Student Ministry has hit the ground running. Our leaders and students are energized about this coming year and all the activities involved. We not only have small groups on Sunday’s, Wednesday night worship services, and fun outings, we also have events throughout the year.
One of those events is coming up on October 14-18. Our church will be going to Leslie County, KY for a missions trip. If you would like to attend that mission trip, you can either register online, or fill out an information card in the Backstage student area at the information desk.
This past Sunday, our students began a small group teaching series called, “Savior and King.” The big question for the day was, “why did Jesus come into the world?” On the surface this seems like a pretty straight forward answer. Students and adults alike will say; give life to the world, save the world, do God’s will, and/or provide eternal life. All are great answers and correct, but mean nothing unless allow Jesus to invade our space and change our lives personally. Our prayer will continue to be that Jesus will be more than a name and a historically figure, but someone who is alive and active within our lives.
Starting this Wednesday night our “Discover Your Shape” series begins @ Dock@1810 at The Warehouse. This 6 week series will hopefully lead students on a journey to discover what God has shaped them for and help them realize that they are a masterpiece
created by God. Wednesday nights has shifted to be more of a student lead worship service. We want students to take ownership and lead thei
r peers to have an intimate relationship with God. This is a great environment to invite friends.
“O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know my every thought when far away. You know what I’m going to say even before I say it. I can never escape from your Spirit. I can never get away from your presence. Even in the darkness I can’t hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are both alike to you. You made all the delicate inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex. Your workmanship is marvelous and how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion and I was woven together in the dark of the womb (Psalm 139).”
