GRACE STUDENTS || This Week’s Theme: John 1 – Follow Me
JOHN 1: FOLLOW ME
Over the coming weeks, we will be reading and teaching through the book of John. We want to explore the life and work of Jesus Christ! This week we will take a look at how he called some of his disciples. How did he interact with them? What was he calling them to? What does it really mean to “Follow Christ?” CLICK HERE to read John 1.
This Week’s Encouraging Message
APP: THE CHOSEN
Because our series will be about the life of Christ, we strongly recommend that you take some time and watch The Chosen. It is a wonderful representation of the early days of Christ’s ministry and will be a great encouragement to you! You can watch directly from the app or project it to your television screen through your streaming device.
WORKSHOP: The Trinity
SAT | 5/9 | 2P
Our virtual retreat was such a success that we decided to continue some of the special components into the future! We will be hosting workshops every couple weeks on various topics with special speakers. Our first workshop will be with high school director Christen Nutter on the sometimes confusing topic of The Trinity!
We are adopting the FIRN organization as a youth ministry! It’s up to YOU to help us re-stock their empty food collection! This organization has relationships with hundreds of immigrants and refugees—WHICH MEANS this is an incredible opportunity for you to extend the love of God to people you’ve never met and have a lasting impact. Click the link below to see a complete list of items needed.
Donations can be dropped off at Grace in the RED bin marked “FIRN Donations” on Tuesdays and Fridays between 9AM-1PM.
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.
We will continue to gather every Wednesday at 3pm! We look forward to seeing every student there! This link will be available every Wednesday at 3–and the password is “grace” for the time being! (Subject to change)
NOTE: We have moved to RingCentral for our meeting hosting because Grace has an encrypted subscription! #safety
It may involve a quick download, but the user interface is identical to Zoom, so students won’t be able to tell a difference. It’s just much safer!
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!
- SEW A MASK. Learning to sew is a great pastime that will benefit you for years to come! What better time to learn than right now? Consider donating extra masks! [LINK]
- MAKE YOUR TOP 10 MOVIE LIST. Ever draw a blank when people ask you what your favorite movie is? Blank no longer! Now is the perfect time to make your all-time top 10 favorites list! [LINK]
- DRESS UP YOUR PET AS A SUPERHERO. Can you think of anything better to do? Honestly. The world needs superhero pets now more than ever. (PLEASE TAKE PICS) [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.
