The Youth Ministry for grades 6-12 at Crawford Baptist is called LINKED. Our goal is to create and strengthen vital relationship connections. Nurturing these bonds are for each individual but also for our group. We need to be LINKED with the Father, our Future, and our Family.
- The primary link on which we focus is with the Father. In our relationship with God, He wants to give us abundant life and eternal life, and we are to give Him worship and service. The more we become like Jesus, the more we glorify God and build up every other important connection.
- We are inevitably linked to our Future; but what our future becomes hinges on the choices we make today. Abundant life (a life filled with Joy, Peace and Hope) emerges when we do what is Right, do what is Wise, and do what is Good.
- We should also strive to have healthy unity within our Family. We are called to honor God in our homes, in our church (family of God) and in our community (friends and all mankind). We strengthen these links by behavior based on loving concern, humble service, and wise counsel. Growing the Family of God is also our goal - sharing the truth and love through the gospel of Jesus.
LINKED - He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. Colossians 1:17
