By Candace Carter
LANDIS — The 12th annual CHAOS Youth Theater, “Reflection,” will take place on Saturday, March 10 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Landis. Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. on Saturday and the pre-show will begin at 6:45 p.m. An Encore performance of “Reflection” will be held on Sunday, March 11 at 4 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church.
When you spend a few minutes looking at your reflection in the mirror, what do you see? Who do you see? Maybe you’re like me and you see the imperfections, or some physical attribute that you wish you could change. The truth is, most people really don’t like looking in the mirror because it reveals our true image.
Have you ever thought about how God sees us? When God looks at us, He sees Jesus. He views us as His new creation — his beautiful children remade in His image. When we look at ourselves we see weakness, but God sees potential. When we look into the mirror we see what we are, but God sees what we can be. We see our past, but God sees the future. When God looks at a person he looks upon their heart — not the outward appearance. It seems as though our world has that a little backwards. Although looking in the mirror is often hard, remember to look upon yourself as a unique individual created by God.
Join CHAOS in a night of creative worship and arts as students share their personal stories of faith and self reflection. Students will perform a series of original skits. Let us remind you how God is able to use our poor choices, unfair circumstances and broken emotions for His honor and glory. Jesus Christ takes the broken pieces and create a masterpiece. We should strive to be a reflection of what we would like to see in others. If you want love, give love; if you want respect, give respect. Be a reflection of Christ.
The 2018 CHAOS Youth Theater will display many forms of Christian arts including God Rods, backlights, drama, acting, singing, dancing, monologues and more. Finding creative ways to intersect my faith with the things I love and enjoy has played a strong role in my youth ministry. I encourage kids to serve God in all that they do.
We have a limited number of tickets left for the both shows. Make your reservations by emailing to reserveCHAOS@gmail.com. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Tickets include popcorn and drink. Tickets are reserved in advance and paid for at the door. Trinity Lutheran Church is located at 108 West Rice St. This is a wonderful event for church youth groups and anyone who would like to join us.
The South Rowan Lutheran Youth is a joint youth ministry of Ebenezer Lutheran Church, St. Enoch Lutheran Church, Mt. Moriah Evangelical Lutheran Church and Trinity Lutheran Church in the South Rowan area. Middle and high school youth from all four churches participate and they go by the name CHAOS Youth, which stands for Christians Hyped about Our Savior. Candice Carter has served as the full time youth director for the group since 2004.
