Have you heard? The Church has announced the mutual theme for 2017 and I am all kinds of excited over here. I won’t keep you in suspense and you can definitely go and read the announcement here, but the scripture for the church’s youth programs in 2017 is:
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea drive with the wind and tossed.” – James 1: 5-6
This scripture has so much meaning in our church, but I love that the focus is on encouraging youth to pray. Not only is prayer essential for gaining a testimony and finding out for oneself if the church is true, but a connection with God is something absolutely necessary to guide us through life, help us resist temptation, and overcome trials. Such a good theme! And my mind is already in full-blown brainstorm mode on prayer and how to incorporate it into this year’s design.
If you’ve purchased the theme kit and posters in year’s past, you can expect the same great stuff in the 2017 theme kit with a few extra items! If you’re new around here, or want to take a look at the 2016 theme kit so you know what to look forward to you can do that here. The 2016 theme kit and poster pack are still available in our shop if you’re looking to add something in for the remaining months of 2016.
