Ministry Track Selections

(Students will pick three ministry tracks. These are not 1st, 2nd, 3rd choices, but three options in which they would like to participate.)

Beach Evangelism Ministry This track is designed to show students how to build relationships with people on the beach and will provide students the opportunity to share the love of Christ in a tangible way. Specific ministry may include handing out refreshments, organizing beach activities or simply en- gaging people in meaningful conversation.

Children’s Ministry This ministry track involves working with children in a variety of settings including: Vacation Bible Schools, Backyard Bible Clubs, Day Camps, and other site-specific work with children. Groups may work at churches, community centers, apartment complexes, children’s homes, etc. The purpose of this track is to provide students with the opportunity to teach and lead children through Bible stories, games, crafts and music.

Games and Recreation Ministry This ministry track is designed to help students use their athletic ability and willing hearts to share the gospel through sportsmanship and Christ-like attitudes. These tracks are located in children’s centers or homes, apartment complexes, community centers and boys and girls clubs. Games and Recreation tracks will not always have the opportunity to lead Bible stories or share the Gospel directly, but will focus more on relational evangelism through intentional conversations. This track ministers to people of all ages, from Pre-K to High School and even adults.

Painting, Construction, and Yard Work Ministry Students in this track will spend their time doing yard work, repairing, cleaning, painting, and light construction work. These tracks work with various organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and local housing authorities to meet the physical needs of churches, schools, families and individuals. Students in this track will be encouraged to share the love of Christ with people they are working for and with people they encounter through their work.

Social Ministry This ministry track provides students a variety of ministry opportunities for meeting the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs of people. Students in this track may minister in: mentally/physically handicapped centers, nursing homes, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, food banks, clothing closets, furniture distribution centers, refugee ministries, prison minis- tries, Baptist Centers, Salvation Army Sites, and other community organizations with similar purposes. Students will work both directly with people in the community as well as behind the scenes.

Special Needs Ministry This ministry track is designed to meet the needs of children and adults with special needs. Ministry opportunities will include Bible teaching, crafts, music, sports and recreation, eld trips and more. Ministry will take place at community centers, in children’s homes, at nursing homes, etc.

What We're Teaching April 19,26 & May 3 2017

What We're Teaching

Who are the people you enjoy hanging out with most? Your friends, right? They laugh at your jokes, reply to your Snapchats, invite you to the movies, and hang out with you, even when you smell bad or show off your terrible dance moves. And whether you have a huge group of friends or just one BFF, they can have a huge impact on who you are now and who you become later. But have you ever thought about how you got those friends in the first place?

Maybe their family just happened to move in down the street from yours or you ended up in the same ballet class. Maybe you randomly sat next to each other in Chemistry or you just happened to play the same sport. While none of those are bad ways to make friends, it’s strange that we leave such an important part of our lives to chance. Perhaps that’s why the Bible has so much to say about how we choose and treat our friends. As we look to the Bible for advice about our friendships, we’ll discover that one of the best things we can do for our crew is to be their friend on purpose.

Parent Cue April - May 2017

It can be difficult to know how to influence our teenagers. We give advice. They act like we’ve lost our minds. We give encouragement. They roll their eyes. Even when our teenage sons and daughters are respectful, it can feel like they’re not listening. But we all know who they are listening to. They’re all listening to their friends.

At this phase, one of our greatest opportunities to influence our kids is to have a relationship with their friends. And, it isn’t always as difficult as it sounds. Having influence with a teenager doesn’t mean you have to wear skinny jeans and know the names of pop stars. It doesn’t mean you have to throw lavish parties or have the coolest house on the block. Sometimes having influence is as simple as having them over to your home.

What Teens Think Is Cool

What Teens Think Is Cool

Recently an article was shared with me from google on what teens think is cool. I found this a great read and wanted to share. 

 

"The purpose of this magazine is to provide a glimpse into the world of teens in the US through the lens of what they find cool. Cool is an indication of what people pay attention to, what gets them excited, and can often act as a manifestation of their hope and dreams. Unlike millennials, this group is ambitious, engaged, and feel like they can change the world. For Generation Z, what’s cool is also a representation of their values, their expectations of themselves, their peers, and the brands they hold in the highest regard. What you’re looking at is proprietary research conceived and executed by the Brand Team for Consumer Apps at Google. We hope it serves as glimpse into the minds of the most informed and connected generation yet"

Think About This

You may have a toddler right now who won’t leave your side. You know the kind. The kid who’s glued to your leg, velcroed to your arm, who keeps wanting you to read the same story again, and again, and again. It’s driving you nuts some days, isn’t it? It’s hard to believe, but one day, they’re going to withdraw. Ask any parent who has middle schoolers. Or teenagers. It happens...they withdraw.
