On April 22 and May 6, our students will be serving by completing projects for people within the church. The youth serve for free. If you choose, you may donate to our Youth Sponsorship Fund, which will be used to help those hardworking youth who could use some financial help for the mission trip. Projects might include spring cleaning, yard work, organization, debris removal, etc. … (more)
All of us deal with temptation, but how do we handle it? How can we overcome?
Even Jesus was tempted, and Jesus overcame temptation through the power of God’s Word. This Sunday we will analyze Jesus’ response to temptation so that we, too, can overcome it. Use this discussion sheet to take the conversation even further this coming week.
Join us for our Spring Family Fun Event – Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 15 at 10am! This event is for children birth through Grade 5 and their families. We will have an Easter Egg Hunt on the grounds (indoors if weather is bad), followed by a hot dog lunch. For more information, please contact Peggy Peek, (peggypeek at redlandbaptist dot org).
Tying into our Core Beliefs lesson on the Bible this past Sunday, this verse reminds us to put our faith into practice by obeying God’s Word. Youth can recite this to a youth leader for a candy bar prize!
This Sunday we’ll take a peek at the mystery of the Godhead as revealed in Scripture. We will learn that we can trust God as He has revealed Himself to us, even while realizing that God is beyond our comprehension.

We’re talking about “Dating Right” at Fuel on Sunday. This is part of a miniseries on relationships. Next week we’ll discuss response to authority. But this week we will study Jesus’ definition of love and saw how it contrasts with our common cultural understanding of that word. We’ll also discover that the Bible presents love as a sacrificial act, seen most clearly through Jesus’ death on the cross.
As we plunge into the topic of dating and relationships, we will emphasize that dating should never be done without prayer, a high level of intentionality, and wise counsel—especially from you! Because dating relationships often move toward greater levels of intimacy, young people should seek Jesus’ guidance in all their dating decisions.
For youth who aren’t yet ready to date, we will stress the importance of deciding now how that will happen rather than when one is already in a dating relationship.
Consider asking your teenager some of the following questions this week:
- How do most of your peers feel about dating? How have those attitudes affected your own?
- In your opinion, what are some of the most important things to look for in a date?
- Why is it important to pray and seek wise counsel before moving forward in a relationship?
It’s a joy and honor to partner with you in the spiritual development of your teenager!
Our World Changers Mission Trip location has been confirmed. We are headed to Neptune…that’s Neptune, New Jersey.
(Quick backstory: Our original location had to be changed due to low registrations, so last Sunday we narrowed our choices down to two possibilities)
We are headed to Neptune, NJ and will do ministry involving Hurricane Sandy relief efforts!
Why not our other location choice? We had discussed the possibility of traveling to Franklin, NC – and half our group wanted this choice. However, registration is currently full, so that “closed door” solidified the New Jersey location.
Details will be released soon on schedule specifics. For now, plan on July 8-15 and look for more information soon. Trip page will be updated when those details are clarified.
Parents, don’t forget about our World Changers Pre-trip meeting THIS Sunday, Jan. 29, at 9:40am in the Barn. We will cover pertinent details for the trip. Pasted below are some documents you may want to complete early:
Each participant will be required to have the following forms and documents:
Also, we need to discuss a location change for our trip. There are several World Changers project locations each year. Our particular location – Muncie, IN – has a low sign up this year. We are encouraged to find a new site. Our two workable options (no date changes here) are Jersey Shore, NJ, and McLeansboro, IL. There are also some other options that will be discussed.
Remember – after Feb. 5 the trip cost goes up! Get current trip information here.
