FAMILY PLUS High School - October 9

Hello HS Parents!

I hope you've enjoyed the hiatus that fall break offers us! This was actually my first break with my own child "in the system." We did okay, but I must confess - getting his schedule back on track was a little challenging. I think this is mainly because we had to start getting him ready for school by 6:45 AM again and this messed with mine and Kelley's sleep patterns! :)

This past Wednesday night your student participated in our second "SERVE" night. We had our students help deliver some furniture we donated to another church, stuff bulletins for tomorrow morning, staple bags for our Christmas food drive initiative, count and band cards for the "As You Go…As they Come" event, sort and hang clothes for His closet, and move some trash items from our youth building to the construction dumpster. I LOVE the fact that each week our students are experiencing a purpose of our church: Come/Worship, Connect/Grow, and Serve/Go!

This coming Sunday we will continue our study on "Follow The Leader." We have been looking at why Jesus wants us to become a devoted disciple of and for Him. We have taken a close look at what the Scriptures say regarding the characteristics of a follower of Christ, and will spend time tomorrow talking about the importance of finding a good spiritual coach. We will be looking specifically at Paul's mentoring relationship to Timothy and focusing on the 1st chapter of his second letter to Timothy.
