Wednesday Wrap-up

23 Jul

Teaching: Remaining Strong

Sermon Title:
Living Out God’s Way

Sermon in a Sentence:
We need to train spiritually as believers

Versus Used:
Mark 14:38-39, Romans 8:15, 1 John 1:7, Matt 7:13-14, Philippians 3:14, Colossians 2:19, Ephesians 6:17, Psalm 100:4, 2 Corinthians 9:12-13

Weekend Scale of Difficulty:
6 out of 10. First time we did not break into small groups, so it was a change for many of the students. We are moving away from the small group time, to make guests and seekers feel more comfortable.

Attendance: 55 students

Service Length: 85 min

Understandable Message: 4 out of 10. Pretty easy, we used videos to show how we can put Jesus in the trunk, while we take the wheel. Sometimes we think we know best, and we can be in control of our lives. When really we should give Jesus the keys and ride shotgun.

Grade: B

Volunteer/Student Involvement: Students- Jeremy ran the sound and video, Andrew on the lights. Adult Leaders- Jayne helped with the power point game.

Element of Fun/Positive Environment: The game ended in an 8 way tie! So we used sleeping bags over the students as a tie breaker. The winning teams sent one representative to the front, they were matched up one on one, and on their knees had to pin the opponent. Winners moved on until the finals. Great time! We also had the use of a fog machine tonight with new laser lights! So cool. BEST OF ALL we had 5 students accept Christ for the first time!

Music Playlist: We Shine, Today is the Day, Dancing Generation

Favorite Moment: Seeing 5 students move from creations of God, to children of God!

Personal: Still struggling with students not paying attention. I know that some of it is just students being students, and some of it is that I am the new guy in town. I am prayerful that as I build relationships with the students, and they see I am doing ministry because I truly care. That they will be more attentive, and more engaging. I feel so blessed that I can do what I love and support my family, thank you Jesus!
