I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like Him in His death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Philippians 3:10-11 NIV
Leading into the Future
By Pastor Jon Haakana
“How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to Your Word.” Ps. 119:9
About two years ago, I began introducing a plan for leading into our future as a congregation, entitled MOLC 2024. A part of that process was to develop a plan for establishing community in the younger generations, working to retain more of our youth and young adults, and reach out to the youth and young adults of our community. There is such need currently as more and more youth and younger adults are abandoning the church and faith, or those who believe nothing spiritually, or have no religious affiliation whatsoever.
Let me illustrate that for you locally: The average age of a person in our community is now 35. Our congregation median age has been dropping steadily in the last decade. But, the younger the age of a member at Mount Olive, the less likely they are to attend worship. The number of youth age 12-25 who attend worship two or more times in a month is 34 (18 families). The number of youth age 12-25 who attend worship once or less each month is 266 (161 seldom, 105 never).
