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.

Announcements

-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.

Events

October 18thWe 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!

This Sunday was our first Sunday after the series “Education God’s Way”.  We (Ben and Bo) took the opportunity to share our testimonies.  1) We wanted to do this to further introduce ourselves to the students.  2) We want to encourage students to explore their own testimony.  A bulletin for this week can be found here.  The homework was to use the space in the center of the bulletin for the student to explore his or her own testimony.  Parents, please encourage your students to do this.  Students, really think over and write about what your story and what your Christian walk has been like.

Big Weekend is coming up this weekend! The cost is $50.  Contact Ben or Steven, or fill out the form on the web site to sign up.

Everyone have a good week!

On Sunday morning we finished our series “Education God’s Way”.  This week’s topic concerned a student’s mission field–her school.

A link to the bulletin can be found here.  The lesson traveled through the timeline of the Bible looking at humanity’s mission throughout.  We concluded by discussing how we are now, under the New Covenant, a royal priesthood that is to be God’s light to the world.  Every Christian is a light wherever they go; students are therefore lights in their schools.  An essay written to a general audience about the topic can be found here.

Pulse 9/8/13

Pulse Air

In Pulse Air on Sunday morning we continued the series “Education God’s Way”.  This week we discussed school being student’s current work, and work being important to God.

A link to the bulletin from Sunday morning can be found here.  We went through quite a few passages, starting in Genesis and ending in the New Testament.  God is truly concerned with us working and doing our work well.

Pulse Beat

At Pulse Beat on Sunday night we enjoyed some more whiffle ball and had a great discussion about praying always.  The main text was 1 Thessalonians 3:6-13, but we also discussed 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Romans 12:12, and Philippians 4:6.  The leaders and some students shared personal experiences with praying constantly and the time was encouraging.

Pulse 9/1/13

Pulse Air

In Pulse Air on Sunday morning we continued the series “Education God’s Way”.  This week we discussed the issue of obeying authority.

A link to the bulletin from Sunday morning can be found here.  The main idea of the lesson was that we are always under heavenly and earthly authority.  We must first obey our heavenly authority (God) and God also wants us to obey our earthly authority.  The outline was used to write a blog with more of an adult audience in mind.  The blog can be found here.

Pulse Beat

At Pulse Beat on Sunday night we enjoyed some whiffle ball.  The lesson was over 1 Thessalonians 2:17-3:5.  We discussed how affectionate Paul was for the church at Thessalonica and how we could emulate that affection.

Events

-On Wednesday Sep. 4 we are meeting in room 100 from 6:30-8:00 pm.  We are still unsure of how we are going to implement small groups and are using this time to hear students’ input.

-On Saturday Sep. 7 we are meeting in the Upper Room from 6-8 pm for a Jam Session.

-The sign up lists for Big Weekend, which is Sep. 27-29, are at the connection center.  The cost is $50.

Everyone have a good week!

Pulse 8/25/13

Pulse Air

In Pulse Air on Sunday morning we began the series “Education God’s Way”.  With school just beginning, we believe this is an important topic.  Students, after all, spend a large amount of time at school and need a Biblical view of something that is so central.

A link to the bulletin from Sunday morning can be found here.  The main idea of the lesson was that our two of our primary objectives in school should be to 1) learn truth and 2) prepare to serve the world.  A further explanation of the lesson can be found here.

Pulse Beat

At Pulse Beat on Sunday night we enjoyed some dodgeball.  The lesson was over 1 Thessalonians 2:1-16.  We had discussion concerning what it means to live to please God before man.  We also discussed the importance of encouragement and honesty, which included some personal stories shared and general encouragement during our discussion.

Jam Sessions are going to be moved to the first Saturday of every month from 6-8 PM until announced otherwise.  This means we will not be having the next jam session this Friday (8/30) but Saturday (9/7) instead.

Hope everyone is having a good week!
