The First Third of Life, Your First Impression of the World
We all know the importance of a first impression. As kids, we all learned about strong handshakes and heard, “First impressions are the most lasting,” and “You don’t get a second chance at a first impression.”
Think of all the firsts in your life: your first best friend, your first day of school, your first car, your first job. And on a deeper level, your first understanding of family and your parents’ love, your first experience of God’s grace, your first connections with neighbors and your community.
Now, think of how all of those firsts played a part in who you are today—how you think and act, how you experience joy and hardship, and how you seek and understand God.
The vast majority of these experiences occur during “the first third of life”—the time from childhood through young adulthood when we all develop our first impressions of how the world works and how we fit into God’s plans for it.
The Pentecost Offering Is Your Chance to Help Make the Best Impression Possible
The ministries supported by the Pentecost Offering provide positive, faith-filled mentorship, experiences, and service—to support children, youth, and young adults as they grow and encourage them to consider what God has in store for their lives.
The men’s group is looking for feedback and help in shaping our future. So, we ask all men of the church to take a few minutes of their time and fill out our survey. It’s very important to hear from as many of you as possible! We look forward to having a great time together and doing the work of the Lord!
