Welcome Speech For Church Youth Program

I believe this day will go well, as we anticipate seeing the hand of God at work. As it is Thanksgiving, we are thankful for everything, and we would want to extend our gratitude to each and every one of you who prayed for the event that is taking place today.

Colossians 2:7 say “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.”

Colossians 3:15-16 says “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 continues by stating “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

As we gathered here today, we have a great opportunity to explore these verses in the scripture and do what they conduct.

To begin, I want to express my gratitude to our omnipotent God for providing us with the amazing chance to show each other love while commemorating the virtuous acts of our Lord.

In the same manner that we read about how the Lord guided the Israelites through the desert and safeguarded them from their foes, we have also noticed the same thing in our own lives. Since it first opened its doors, the church has seen tremendous expansion, and now marks the occasion of its fortieth year of service.

Your attendance at this celebration is very appreciated, and we would like to thank each and every one of you for making the effort to come and share in the festivities with us.

We would also want to thank everyone who helped in any way to make this day a success, and we hope that our heavenly Father will continue to shower his abundant blessings on you in all that you do.

As we begin, may the Lord bless you and keep you safe throughout the whole ceremony.

All of you, thank you.

I feel blessed, seeing all your faces this morning. To see Christ alive is this community fills me with a joy that I can’t express right now [pause] because it would take up most of this Sunday. But I know how fortunate I am to have you here. I know how hard it is to be Christian today. We struggle with so many challenges in a world that wants us to believe our path makes no sense. But I’m telling you, They. Are. Wrong!

Peace to you from our Lord Jesus Christ. We are here today at [CHURCH] to acknowledge — to embrace and celebrate — His rising. A resurrection that reminds us that every day is a miracle because we’re here and we’re smiling and we’re crying because of Him. His sacrifice!

Brethren in Christ, I wish you all a Happy Easter. It brings my heart great joy to stand here and welcome you in sharing this great day. I don’t know about you, but it’s a wonderful moment for a sinner like me to stand before you accepted by His blood before the Lord Almighty.

Before we begin, let me say how honored I am to stand before you and our Lord Jesus Christ this morning. Once again, it’s time to learn from Him who died for our sins and keeps teaching us every day that through his abundance the lives we live shall not be ours but belonging to the Christ who lives through us.

Brothers and sisters, I accept this moment in the name of the Lord with great humility. I am blessed — we all are! — to see this day, to commemorate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus who grants us His ministry from the heavenly courts.

For Youth Easter speech: I’m humbled, standing before all these young faces, eager to thank the Lord as we celebrate this glorious day. The Holy Spirit spoke to me. He reminded how important it is to remind you that the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior is important to all of you.

Thank Jesus for this day. Thank Jesus because it’s for Him that we have everything. We get to gather here as a congregation and smile in great spirits, to turn and look at family and friends and neighbors … and celebrate.

Our dear Heavenly Father:

We want to come to you today to thank you for this lovely opportunity to gather to enjoy some tasty food, fellowship and fun. We are so grateful for this event that is about to take place as it will be a source of wholesome socialization. Our dear Father in Heaven, we pray that this food here will provide us with great nourishment, and we pray that this event will be a source of encouragement to everyone here today.

In Jesus name I humbly pray, Amen.

Easter Sunday Welcome Addresses
Whenever your congregation gathers on Easter Sunday, it’s important to quickly get them focused on the reason why. We refer to this address as a “welcome speech,” and it is the foundation for setting the stage. The welcome speech establishes the tone, catching and keeping the attention of your audience.

Often, speakers try to start their sermon with an off-the-cuff improvisation. This can be a mistake. Here are several examples of welcome messages that you’re welcome to present on Easter Sunday.
