Rad Starts Sept 22


Our first series – RAD is all about loving others. We’ll be looking at many of Jesus’ radical examples of love, and how He set the bar for us to love others like He does.

Be prepared for some 90’s throwback trivia, music, memorabilia, and more! (I know none of our students were alive for the 90’s – ouch!, but we’re going to be taking them back and showing them “this is how we do it!” Did anyone just sing Montell Jordan when they read that?!)

We will meet each Wednesday night from 6:15 – 7:30 in the Attic.

Parents – There’s something for the whole family at MidWeek! There’s always a delicious dinner and Bible Study for all ages! Feel free to reach out to Beth to find out how to get the whole family involved.

Deep Dive for Students

Now, for something that is COMPLETELY BRAND NEW for Fall 2021 – DEEP DIVE.
This past year, as a youth group, we were working on reading through the New Testament. Students read 5 chapters a week, and then we’d get together to discuss them. We took a break from it over the summer, and then we had some students ask if we could bring it back. We thought: “Students that want to read their Bibles and then talk about it?!? That’s a no brainer!” So, we’re bringing back a similar style Bible Study on Sundays from 9:00 – 9:30 a.m. in the room right next door to the Attic. We’ll be diving deep into Scripture, for more in depth conversation and explanation.
This is an ADDITIONAL Bible Study that we’re offering. Anyone and everyone is welcome to be part of Deep Dive, but our main Bible Study time will be at 9:30. There is no pressure to participate in Deep Dive, but we will always encourage students to take part.
Also, we bought a Keurig for this special Bible Study for those that may need a little caffeine jolt to get through the earlier time. 😉
FOR SUNDAY SEPT 19 – Students will need to read:
John 1 – 3

Student Bible Study – Sundays

Every Sunday Morning @ 9:30
While we recognize that Sunday School isn’t new (we’ve never stopped!), we are launching a brand new approach to Sunday School this fall.
First of all, did you know that Sunday School and Wednesday nights are intentionally different? They are two totally different experiences!
In Sunday School, our goal is to help students understand the Bible. It’s one of THE MOST important parts of discipleship! On Sundays, we read the Bible, we look at context (who’s saying it, to whom are they talking to, and WHY), we discover how it applies to us, and we get a big picture of who Jesus is from God’s Word. This is a HUGE part of a students spiritual development.
Our approach to how we do this is new this year. We’ve tried out SIX different curriculum’s this past summer, trying different teaching approaches, listening to student feedback, and we’ve come up with a different way of doing Sunday School.
Students will gather in the Attic at 9:30 a.m. for breakfast, hang out time and games. (More information on breakfast below.) This 9:30 start time is so that everyone in the family can find a Bible Study to be part of at the 9:30 hour.
Our lesson will kick off at 9:45 when one of our faithful leaders will teach a short lesson, and then we will go straight into small group questions and discussion led by another youth leader. We want to encourage students to talk more. It’s important that students ask questions, and talk things out. It’s how they learn to own their faith! We have really enjoyed the great discussions we’ve had this past summer.
Sunday School will end around 10:30, and then all students will be encouraged to attend worship at 11:00 with their families. (Worship – another MAJOR part of a students spiritual development.)
Our kick off series will be called “The Church” which covers doctrinal truth concerning the church. It specifically deals with the disciple-making mission of the church, the leadership of the church, and the two ordinances of baptism and communion. Join us for part one this Sunday at 9:30!
Parents – I would love to help you find a small group on Sunday mornings if you don’t have one. Please reach out if you’re interested in being involved in a small group Bible Study at the same time as your students.

Students I AM Series

Our Summer Bible Study Series: I AM
This summer we’re studying the I AM statements. Every time Jesus starts a sentence with the two words, “I am,” you know that he’s about to say something incredibly important about himself. For five weeks, we’re going to focus on the titles that Jesus calls himself throughout the Gospels.
We’re excited to see how each student’s ideas about Jesus are transformed by studying these statements! Each Bible Study during the summer will follow with a fun summer event. As always, students are encouraged to bring friends!
