  • Winterfest: 
  • It is a youth event for 7-12th graders (+ chaperones).
  • $50 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT IS DUE ON NOVEMBER 6TH for each teen! The deposit is only $30 for chaperones (we have to have your deposit in by this date, so we can mail the check to the hotel in time to cover the deposit on the rooms!)
  • Total Cost: $110 for teens

$70 for chaperones

  • The unofficial list has now become the official list since we are getting closer to the due date! If you want to take your name off the official list, please let me know! Otherwise I will assume you are going to Winterfest, so you will need to make a deposit by November 6th. Tonight please tell me the t-shirt size you want, so I can go ahead and start ordering those. Get excited!


  • Service opportunity:
  • Sad news: I found out 2 days ago that the volunteers for the service project this weekend have to be 18 years or older. So if your parents can help, that would be really awesome! Otherwise you can still help by donating candy.


  • Upcoming Event:
    • Rake & Run: (November 12th: 10am-3pm)
      • A fun service opportunity where we rake leaves to help people make their yards look nice!
      • We will be joining up with another youth group (Clarksville Church of Christ), and we will be helping people in our own congregations by cleaning up their leaves.
      • Please RSVP (text, call, or talk to me in person) if you think you want to come! It’s going to be a lot of fun!


  • Upcoming Teen Devo:
  • November 20th:

-We are going to do a combined devo with 2 other youth groups! (Main Street Church of Christ and White House Church of Christ)

  • Main Street is hosting this one at their church at 5:00pm, so we will meet at Joelton Church of Christ at 4:15pm to load up on a van to drive to Main Street (in Springfield).
  • Main Street is providing the food, so just bring your Bible and yourself, and it will be a good time! (FREE DINNER)

New Website

A big thank you to Morgan B. and many others who have worked so hard for this website redesign. It’s been a lot of work but I hope everyone agrees this is a great redesign. Look around and let us know what you think.

The Magic Bank Account

Sam Hagan shared with me “The Magic Bank Account”.

“Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 into your account but there were rules to follow:

  1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.
  2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account; you may only spend it.
  3. Each morning the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.
  4. The bank can end the game without warning and close your account permanently.

What would you personally do? Would you buy anything and everything you wanted? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for; even for people you don’t know, (you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself).

Would you try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning?

Actually, this bank is real and a deposit is made into your account each morning. The deposit is “TIME”.

  1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life.
  2. When we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is not rolled over; what we haven’t used up that day is forever lost.
  3. Yesterday is forever gone.
  4. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING.

So, what will you do with your 86,400 seconds? Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars. Think about it and remember to use wisely every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think. Invest wisely; love deeply; enjoy life. It is a gift from God!

Thank, You, Father, for the gift of LIFE!
