The Story (1/3)
The JH are continuing their series of going through the Bible. They are picking up at Jesus' last hours and death on the cross. They will be studying the story and then discuss questions like:

– What do you think Jesus' act of feet washing communicated to his disciples?

– Why do you think Jesus had to die?

– What implications does Jesus' death on the cross have for your life?


S. H.  
Unholy Scriptures (1/3)
This week we are starting our journey to give us confidence the Bible is reliable. We are going to start off talking about how the Bible we have today is an accurate representation of what the original authors wrote. This is so important because many teens think the Bible is like the telephone game and as the Bible was transmitted throughout the centuries it has been corrupted overtime. But this is the farthest thing from the truth.

Bottom Line: In the Old Testament, the Lord continually commands His people to stop, remember and celebrate. You should also celebrate the steps you take in your relationship with God and celebrate the steps others take as well. 

Sunday Morning – T. J. Davidson
Spiritual Gifts – 2/3
We are continuing to talk about Spiritual Gifts. 

Next Steps
During the next week as you have time to talk with your teenager, consider asking the following questions:
– You talked a lot about spiritual gifts and God wanting all Christ-followers to use their gifts. How have you seen people around you use their spiritual gifts? (Share your thoughts here too.)

– Ok, so, if you’re a believer, you have spiritual gifts. What are some things that you think God has gifted you with? (You have a powerful opportunity to point out your teenager’s strengths and gifts that he or she may not be able to see.)

GETTING TEENS IN THE WORD – At the beginning of this year I really want to focus on getting teens to spend a little time every day in God’s word. If they do that I know it can help transform their life!! I started a series this past Wednesday about Resolutions ande are encouraging teens to form healthy spiritual habits. There are 2 ways we are promoting this and we hope that you help us and encourage your teen to participate! 

We are doing this by trying to reach teens where they are. 1) I have bought a book called “One Minute Bible for Starters.” The book is broken up into 90 days. Each day has a short Bible reading and devotional. Each reading is short so it is manageable and if teens can do it for 3 months, then they have started an amazing habit! 2) I have also started putting passages of Scripture with very short devotional thoughts on Instagram. I post these several times a week when teens are getting ready for school. The youth instagram name is “cabotcocyg”. Encourage your teens to participate in one or both of these great opportunities!

Upcoming Events
1/13-15 – TLC Branson – Back on Monday – 1:00pm
1/19-20 – Men’s Retreat
2/4 – Super Bowl Party – 5:00pm
2/11 – Teen Devotional – 6-8pm – need host
2/23-25 – CHRISTeens – DUE: 1/7
3/30 – Spring Sing – $ DUE 2/7

Wednesday Night – T. J. Davidson
Forward Motion 1/3
Session 1: To The Moon (Jan. 3)
So many times we look at our lives with great expectations, thinking we should be leaps from where we are. We expect perfection. We expect to arrive at some level. The reality is that following Christ isn’t about leaping to instant perfection. We’re walking with Him daily—a walk that involves steps, not leaps. Following Jesus Christ is about the small steps we make every day, steps of obedience, steps in relationship with Him. Sometimes those steps are small, sometimes they are big—but they are all still steps, moving us forward.

Sunday Morning  
Spiritual Gifts 1/3
This week we began our series on Spiritual Gifts. This week’s lesson was entitled “The Gift Giver,” and it focused on helping students understand that God’s plan to serve and grow His church is for the Holy Spirit to work in and through individual believers, and to begin to consider their attitudes toward the gifts they’ve been given.

Next Steps…
During the next week as you have time to talk with your teenager, consider asking the following questions:

– You talked a lot about spiritual gifts and God wanting all Christ-followers to use their gifts. How have you seen people around you use their spiritual gifts? (Share your thoughts here too.)

 

– Ok, so, if you’re a believer, you have spiritual gifts. What are some things that you think God has gifted you with? (You have a powerful opportunity to point out your teenager’s strengths and gifts that he or she may not be able to see.)
