What Are We Supposed To Do With Ourselves Now?

Now that Comedy Night is done, what are we supposed to do with ourselves? We’ve been so intensely practicing that we forgot about… gaming! Oh yeah. Mafia. That’s what we can do. Thanks, Alexa. And for the lesson time, we finished up the 3 M’s and 3 A’s for men […]

What’s your plan so far?

 

What did you do last Sunday that was different from the Sunday before? I was looking for a little more visible change, but you might not realize what ZEAL looks like!

 

During the…

  • Preaching – maintain eye contact. Look excited. Look up! Listen. Say “Amen!” Get right up close to the preaching. Read the text ahead of time. DON’T TALK with your friends. Don’t distract guy/girl friends by sitting too close or “accidently” touching. Keep a pure and concentrated mind always.
  • Singing – sing! Concentrate on the words. Let the words finally mean something to you; don’t just sing them. Open your mouths! Don’t “drift off” and look at the light bulbs again… they’re not THAT interesting! Oh yeah and… SING LOUDLY!
  • Fellowship time – greet people. Shake everyone’s hand. Search for guests in the main service (there are always new teens in the back.) Talk to people. Encourage people. Invite them to activities. Discourage bad speech or bad attitudes. Talk to people that you don’t know.

 

Like I’ve said before, you can say all you want that you’re “on fire” and things are different, but it’s all a lie until it’s seen. All we have to go on is what you do, not what you say.

 

Last Sunday’s service was awesome! I loved being called your youth pastor, and we got a lot of really exciting comments from people who are seeing God work in your lives. I’m not saying at ALL that you are all liars and there was no change last Sunday! I’m just going to always be the voice that pushes you to always “step it up.”

 

With all God’s done for you, you’ll never make it up, but you can try! Do right. Love God. Love others.

MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY

If you can read his writing, Pastor has a stack of hand-written sermon outlines that he needs typed. Please let me know if you can do some or all of those for him.

 

MIXED ENSEMBLE & YA CHOIR – Sunday, Aug. 14

These will begin again after the evening service.  This would be a great time to join, if you haven’t already done that.  It would be wonderful to see more teens involved in the music ministry!

 

BEACH BASH – Friday, August 19

We will leave the church for Oceanside at 4:00 pm and return to the church by 10:00 pm.  The cost is $3 per person.  We will have hot dogs, shshscchchshhmores (is that how you spell it?), beach games, a short challenge, and LOTS of fun!  Sign up soon if you plan to go.

 

MEMORIZE AND GIVE – always.

See the booklets on the table if you’re wondering what we’re talking about.
