St. Paul CME presents Youth Explosion

THE St. Paul CME Church presented their Annual Youth Explosion 2018, Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 2:30 PM EST. They used a theme: “A Generation Being Born Again”.

This Youth Day message was well accepted and brought a beautiful spirit. This spirit was brought and by the attendants in the celebration, the way in which the intense pressure was erased. The program was designed to over come cultural assumptions that hindered the Gospel in early Gentiles of Simeon.

The Youth Explosion in the sanctuary of St. Paul CME was really saying to all cultural improvement has always been needed in the Gospel in order to be born again in all expressions: as far as improvement of mind, manners of developing special care for each other as the Gentiles multicolor, skills, arts, singing, speaking for the work of civilization in work of jobs especially school- languages needed in education. In this program, there was no hesitant share of the Gospel. God, did not give grace to one nation nor one age.

God extends His grace to all nations and all ages- Luke 2:25. This program presented the fact of Luke 2:25. Simeon took Jesus in his arms and praised God. There was no differences at the presentation of Simeon in the multicolored God’s Love. Call to Worship: Master Jaren Ross of St. Stephens CME Church, Valley, AL. The Devotional Exercises was conducted by St. Paul Youth Praise Team. Then the Processional of the Youth Choir marched to the choir stand.

The choir sang three beautiful songs and prayed. Scripture was read followed by Offering and Offertory Prayer. The next part of the explosion was the enjoyment of St.  Mark Praise Dancers. Then responses from the Worship Leader. They performed very well.

At this segment in the program a beautiful recording artist, Katy Rain, was introduced by the Worship Leader. Katy Rain sang two selections of outstanding music. She was enjoyable. She also ended with a prayer for all. A solo performed by Taylor Jackson was in preparation of the Sermon.

Guest Speaker- 12-year-old Rev. Jaylin Alexander, Pastor Johnny Nelms said Rev. Alexander was a football player, 7th grader, from Friendship Missionary Baptist Church. Rev. Alexander opened with the strength of an adult preacher. He said I have been born again because the angels in heaven changed my name.

As Rev. Alexander continued he told the listening congregation how he knew he had been born again. He said the Lord was with him and has been with him all the time. Then, Rev. Alexander told the story of the Three Hebrew Boys, in the time of Daniel.

He said the Lord will bring us out of anything because He is able. Let us all praise God diligently at all times. Then, he encouraged all to make good choices or wise choices. He took time and encouraged all young people to please make good choices.

Let your decisions be wise because you need to know how to bring your self out what you get into before too late. Oh, what an excellent address and message. Great continue Rev. Alexander!! The Explosion was great!!

St. Paul expressed love and gratitude to all who joined them. After the program, Pastor Johnnie Nelms and Mrs. Vanessa Nelms had remarks and Mrs. Nelms gave awards to some participants. Refreshments was served. Thanks to St. Paul for the needed program. Enjoyed seeing friends of years ago.
