Back to School mini-retreat 
In the past we have done back to school lock-ins and back to school day trips. This year we wanted to try something different.  We thought a mini-retreat would be a great way to start off the school year. We will use the time to hang out, play some games, and have a couple of lessons. 


BIBLE STUDY WITH YOUR TEEN 
If your teen is thinking about getting baptized or has already been baptized, I have a set of 3 Bible studies that I would love to do with your teen. It gives us a chance to study God’s word together and look at some important biblical subjects. It also gives me a chance to spend some one on one time with them and get to know your teen better. Let me know if you are interested, I am very flexible on when we can do the Bible studies.


Upcoming Events
8/20 – Back to School – Area Wide Devotional – 
       5pm – 8:30pm – Highway Church of Christ – Dinner Provided 
8/25-26 – Back to School Mini Retreat – info sheets at Welcome Center 
9/10 – Teen Devotional – 6:00-8:00 – dinner provided 
9/16 – Escape Room – 4:00 – 8:30 – $20 + food 
       $ DUE: 8/30 for Escape Room 
9/20 – Sam Jeffrey – Special Wed night Speaker


Wednesday Night – T. J. Davidson (song leading – Tyler Jones/ Luke Isom)
Identity (2/3)
Many times teens are labeled because of past mistakes they have made. Jesus tells us that when we are in Christ we are a new creation, the old is gone, the new is here (2 Cor. 5:17). We don't have to let the guilt of our past mistakes define our future. God wants us to forget what is behind and press on toward what is ahead (Phil. 3).


Sunday Morning – T. J. Davidson
Saving the Lost (3/3)
We are on our last week of talking about Saving the Lost. We have talked about what should motivate us to share our faith. Then last week we talked about what it means to be Salt and Light to our friends. This week we want to get very practical and discuss situations that teens are put in when they could share their faith. Sharing our faith should be easy and natural like talking to a friend. And this week we are looking at some "real life" scenarios where teens will have a chance to put into practice what they know.

Wednesday NightT. J. Davidson (Arron Isom – lead singing)
Identity – (1 of 3)
We are starting a 3 week back to school series about our identity.  Identity is such a big issue for teenagers and it becomes especially hard when school starts back up.  This first week we will be looking at our identity in Christ and what that means for how we interact in the world.

Sunday Morning – T. J. Davidson

Love Your Neighbor (2 of 3)
2 – Salt and Light

Evangelism in our culture happens primarily through being salt and light to those around us.  For the most part, gone are the days of knocking on doors and setting up Bible studies.  The best way to Evangelize is through talking to your friends about Jesus or as I like to call it Frangelism (Friendship + Evangelism).  Talking about God does not have to be this awkward, unnatural event but it is like talking about a best friend that you have.

News and Notes
Deadlines – Just wanted to try to communicate clearly.  The “deadlines” we have for trips are going to start becoming much more “firm” than they have been in the past.  When I first started at this church almost 9 years ago, we had 50 teens in the youth group, and I could get away with teens signing up late and turning stuff in late, it wasn’t as big of a deal.  Some of you parents might be used to this.  But we have 100 teens in the youth group now and teens can be flaky (as you probably know) so until they turn all their stuff in and pay it is hard for me to know if they are really going on a trip (so many say they are going and then back out and I get stuck with the bill).  Because of this, payment deadlines are a must.  I do accept payments early so if you want to pay earlier than the deadline that is perfectly fine J.

Upcoming Events

8/25-26 – Back to School Mini Retreat – info sheets at Welcome Center

Wednesday Night – T. J. Davidson (Easton lead singing)
At Camp last week, I heard teens pouring out their heart and so many of them feel inadequate and are in desperate need of approval (aren’t we all).  So, we will spend this time encouraging one another.  We will spend some time singing and then write notes and words of encouragement to one another.  We have done this before and it is always a favorite of the teens.

Sunday Morning – Dale Warren
Dale will be speaking this Sunday and the next while the teens are in Nashville and the Sunday right when we get back.  Dale will be speaking about what it means to follow Jesus and how we share our faith with others.

Wednesday – Prayer Stations

Wednesday night we are doing prayer stations.  If you don’t know what this is, it is a favorite of some of our teens.  We set up different stations in the Teen Center and give them a chance to think, meditate, Read Scripture and pray about different subjects.  In our incredible busy and fast paced culture, it is VITAL that we slow down and spend some time with God.  For some of our teens this is one of the most spiritually uplifting things we do.

Sunday Morning – Rob Gerst

Salvation (week 2 of 5)

Rob will continue to talk to the teens about what it really means to be saved.  We have some pretty bad misconceptions at times and Rob is helping us to have a clearer understanding of what Salvation looks like.

BTW, this series is a part of our PHASE ministry.  If your teen is asking questions about Salvation check out the PHASE station at the Welcome Center or on the church website at http://www.cabotchurch.com/salvation/
