COR Congregations are committed to supporting youth and young adults with their life challenges.
COR congregations provide a physically and emotionally safe environment for people to deal with life’s stresses and their deepest questions. We also acknowledge that meeting people’s material needs is a highly spiritual act.
So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.
~ 1 Thessalonians 5:11 NLT
“Many have fainted and become discouraged in the great struggle of life, whom one word of kindly cheer and courage would have strengthened to overcome. Never, never become heartless, cold, unsympathetic, and censorious. Never lose an opportunity to say a word to encourage and inspire hope. We cannot tell how far-reaching may be our tender words of kindness, our Christlike efforts to lighten some burden."
~ Counsels for the Church, p. 255.
"The more adult leaders who are investing in a teens’s life, the more likely that teen is to stay in church. The more adults who are involved in a teen’s life, the lower the dropout rate."
~ Thom S. Rainer and Sam S. Rainer III in Essential Church: Reclaiming a Generation of Dropouts, p. 124.
