Bible Bowl 2017

Every year our church participates in Bible Bowl. This is a Bible knowledge competition for children and youth. Questions are multiple choice from a predetermined set of books from the Bible. This year was on Mark, Philippians, and Colossians. There were over 300 teams of four students from over 70 congregations representing six states. The event is hosted at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, TN.

This year we had an exceptional group of children and teenagers, six teams in all, and they all did so well. Everyone competed in the main rounds (four rounds with 25 questions each) and we had three teams make it to the sweet 16 team competition. Congratulations to everyone who participated. We pray that the knowledge of God goes beyond the mind into the heart and guides our future leaders in life.

A Wonder-ful VBS

What a blast. This year’s VBS is over. It was filled with lots of learning, joy and laughter. We learned about the Bible and how it is the God’s guide for our lives, the Book of books, with incredible Impact, our Bedrock, our Love letter, and how we need to Explore it. Thank you to everyone who made VBS as success this year: the people on stage and behind the scenes; the helpers who prepared food, crafts, stages, and games; and all who came and participated, young and old. A special thank you to Mr. Buddy Wonder who made a special appearance on Day 5.

Operation Arctic under way

DSC_2977_00002Vacation Bible School has started. This year the kids and adults learn all about the BIBLE and how important it is. There is time to learn, play, craft, eat, and watch. Missed the start? Don’t worry, you can still come to see the rest of the activities. VBS goes through Thursday evening. Come, check it out, and bring a friend. We are having a lot of fun!

 

Operation Arctic 2017

Join us for our Vacation Bible School, where kids will have fun while learning from the Bible. In this day and age, it’s vital that we teach our children that the Bible is more than just a dusty book of stories. We need to show them God’s Word connects to every area of our lives and is as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago.

Vacation Bible School starts Sunday July 9 and goes through Thursday July 13, 2017 at 6 p.m.–8:45 p.m.

 

Youth Ministry:

JYM Spring Retreat 2017:

       Recently our youth ministry participated in a Spring Retreat with three other youth groups (White House Church of Christ, Main Street Church of Christ, and Lafayette Church of Christ). The theme for the retreat was “Mayhem.” We were playing off the AllState Insurance Company’s point that “Mayhem is everywhere.” We began the weekend by addressing the fact that inevitably there will be storms in each of our lives. Then we talked about how we can prepare ourselves for those storms, and we emphasized the importance of having a firm foundation in God.

       The students participated in a couple of object lessons that emphasized that we need each other to get through the storms of life. In the first object lesson the students got into pairs, and one student was blindfolded, so they could not see. The other student had his/her hands tied behind their back, so they could not use their hands. They had to walk up the hill to the mess hall to eat lunch this way. They had to completely rely on each other to move around and to eat. Once again, the lesson was that we need each other when the storms come.

       The second object lesson was a prayer walk at night. The students were divided into small groups, according to their age and gender. Each group had to carry a cross that weighed up to 110 pounds, similar to what Jesus had to carry when he was on his way to be crucified. The cross was heavy, and the students needed each other to help carry it all the way across the camp. The lesson was very humbling, and it emphasized once again how much we need each other during the storms of life.

       I believe each of the students had a great time, and I believe they learned valuable lessons about preparing for the storms of life. I hope they remember to grow their roots near God, our only true source of life, and I hope they build a firm foundation in Him so that they will stand strong when the storms come!

Youth Area Wide Fellowship

Recently the Joelton Youth Group has gotten together with a few other youth groups in the area. Different congregations have hosted these events and this past Sunday it was time to meet at Joelton. We had a great time with praising God, sweet fellowship, tasty food, and playing games. Thank you to everyone who came and everyone who made this evening a success.

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
