This Weeks Youth Focus – 2/2

How do you know when you have become an adult? Is it when you can legally drive a car? Is it when you reach the age 18? Is when you turn 21 and can legally drink alcohol? Or is it after you have had your first sexual experience? One thing is sure: our society, and much of the Christian community, does not have any idea when adulthood is reached much less a system to bring about and celebrate a child becoming an adult.

This Thursday we will compare and contrast the biblical life cycle to the modern secular life cycle. We will examine when the Bible deems an individual to be an adult and how we can practically apply that truth today in a culture that is very different than that of the Bible. We will also discuss the importance of a rite of passage in the life of an individual and how this concept is being applied at Emmaus Christian Fellowship.

I’m really looking forward to discussing this concept with our students and helping them to understand that they are an integral  part of the fellowship that happens in our church.

For more information on our approach to rite of passage see our resource page.
