Age is Just a Number

As we finish our programs for the past school year I find myself praising God for all things... especially volunteers. Without volunteers, nothing is possible. On Tuesday nights Lacombe, Ponoka, Sylvan Lake, Rimbey and Maskwacis all run an outreach and discipleship night called Life360. What we’ve been striving to build is teams of multi generational volunteers. Teams with 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 & even 80 year olds. Our communities have a few 50 year olds, a smattering of 60 year olds, and one 87 year old! We are praying for many more volunteers in the later ages. All volunteers are gifted and appreciated, but many in the older category seem to feel they may not fit with the teenagers. We say: you never know until you step in! Our experience has shown that more than likely, the youth will relate to you and treat you like a celebrity! Don't let your age determine if you can help provide youth with hope and wholeness.
