Finding Gods Comfort

At Solace, our mission is to equip students with the knowledge and tools they need to Seek God's Comfort, Surrender their lives to Christ, and Share God's love with others.

Seek

We seek God when we realize that there's nothing else in the world that can comfort us quite like Him. God is waiting with arms wide open - all we need to do is open our eyes, and let Him in.

Surrender

When we find God, the next step is to respond to Him. This requires surrendering our lives - giving up everything we were never meant to be, in order to be everything God created us to be.

Share

After surrendering our lives to God, taking on His love and comfort, we desire to share the love and comfort He brings with everyone around us!
(2 Corinthains 1:3-5)

What the youth have to say...

"I have made a lot of new friends; everyone is open, friendly and made me feel comfortable and welcome since day one. I love all the youth leaders; they are all nice, open, caring towards everyone, easy to talk to and are always willing to listen. It’s easy to see that they love God and sharing his love and the word of God with us. They make it easy to love learning about God"

"Why at the Well is my go-to place. I don't live in the best of conditions, and when I need to get out, I come here. I love all the people here; they have helped me so much through the years. If it wasn't for this place, I wouldn't be where I am today."
