The YPD'ers of Wayman AME Church meet monthly to study the AME Church and the WMS-YPD Constitution. The youth of Wayman are very active in our community. Some of their special projects are Thanksgiving dinners for the homeless; Christmas caroling at nursing homes and volunteering. All youth and young adults aged 2 through 26 may become members of the YPD.
Future Fire, was derived from a session with the youth of Wayman AME Church, Rev. Tracey Gibson and Brother Tyson Williams. After listening to the youth’s vision for a 4th Sunday experience Future Fire was launched.
Some of the words that led to the naming of future fire were: innovative, technology, something new, an experience, fresh, connections and empowerment.
The Color Red biblically represents the Blood of Christ, warfare, consuming fire. Fire burns off the old for new growth. Fire as a spiritual symbol means renewal, empowerment and transformational. The fire of the Holy Spirit burns off that which is not of Christ.
Future Fire is a transformational geared toward the youth.
