Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

Wednesday Series Changes

March 18th, 2017

A long while back, we worked through a few lessons in the Different By Design (DBD) books on Wednesday nights.

I treat Wednesdays more like teaching times, and Sundays more like preaching times. So, Wednesdays include simpler topics, more application, and less time in one book of the Bible.

ALL our teaching times are biblical (Bible-based), but not all of the teaching times are spent in one text (like Leviticus). Different By Design was a book of practical Bible-based lessons on various topics like masculinity/femininity, relationships, clothes, friendships, manners, hygiene and more.

We took a break from DBD to do BIBS and the last series of lessons that Pastor put together on apologetics. The rest of the apologetics lessons dealt with deeper-level philosophical arguments about truth, morals and absolutes, and it was less practical than what we do on Wednesdays. We covered God, Jesus, and the Bible. Later, we might revisit more applicable topics, but we’re moving BACK to DBD, sort of.

I sense the need to get back to some basics again. I want to cover some of the topics in DBD, but also expand them. We’ll spend a few weeks on the overall topics (bold ones above) by focusing on:

  • Drama
  • Resolving conflict
  • Gender differences
  • How and when to date
  • Dressing modestly
  • Dressing up/Dressing right
  • Respecting your parents
  • Being a hard worker
  • Being a thankful person
  • Giving
  • And more!

That’s quite a list. Some of these topics are borne out of the things that have hurt me as your youth pastor. Some of them are simple reminders. Some are preventative, while others are corrective. I hope they’re all helpful. That’s the point. Love God, love others, and do right!  -Bro. Ryan
