Prep for Wednesday Night LSM - 12/10

0
12:03 PM
Hello Everyone,

Tonight is our Tacky Sweater Night. Please come dressed up, it will be fun! We will have cool ways to go through the story of Jesus' birth. From a story reading, to a movie and then a sermon. All fun and interesting ways to portray the significance of that special night in history with the students. We will have cookies and hot chocolate, games and fun. And most importantly Jesus. Once in small groups kids will just have time to hang out with their friends and Small group leaders. This is the last week of formal LSM. If you haven't taken time to go through the story of Jesus birth with your kids I highly encourage you too. Luke is a good place to start or print off the story from online somewhere that might be age targeted for you kids.

Please note that next Wednesday is Downpour. This is a worship service for everyone! Please come and invite friends and family. We are trying to fill the whole sanctuary! 6:45pm-8pm Service starts at 7.

Cant wait to see your kids soon!

December Timeline! Check it out!

9:36 AM
Hello Parents,

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! It's already December, and we are already looking toward Christmas. Its going to come quick. I really enjoyed the sermon this past Sunday, reminding us to slow down this December and remember what it's all about.

This Wednesday, or tomorrow, will be Christmas on the Square. Please feel free to come hang out with the students and many parent volunteers. We will be Passing out hot chocolate, and making ornaments with people. Its going to be fun and a great time to build relationships with church members and community members. We would love for you to be there. It will be from 6-8pm Wednesday Dec. 3rd. Come say hi!

Dec. 10th will be normal LSM times 6:30-8pm, this will be a tacky sweater party. We encourage kids to dress up and have some fun with it. We will show a video over the story of christmas and I will talk for a little, along with Small parties in each Small group room.

Dec 17th will be Downpour, this is an event for EVERYONE! Please make sure to be here. It will be from 7-8, but please arrive at 6:45, we will have coffee and hot chocolate in the foyer before people can enter the sanctuary. Downpour is a worship service, we will play worship for one hour, but it will be different from a normal church service. Take some time out of your busy schedule to come and worship your Lord and Savior, it will be worth it I promise. It's really powerful, and what better than worshiping with the next generation of kids. Being role models to them. For more info on the event please email me at Josh@lifewayfamily.org.

No LSM Dec 24th, since its Christmas Eve.

No LSM Dec 31st, since its New Years Eve.

Follow up from LSM Nov. 21st

6:29 AM
Hello Parents,

Luke 6:46-49        

          This past Wednesday went really well. A lot of the kids learned a lot from the lesson and I believe will try to apply it to their lives. Small groups went really well! Kids kept the conversations up and asked many question trying to learn the material better. We ask that you talk to your kids about building a foundation of Christ in their lives, and what it looks like to do that.

           We unfortunately do not have LSM for the next two weeks. Below on an earlier post is a schedule for the next month. I will put the rest up soon.

Happy Thanksgiving!

            If you are interested in helping on Wednesday nights with the kids, please email me at Josh@lifewayfamily.org

           Also, don't forget we are now selling Long sleeve shirts supporting LSM and the camps for summer 2015!

Topic and announcements for LSM Nov. 18th

0
11:29 AM
Hello Parents,

        Well its almost time for Thanksgiving! I'm super excited because Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love being able to eat as much as possible with family and watch football until you pass out. #AmericanProblems. Haha just kidding but I do really love it. With that being said this is the last week I have with the students before Thanksgiving! I can't believe how fast time has flown by. It's crazy to me.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE!!!!
       
              - No LSM Nov. 26th because thats the day before Thanksgiving.
              - No LSM Dec. 3rd we will be volunteering at Christmas on the Square in Celina.
              - No LSM Dec. 24th thats Christmas Eve
              - No LSM Dec. 31st thats New Years Eve

         We are Selling LSM Long sleeve shirts for $20 starting this coming Sunday, the 23rd. This is going to be one of our many fundraisers to help support the kids to go on summer camp 2015. Please purchase one to help as well has have an awesome shirt! the graphic for the front of the shirt is seen below. You can purchase one on Sundays after big service or email me at Josh@lifewayfamily.org.


           This wednesday we will be going over Luke 6:46-49. I really think this is an important lesson to learn, building your faith with a good foundation. Many times people accept Jesus as their Lord and savior and never put anything more into it than that. Then wonder where He is when they need him. Who says that how your relationship with Christ should be? The Bible doesn't say that, it tells us to pursue God, learn his ways, truly understand him more. Because a storm is going to come and its up to you how you build your faith. Will you build it wisely with a firm foundation and when the storm passes you will still be there along side Christ, or will you call Jesus Lord, but never put any time into it. Then when the storm comes you wonder where He is and walk away from faith? Because Jesus warns us this will happen. Where are you at?

         Please talk to your students about this topic as it is a vital lesson to be learned in this fast paced, self-centered world we are living in. Thank you for the opportunity to be a Youth Pastor to your students, I thank God every day.

Hey Parents,

        This past Wednesday was great, we hung out and played games with music playing at the beginning. We started check in's for the kids last wednesday and it went really smooth last night. Everyone got checked in and plugged in. We kicked it off with an awesome worship song led by Brooke Williams and Michael Entrop on the keyboard. We moved on to a dance competition on stage that actually went really well. A lot of laughter and actually some skill showed up on stage. We went over the topic and watched the video mentioned in the last post, all the kids seemed to be very receptive and hopefully learned or confirmed thoughts. Please follow up with your students this week, see how their walk with Christ is doing, and answer any questions they might have. You are the biggest role model in their lives and I pray you help them with their walk.


          - NO LSM Nov. 26th!!!!

          - Christmas on the square Wednesday the 3rd from 6-8pm. We will not have LSM because we will be serving there. All kids and parents are invited to come fellowship there. Please email me to get plugged in to a serving opportunity for that night. Josh@lifewayfamily.org

          - No LSM Dec. 24th
