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations"
=>Grow is our word for discipleship; the building up or strengthening of belivers in their quest
to be like Christ. "Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to
maturity" (Hebrews 6:1)
=>Praise and Honor are our words for worship; celebrating God's presence and honoring
Him with our lifestyle. "Present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God,
which is your spiritual worship" (Romans 12:1).
=>Service is our word for ministry; meeting need with love. God has blessed every believer
with special gifts to be used for ministry. "No one has ever seen God; if we love one another,
God abides in us and His love is perfected in us" (1 John 4:12)
=>Care is our word for fellowship; when youth and families are known, cared for, held
accountable and encouraged in their spiritual journey. "So then you are no longer strangers
and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God"
