Evening worship has been a fruitful time for Bouncers this week. It has been a time for them to connect with God and to connect with other students. On Wednesday, Bouncers were able to participate in Concert of Prayer where they prayed individually and in groups. Students praised the Lord through songs and prayers of adoration and thanksgiving. Youth group leaders also had the opportunity to pray over each on of their students. While many youth group leaders have been praying to God for their students for some time, for many students, this may be the first time they’ve heard someone pray over them; this was a powerful moment! One student even gave her life to Christ!
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sister, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God--this is your true and proper worship.” Romans 12:1
While Bouncers have had the opportunity to worship each night through song, prayer, and the reading of God’s word, Bouncers have also been able to worship God through the work they’ve been doing in the Dickinson area. Students have been able to worship the Lord by sacrificing a week of their summer to help restore hope to the homeowners who are still struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Students worshiped the Lord this week by repairing roofs, installing sheet rock, and laying tile. It is our prayer that students would continue to worship in everything they do, with their bodies and with their life, even after Bounce ends.
