YOUTH & YOUNG ADULTS MINISTRY
Rev. Toby LeRoy says of that the youth of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church humbly and respectfully reject the idea that they are the church of tomorrow; they believe that they are the church of RIGHT NOW. The youth do not believe that they have to wait to advance the cause of Christ: they want to be a part of the revolution now--today--in our homes, in our schools, and in our everyday lives. They believe that through worship, evangelism, discipleship, fellowship, and ministry, they CAN make a difference in this world.
Our weekly Bible Studies are engineered to help prepare us for the battle ahead, and our discipleship retreats provide in-depth training intended to mold and shape us into the image of Christ. Our mobile house parties are specifically planned to provide opportunities for both fellowship and evangelism. And we are very passionate about missions--both at home and abroad. It is our prayer that in both large and small ways, we can be used by our Master and Lord Jesus Christ to transform our homes, schools, communities, and ultimately, our world. Our goal, as Saint Ignatius said in the Spiritual Exercises, is to "see Him more clearly, love Him more dearly, [and] follow Him more nearly."
Join the Revolution!
It’s Christmas in August!!
Please help the PGBC Youth collect items for the Appalachian Christmas Outreach 2019. We need girls & boys items on the list below. We will collect these items through August. Please turn in all donations by August 31 in order to pack the bags. You can drop items off in the Acteens room across from Mary’s office or in the bins located in the vestibule and Family Life Center.
a) Small items of NEW items such as, gloves, socks, underwear, scarves, etc.
b) Small pop-top canned food such as ravioli, tuna, beef stew, vegetables, fruit
c) At least one NEW, age appropriate non-breakable toy (no toy weapons, please!) This can include small cars, balls, dolls, small stuffed animals, yo-yos, jump rope, sidewalk chalk, card games, Legos, etc.
For oldest age group (15-17) substitute an appropriate item instead of a toy, such as, a flashlight, small thermos, light blanket, books, hunting and fishing magazines for the boys - jewelry, books, skin care products, hair accessories, etc.
d) Full Size Hygiene items: toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, washcloth, brush or comb, shampoo, deodorant (please fit these item into a one gallon Ziploc bag so they do not leak out into the rest of the backpack).

APPALACHIAN CHRISTMAS OUTREACH.
Here's a little information about this wonderful ministry:
The Appalachian Coalfields Ministry, sponsored by North Carolina Baptists on Mission, seeks to meet physical and spiritual needs of people living in the Appalachian Area. Working with scores of ministry centers and small churches in five Appalachian states, we help mobilize volunteers and resources to meet needs. One of the greatest ministry needs in this area occurs around Christmastime. NCBM is calling on churches statewide to respond to this need through Appalachian Christmas Outreach 2019. Our goal is to collect 16,000 backpacks of items to be distributed to Appalachian children in areas of need in December 2019.
