Last Wednesday we had our first First Wednesday, as I’m calling it. This is when we take a break from the more serious study and small groups and have fun. We’ll do this on the first Wednesday of each month. Zac and his team led worship and did a great job. David Parker and I had a lip-sync contest that he clearly won and then we did the improv game, Clue. We spent the remainder of the evening just hanging out. I think everyone enjoyed themselves.
This coming Wednesday we’ll be starting the Rejoicing in God’s Good Design curriculum. You can find the parents handout on the curriculum here. More details on the first lesson can be found below. Have a great week and I hope to see you Wednesday!
Rejoicing in God’s Good Design – Lesson 1 preview
The first lesson starts with this basic main idea: To understand anything correctly, we must first come to terms with the Creator. The teaching goals this Wednesday will be to help the students understand that knowing God is necessary to understanding oneself and to bring the students to terms with the Creator through Jesus Christ.
The verses we’ll be looking at will be: Genesis 1:1; Proverbs 2:6-10, 3:5-6; Ecclesiastes 12:1; Romans 1:18-25, 11:36; Colossians 2:3.
Parents, expect to get a summary here and a take home article each week for you to go over with your student.
Remember to let me know if you can attend the new dates for DNow (March 28-30). Also, if you would like to newly register go here and download the new registration form. Deadline is March 19 for getting me the form and payment. The not so cool thing is that the new date might not work for some of you that already registered.
If you registered for the previous date I need to know whether the new dates work or not for you. Please RSVP ‘yes’ or ‘no’ via The City or email me. If the date won’t work we’ll issue a refund. But I’m not going to assume you can go or not, so let me know!
Joni & Friends summer trip
Are you interested in going on this trip? Let me know so I can get you all the latest information. The deadline for registering is March 28 (new date). More on the trip here.
Male leadership prayer answered!
I’m also excited to report that we’ve got two Davids helping us out now! David Parker and David Pinkham will be leading small groups along with myself on Wednesday nights. That is great news! Instead of one large ‘small group’ we’ll have three groups of guys.
