Scarred- Week 2

29 Oct

Teaching Series: Scarred Week 2

Sermon Title: Risking to Deal with Lifes Hurts

Sermon in a Sentence: Healing requires and element of risk. Risking letting someone in to your hurt.

Bible Verses Used: John 16:33, Luke 19:1-10

Scale of Difficulty: 7 out of 10 Talking about the real pain that students are going through is never an easy thing. Tonight was definitely easier than last week. Tonight we focused on how to deal with our scars.

Attendance: 39

Service Length: 90min

Understandable Message: We spent much of our time talking about the story of Jesus and Zacchaeus, and the rick he took coming down from the tree to let Jesus into his life. That element of risk to let Jesus deal with his hurt, and start him on the path to healing. Zacchaeus made amends to those he had wronged by paying them back 4 times what he had taken.

Many of us are like Zacchaeus, up in our tree, where its “safe”, not wanting to risk letting anyone into our hurt. For many of the students writing their scars down on the card last week may have been the first time they have spoken about their pain. We need to let go and let God. We also need to find a safe person to talk to about our hurt.

Grade: B

Volunteer/Student Involvement: Jeremy,and Daniel on the board, Roni at check in and helped with games. Laurie and Haley ran the snack shack!

Element of Fun/Positive Environment: The first 15-20 min was hang out time. Students played games (spoons, cards, Xbox) connected, and enjoyed snacks. Great success! Played a power point game that was not such a great success.

Music Playlist: Music played on the iPod during the hang out time, no band tonight 😦

Favorite Moment: Got to speak to a couple of students about some pretty big scars in their lives. One of them wants to tell her story!
