This weekend was Big Weekend, during which we attended worship times at First Baptist and had discussion and time to hang out in our host homes. The focus of Big Weekend was “Red Revolution: Seeing the World Through the Lens of Christ”. We will continue leading students down this path of seeing the world with Christ’s eyes by using the same focus for the next 4 weeks.
This week’s lesson emphasized that seeing the world through the lens of Christ will lead one to be an optimist (hopeful) and realist (sorrowful). An essay about the same topic can be found here.
-We have fully begun small groups. 2 female small groups and 2 male small groups have formed. We believe small groups are a great place for students to really plug in, be held accountable, have questions answered, and share life with other Christians. Please contact Ben or Bo if you would like to join a small group.
–Youth group is meeting in the Worship Center from 6:30 to 8:30 PM on Tuesday nights. We play games and just generally enjoy each other’s company. Students are free to drop in at any time throughout the night.
–October 18th: We are going to The Saint Concert Series featuring Christian rappers: Andy Mineo, KB, and Canon. The cost is $18 and we will be leaving the church at 6:30 PM. Either sign up at church or contact Ben or Bo on Facebook, phone, or in person if you are interested in going.
–November 1st: We will be heading to the Collett’s house for Fall Fun Night. We will have a bonfire, games, and possibly a hayride. We will leave the church at 5:30 PM and return at 9:00 PM. Either sign up at church or contact Ben or Bo on Facebook, phone, or in person if you are interested in going.
Everyone have a good week!
