Family Plus Email-High School
October 26, 2012Hi HS Parents!
This past Wednesday night we looked at the passage in Luke about the Woman at the Well in the 4th chapter of John. We talked about what it must have felt like to be carrying all of that "baggage" and to have the Master speak it right to our faces with loving forgiveness.
I showed them a video about a song written by Matthew West entitled "Forgiveness." It's a beautiful story of how a mother forgave the drunk driver who killed her daughter one night. I think so many times we relate to stories and songs like this as wondering if we could forgive. I suggested to your students that maybe we more closely resemble the person who needs to be forgiven.
This coming Sunday students will begin a new study called "Get A Grip." It will help us take a look at what the Scriptures say about maintaining control under any situation.
As You Go & As They Come
On Wednesday, Oct. 31, people will turn on their porch lights and welcome total strangers to their homes. It's called Halloween (Trick or Treat). We are taking this opportunity to send our church into the community! Join us in accepting this open invitation by inviting the people you encounter that night to “The Great I AM: A Worship Encounter with the God who IS!" (Nov. 17-18, 2012).
You can do this in one of two ways:
- “As You Go” from house to house, leave an invitation, or
- “As They Come” to your house, drop an invitation in their sack along with your treat.
Invitation cards are available at the church office or in the foyer on Sunday morning or Wednesday evening (in front of Thrive Books and Media).
We will have no other church activities on Wednesday night, Oct. 31, 2012.
