“Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
- Hebrews 10:26
People need other people. That’s just the way we’re made. We have this inner longing for friendships. But our friendships can be a negative influence on our lives as well as a positive one. A common faith, and its accompanying values, is an important factor in building positive relationships.
In almost every town, there is a group of people your age that meets to share common beliefs. That kind of friendship is called fellowship. These meetings are usually very positive and are all about building God-centred relationships and friendships.
A youth group is designed to offer a cool place to hang out and be surrounded by people who have a common relationship with God.
If you want to add a great dimension to your friendships, look for an active youth group, and then get involved. How do you find one? Ask your friends. Look for the ads in your newspaper. Ask a family member.
You need the group, and the group needs you!
