Normally the 4th Tuesday of each month…All youth are invited on March 31 at 7pm to join us in the Youth House. We will learn valuable leadership skills and put them into practice in the context of our youth ministry.
We’ve launched a new series in Fuel on identity and our culture’s lies about who we are and how we attain value. It’s an important study about finding our true identity in Jesus, even if we hear lies all around us.
Our first conversation focused on acknowledging the reality of the lies, based on 2 Corinthians 11:1-15. In this lesson, we discussed how we are all vulnerable to lies—that’s how it’s been since the beginning of time, when Adam and Eve believed the serpent’s deception. We challenged our students to identify the lies they might be hearing about themselves, and we encouraged them to choose to follow truth instead of deception.
As you go throughout the week, help reinforce this teaching in your teenager’s life by asking these kinds of questions as you have the opportunity:
- If we can’t tell the difference between truths and lies, how might that affect our faith in Jesus?
- What are some specific lies from our culture that might hurt or hinder your relationship with Jesus?
- How do you need Jesus’ help in identifying the lies that our world is trying to tell you right now?
- How can we as a family remind one another of the truth and help one another choose truth instead of lies?
Have a blessed week!

We are gathering youth sports schedules and other extra-curriculars – plays, concerts, and other events – so that we can encourage our youth who are involved in them. Step one is to get schedule information, and step two is to organize small groups to go and see them.
Parents, please let me or Amy M. know what activities your youth is involved in. We need:
- Student name
- Activity location(s)
- Schedule (or specific date, such as for a play)
- Contact number
Thanks! We believe God will bring some great fellowship fruit through this! If you’re willing to take a group of students to one of these events, please let me know!
