Hey everyone. I thought now was the time to make this public. No, I am not leaving the ministry or anything like that. Here is part of a letter I typed up explaining what is going on.
It is with a heavy heart that I write this. For almost seven years, our Thursday nights here at Magalia Pines Baptist Church have always been youth group night. Throughout those years, we have seen our share of ups and downs both in attendance and in spirit. However, recently in our history, it seems that Thursday nights have lost any sort of direction and purpose. This decline, along with a lack of personnel to make this event successful, has presented me with the difficult decision of putting our Thursday night meetings on hiatus. This break is only temporary. Hopefully, within in a few months we will once more be able to make Thursday nights a home to our youth ministry. We will still continue all of our other activities including our Jr. High groups on Wednesdays, our High School small group on Friday nights, and our normal Sunday events. For now though, Thursday night youth group is canceled indefinitely. If you have and needs or questions about this please call me.
Again, this break is only temporary. To be quite honest, I take no pleasure in my decision but some changes definitely need to take place. If anyone has any questions, comments, needs, or concerns please do not hesitate to call or send a message to me. I am always available to pray for something and to talk if need be.
Thank you. My prayer is that God's will be sought and glorified throughout all of this. Your prayers are requested and appreciated.
