There is a Way Home

Our guest preacher today was Seth Horrell, with a message called, “There is a Way Home” from Isaiah 40:1-11.

Key Summary:

  1. The way home leads through the wilderness, but don’t let that be a wasteland. Use this time to make preparations and connect with God and others.
  2. The way will be filled with obstacles, but work with God to demolish anything that is in your way.
  3. Remember that deliverance is God’s work, not ours. Don’t attempt to come to God on our own terms, but on HIS terms.
  4. We are called to get to higher ground, be salt and light, witness, and herald his message.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Student Update Nov 11

Thanksgiving Baskets: Each year, our church collects food t-basketto give out to families in need at Thanksgiving. This year, we’re supporting 20 families. We need some help sorting and packaging all the donations so we can hand them out!

I need 2 more students to help me fill Thanksgiving Baskets at the church on Thursday, November 17th @ 5:30 p.m. If you are available to help, there is a sign up sheet in the youth room!

Sunday School Swap Day: Sunday, November 13th
This Sunday, November 13th, our students will have the opportunity to sit in on adult Sunday School classes. The adult classes have signed up and are excited and expecting our students! Students will be split up into adult classes with 3 or 4 students per class. (No student will be alone!) There will be a time for students and adults to get to know each other a little bit. The adults will do their normal lesson and students can participate if they choose.

The main goal of the day is for our students and adults to get to know WHO each other are, so that they know more people in our church family. This leads to a more positive church experience for our students…which makes them more likely to stay plugged into a faith community.

We have done this the past two years and it’s been a great success!

Please encourage your student to attend and PLEASE have them to church by 9:40 this Sunday! This will help us get them to a Sunday School class on time. We don’t want to be a disruption to the class.
