Welcome to Sunday Morning Youth!
Welcome to this week of Youth Online! It is SO good to have you join us! Check out the video to the right to hear what’s going on and then keep reading! We have a special guest joining us this week too so keep on the look out!
Next week the Green Group is meeting onsite so if that’s you make sure you register!
This term we are looking at how to read the Bible and hear God’s voice from it, and each week we are doing some fun segments as part of our videos! Over the last few weeks, we have seen that, in order to interpret and read the Bible well, we need to know both its context and its genre. Looking for context means that when we read books of the Bible, we need to look at how it fits in with the rest of the Bible, as well as when it was written, who wrote it and why. Finding the genre means that we need to find out what kind of book it is – ie. is it story, poetry, law, a letter, etc. – because, just like how country music is very different to rock music, books of the Bible can be very different too!
This week we are looking at how to read poetry/psalms! When we read poetry in the Bible, it’s important to read them not as things that necessarily tell us facts, but instead to read them as examples for us on how to worship and relate to God. Psalms instruct on us on where our heart should be when it comes to how we live a life of faith.
- In your Bible, read Psalm 23 a few times
- Ask yourself:
- What does this passage tell me about God?
- What does this passage tell me about people?
- What do I think God might be saying to me from this passage?
- Is there anything I can do in response to this passage?

What’s happening this Term?
For term 1 of our Sunday Morning Youth Program, much like last year we are still going to be doing most of our content online with videos and at-home activities, but thankfully, now that some restrictions have eased a little, we can start to meet back at the church again! How awesome is that?!
Unfortunately we can’t all meet together at the same time (because there would just be too many of us!) so what we’ve done is we’ve split you all into 4 groups: Green, Yellow, Red and Blue. Each group will take turns in getting to gather for youth onsite which means that through the term, everyone will get two opportunities to do church in person! Your parents/guardians have been sent those groups so make sure you know when you can come and do youth in person with us at the church! If you have any questions, chuck it in the comment box below and we will get back to you!
If you’ve missed a week of Youth Online, don’t worry! All the videos are up on our PBC Youtube Channel for you to watch whenever you want!
