4twelve is our 6th-12th grade youth ministry. 4twelve meets on Saturday nights from 6:30-8:00PM. 4twelve gets its name from 1Timothy 4:12 that reads, "Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, life, love, faith and purity." These are 4twelve's values.
Psalm119:71-176, Matthew 12:36-37, Romans 10:17, Ephesians 4:29
As Christians the words we say and how we say them is important. Our words are for encouraging and building one another up in Christ. To set a Godly example in our speech is to always glorify the Lord with what we say to our brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as to those who don’t know God. We are also commissioned by Jesus to use our speech to tell the world about Him!
Philippians 2:12-15, James 1:22-25, 1John 2:3-6
We don’t want to cheat ourselves by only hearing and reading God’s word. We must live His word out! We want our lives to show others that our God is a loving God and wants to work through His people. The greatest example of how to live this way is Jesus.
Mark 12:28-34, John 13:35, John 15:13, Philippians 2:3-5
Jesus tells us that loving God first and loving others as we love ourselves are the most important commandments. The way we are identified is by our love for one another. We are to serve one another by setting aside our wants and needs for our friends. Let’s consider others more important than us, and by this, display Jesus to the world.
Hebrews 11:1, James 1:5-8, James 2:15-17
Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we don’t see. Let’s set this example by placing our faith in Jesus and living it out! It’s so important to live out our faith daily. Without action Scripture calls our faith dead. Let’s add our faith to our actions and watch God do amazing things.
Mat. 5:14-16, Ro. 6:12-23, Gal. 6:1-4, Ja. 1:17, 1Peter 5:6-11, 1Jn.1: 5
Our bodies are to be used as instruments to do what is right for the glory of God. Pay careful attention to honor God in your purity. You are not alone in your struggles! Light is pure of all darkness. We are called by Jesus to be the light of the world! Let us be pure as He is pure!
