Summer is a wonderful fruit-bearing season indulging us with assorted tasty fresh fruits and vegetables. A new creative youth project for bearing good fruits entitled “Good Fruit” ripened this summer in Kiev Jewish Messianic Congregation! And now every boy and girl of our Congregation may become a “good fruit” on a God’s branch by standing united in doing all kinds of good things.
“Good Fruit” is a union of KJMC youth ministries. This is the project where young people can share their experience and ideas, develop together, help each other and of course hang out together.” – shared the ideological inspirers of the project, KJMC ministers. – “We think that the youth can be and must be fruitful in ministry. That is why we decided to create the platform where we (all youth ministries of the Congregation) can undertake mutual projects for young people. It will help to achieve a greater unity among KJMC youth and therefore a greater fruit. Our desire is for both: the ones who are in some ministry and those who did not come up with a ministry yet to be easier and more interesting to develop, find new forms of ministry, and grow in God.”
The primary goals for the new youth project to achieve are as follow: assistance in building up and motivating new youth ministers; mutual help in youth ministries (which are many in the Congregation); assistance in achievement of organizational and creative skills of the youth, as well as building and maintenance of friendly relations with the youth from other churches by carrying out mutual interesting activities.
The main idea of “Good Fruit” was both explained and presented at the creative fruit party organized by KJMC. The Fruit party in keeping with the best traditions of the Hawaiian parties cheered everyone with tasty food, worship dances to live music and joyful fellowship. As the party coincided with Friday night -Erev Shabbat, together they lit the Shabbat candles with prayer and welcomed Shabbat.
The next “Fruit meetings” are already planned to be held in the beginning of autumn: a party in a new format, as well as a big youth forum for sharing experience, praying and fellowship. Stay tuned!
