GRACE STUDENTS || This Week’s Theme: John 3 – Born Again
JOHN 3: Born Again
Join us this week in John 3 as we explore a special narrative in which Jesus discusses with Nicodemus how to be saved! We will unpack more specifically what it means to be “born again.” We hear that expression a lot, but what does it really mean? Grab your Bible and join Christen as we sit at the feet of Jesus together! CLICK HERE to read John 3.

NEED COMMUNITY? JOIN A D-TEAM!
What’s a D-Team? A D-Team is a small group of students in your area. D-Teams meet via Zoom or a similar service on different days of the week. If you are NOT part of a D-Team and would really like to connect with other Christians your age, please know that we would LOVE to connect you! For those who were on the Virtual Spring Retreat, these are a lot like Cabin Time.
Here are three fun activities to keep things interesting! They’re not meant to be overly-spiritual, just fun ideas we came up with to focus some of that energy around the house!
- PLANT A GARDEN. This is both fun and practical! You’ll have a great time doing it and can eat from it too! [LINK]
- DO THE SALTINE CRACKER CHALLENGE. Grab an adult for supervision and try to eat SIX saltine crackers in 60 seconds without the help of water or any other liquid! Link: [LINK]
- LEARN TO MAKE AN ORIGAMI DINOSAUR. Imagine how impressive you’ll be one day back at school when you can turn your homework into a dinosaur. [LINK]
STUDY: FAMILY BIBLE STUDY
On a weekly basis, we provide a family Bible study for you to use in your home! We create these to coordinate with the Sunday message and passage! We hope this resource is a useful tool for you as you come together as a family of faith in your homes! For some real fun, go virtual and team up with another family.
