Erin Moon, Servant of Christ

As Paul writes to Timothy, he urges him 

 "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity,"       1 Timothy 4:12

 Without the help of the teenagers of The Avenue Church, our ministry to the east side so far would have been impossible.  God has sent several teenagers to lead, guide, and love the other kids.  At our annual back-to-school Walmart outing, Erin Moon helped two girls choose comfortable shoes and the outfit of their choice. Erin made the transition from summer to school more positive by shining her light in the direction of these little girls.  While the monetary sponsorship from older members is appreciated and necessary, the gift of time given by teenagers like Erin has blessed these children tremendously.  It is clear that age should never limit the usefulness of a servant of Christ.
