FAMILY PLUS High School - August 31

Hi HS Parents!

This past Wednesday night was our "Give It Away" night. No - this is not a big game-show-themed evening where we give away prizes. Rather, it's a night where we ask your students to bring their friends, hear a clearly communicated gospel message, and have an opportunity to respond. This week we were able to join with the Middle School Ministry in the District. I spoke to the group about varying belief systems and cultural issues, but communicated it in the context of "Why I Am A Christian TODAY." The points were:

I am a Christian today because:

1 - I can't believe what I believe without NOT believing something else. John 14:1-6

2 - A moral law requires a moral law Giver. John 14:23-24

3 - TODAY is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:1-2

This coming Sunday we will start a new series in our Sunday Bible Teaching Groups called: Destinations. The main question we'll answer this Sunday is, "Why should I be concerned with eternity?" To get at this we will discuss, among other questions:

1 - Why do you think humans yearn for immortality?

2 - Is there something else that's more important to you right now than your salvation?

3 - If it is urgent to prepare for eternity now, how do we begin?

I hope you'll join me in praying for our students as we unpack God's Truth in this four week series. It should well position us for the fourth Wednesday night in September when we'll have our next "Give It Away" night and call students to respond to the Holy Spirit's calling in their lives.

Please let me know what I can pray about for you or your family.
