Wednesday Night Youth Worship  

Wednesday Night Worship 
All students in 7th grade - High School are invited to join our Youth Ministry for Wednesday night worship. We meet in the youth room on Wednesday nights from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. 

Join us for dinner, some amazing worship, a short and intentional message, small group breakouts, and entertaining games! Learn what it means to love and follow Jesus by studying Scripture, and talking to your friends and leaders throughout the school year about faith-based topics.




Wednesday Night Dinner Volunteers
As we are preparing the Wednesday night worship schedule for the fall semester, we are looking for parents to support our Wednesday ministry by volunteering to provide dinner.  We are so appreciative of those who volunteer to provide dinner for Wednesday Night Worship.  Many of our students come directly from extracurricular activities. After a busy day of school and activities, the students appreciate the meals that are waiting for them before we kick-off the evening.

It is helpful to drop off food at 5:45 p.m. at the Entrance C (the gym entrance). If you text Tim when you arrive, we send students down to help carry the food upstairs.  Please plan to feed an average of 70 students/leaders. 

We realize that thinking about preparing food for 70 people can seem intimidating and we do encourage parents to work together.  If you are interested in helping prepare a meal and would like to pair up with another parent, but need some help connecting with another parent please let Tim know.  

Below are the dates that we need volunteers to provide dinner.  Please email  Tim if you are interested in volunteering to provide a meal or if you have any questions.

Middle School & High School Sunday Morning Class

For the next 6 weeks, we will be watching, breaking down, and discussing the film, "Run The Race." This  Bible study combines powerful scenes from the film with the timeless message of faith, hope, and love. Through illustrations, Scripture, and discussion, students will be invited to experience the triumph of grace and hope that only comes from trusting the God who "loves us like crazy" and never stops pursuing us.

We will see you all on Sunday mornings @ 9:40am in the Youth Room!

Worship  

GO Series
The Youth leaders will be helping students study and discuss what the Gospel says about the Great Commission and how we, as Christ-followers, should be living our daily lives if we are going to live out the Great Commission.


WEEK 1

Following Jesus
This week, students will understand that the power of the Gospel is available for everyone. The only true prerequisite is to know that we are sinners in need of saving; And to challenge students to take a step further in following the Jesus, no matter where they may be on their personal faith journey with Him.

Next Steps . . . 
As you go through this week with your student(s), look for instances to create some dialogue based on
the theme of this lesson. Consider discussing the following questions or concepts:

ReadMatthew 4:18-22; 9:9-13

Ask When I say "good news," what are some examples that jump to mind?

Ask What do we know Peter, Andrews, James, and John were good at before they started following Jesus around?

AskWhat are some ways today that people might believe that they aren't qualified or good enough to follow Jesus?

Ask: What are the qualifications for following Jesus? What does someone have to bring to the table?
