Happy Wednesday friends!
This past week in Sunday school, we continued our discussion on what it means to be reformed. We touched on how the reformation came about, why it came about, and learned a little about the key players in our vein of the reformation (Calvin and Zwingli.) I gave each student the option of bring home a packet to show you guys, but I think only two or three took me up on that. So I'll upload a fun chart here for you to see if you're interested.
IMPACT continues to go very well. This week we heard from Sinath Duong about the cool things that God has been doing in his life, and wrapped up the night with some dodgeball. As we move deeper into the program year, we hope to keep incorporating more leader testimonies so that our students know that there are members of the congregation who struggle like they do/did, and are willing to walk alongside them.
Fellowship Fridays are back on the horizon! As the Zeeland football season is drawing to a close, it is our hope to get those Friday nights back up and running. Those nights served as an invaluable tool to get students comfortable with the group of students that regularly attend youth group, and more likely to attend other church related events.
As we continue to find new ways to evangelize, there is some good news! After much conversation with the Zeeland schools superintendent, we were able to find a teacher sponsor, and get permission to have a Bible study! While this doesn't allow us to do any sort of evangelistic work, it is a step in the right direction for us youth pastors. Every student that would like to attend should have you fill out THIS form. This also would allow me to take your student out for lunch if they so desired! These are huge steps for us! Thanks to those of you who have been praying for a breakthrough like this. We can say thank you prayers now!
