Tonight, as we settle back into Wednesday night Youth, we will recap lesson 3 of Gripped, that many teens missed on Sunday (Fear that labels are who we are), and move onto the final episode of Gripped, where we look at how PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT FEAR. Major texts tonight will be 1 John 4:11-18.
Fear is a big issue for teens. We have already tackled the fear of rejection and failure, and what God's Word has to say about that. Take the opportunity this week to ask the teens what they have been taking away from our discussion, and what God's Word has to say about how we can handle our fears.
If you want to check out the past 2 videos that we've watched to spark discussion, check them out here: FEAR OF REJECTION: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22ANrNBjClA

We have talked in Youth about being Set Apart, or Holy.
Then we talked about setting apart time for Christ each day/week.
This week we challenge the teens as to whether or not they have taken time to see when they set apart time for Christ this week?
This week's study: We focus on how to REMAIN in CHRIST!
READ John 15:1-11
How can we connect with Christ?
How can we stay connected?
What things pull us from Him?
How can we keep them from pulling us away from Him?
Tonight through a special surprise activity, the teens will be challenged to step up and commit to who they want to serve with their lives, and will be challenged to look at the fact that their decisions can have great impact on the lives of others. They will be challenged with a follow-up study of Philippians 1:19-30, and what it means to live a life worthy of the Gospel.
A final challenge to the teens to leave the POSER in the PAST. Teens will be challenged to look to who they will be in the future, and what they need to do to get there.
Change of location for YOUTH this week - We will be at the church with special guest speaker SAM MORGAN!! See you tomorrow night at 6:15. We will continue the POSER series, and Sam will focus on the issue of living for Christ in the age of Social Media!
After an EPIC week of District Camp (and then a few days of
vacation for my family), it is good to be back with the teens!!! Hope
to see your student tomorrow night at East from West Coffee
House at 19 National Rd, Englewood, OH 45322. Bring money for
coffee, smoothies, muffins. Pop will be on the house. We will
continue our POSER series with a discussion about why we deny
who we are in Christ. See you there from 6:30 - 8:15!!
Come for the Slip-n-Slide....stay for a lesson on how to stay true to who we are in Christ. Major text will be Matthew 26. Bring a snack and/or drink to share.
6:30 - 8pm
Hello parents! We are starting a new series with the teens, and thought a great way to kick it off would be with fellowship together over some dinner. We will provide the food and dessert this Wednesday night....you just need to provide the teen(s). Hope to see them out for the new series that will challenge the teens to "Get Past the Pose." Key verses from Matthew 7:1-5.
Following Jesus has a cost? This week we will look at Luke 9:57-62 & Revelation 3:15-17, and a few other passages to see if this is the case. Also, teens should come ready for a sweet treat! We will share a dinner together next week at Youth while we learn. Teens can come at 5pm to help prepare the meal if they are interested.
