Getting There – Disco-vering Jesus

Last Friday March 12th, the ROLIM Youth gathered together as a group at the ROLIM Sanctuary for a sleepover to prepare themselves for the upcoming DISCO-vering Jesus youth event.  Though, it was informal and short-noticed, it was a great opportunity that God granted them to prepare their work for the Lord. The purpose of the sleepover was to practice the program and the presentation for the April 3rd event. 

The sleepover began with the Youth Praise team leading the youth in praise and worship with a couple of songs. Everyone felt the presence of God through the Holy Spirit’s moving.  Afterwards, Pastor Shane gave the youth a short preaching.

Pastor’s preaching touched on the influences that affect the youth of today, temptation in the secular life. Pastor asked the question; “who is more vulnerable to temptation Christians or non-Christians?” Everyone had their own opinion, some favoured non-Christians while others said Christians. The answer was surprising. One of the youth members stated that Christians are more vulnerable to temptation rather

than non-Christians, because they haven’t experienced the secular life, thus, they are curious to experience and try secular things. This thought strucked the minds of the youth and they paid full attention to the preaching.

Pastor Shane’s powerful message led them to the altar to get even more closer to the manifestation of God’s presence through the Word. Pastor Shane and the elders prayed over each youth and anointed them with oil. The youth gathered in groups of three to pray for each other, the success of the Disco-ver Jesus event, and the Church. It was a very powerful prayer session.

The energy continued as the group got ready to practice for their dance and song number. The youth separated into their respective group, the dance group and the live band group, and began their practice. It was a pleasure to see every youth active and involve in their groups. They were eager to practice and learn new dance routines and songs. The practice went quite well with the guidance of the Lord.

As the night continued, everyone prepared themselves to go to sleep, and  ended the night watching the movie, Avatar, on the big screen. Everybody slept late, but nonetheless had an enjoyable and blessed night. The next morning began late, as everyone was tired from the late night movie. The youth gathered in the kitchen to eat breakfast and enjoyed each other’s fellowship. It was a good breakfast served by Tita Sherly, Tita Glo, and Pastor Shane. And everyone was full. Now it’s time to be filled by the Holy Spirit.

Once again, the youth gathered at the Sanctuary for morning praise and worship. The youth praise team led the group with a couple of songs. The youth formed groups to pray once again for each other, the success of the event, and the church, and practiced their special performances. They worked hard and did a good job with the short time they had. Before they knew it, it was time to head home after a good sleepover at the church. Each one enjoyed each others company and fellowship. It was a good way to start the March Break with friends and the Lord. The Rolim  youth is becoming more active and everyone is participating.
