This Week's Promise to Share

“I will praise you, Lord. Although you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you have comforted me. Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.”

Isaiah 12:1-2, NIV

From Fia Taito, Puyallup Church Member

Youth Lead the Puyallup Church Youth Rally!

Rise and Shine for Jesus Youth Rally at the Puyallup SDA Church was all about youth empowerment and an opportunity for them to share their God-given gifts and talents to serve their purpose in life! I've had the privilege to work with the youth and amazing leaders at Puyallup Church to help encourage youth to pursue what God has called them to do!

God surely was in the house during the youth rally and the Holy Spirit was felt from the very start of our evening program. Praise God for a powerful evening of fellowship and an amazing turnout! We are so blessed to have an amazing family of God and we look forward to our next youth rally!
