Parents, this is a reminder that you are invited to our parent meeting on Feb. 25 at 5:00pm.  We will get some food at the barn and then meet in the youth house.  This will take place during the Fuel hour.

Our topic is Tech-Sensible Parenting, which corresponds with our current lesson series on media discernment.  What can you expect at the meeting?

  • Practical, Bible based discussion on technology, media, and wise decision making in parenting
  • Interaction and story-swapping…especially about media issues
  • A tasty dinner
  • Other print resources

Everyone who attends will have a chance to win a free book, The Tech-Wise Family, by Andy Crouch.

Please RSVP to help us plan on food.  Contact Kevin Freeman or the church office.

Fuel: Discerning Media – “Stressed Out”

This Sunday at Fuel we will

have a chance to evaluate media according to God’s message to us.  How will we do that?  By investigating the song “Stressed Out” by twenty one pilots.  The Atlantic calls this song “the anthem of millennial anxiety.”

It brings up biblical themes about how we handle stress, the point of our work, and the goal of life.  My prayer is that students are awakened to view their lives according to God’s purpose, not any other one.

Take a look at the 3(D) guide provided by the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding on this song.

And don’t forget – Parents are invited on Feb. 25 for a special parent meeting – with dinner.  RSVP if you can and arrive at 5:00pm in the barn.

ReCharge Camp IMPORTANT Update

So far we have 13 students registered for ReCharge Camp, plus space for four chaperones.

At this point, all camp registrations go on a waiting list!  This means Skycroft has to confirm space is available before we can add you.  It also means the sooner you register, the better.  I am hopeful that we can add more spaces, but I had to release the extras we had reserved or face a hefty charge if we released them after Feb. 15.

Future slots will be added on a first come, first served basis.

Sunday School: The Gospel is for Everyone

Our lesson this Sunday covers the different ways God brings the gospel to different people.  This week, share how the truth of the gospel came to you when you came to faith in Christ.  Do your kids know your salvation story?

Take it even further with this conversation sheet.

Fuel update on Media Discernment PLUS a Superbowl commercial activity!

This Sunday at Fuel we will begin the process of learning how to make wise media choices.  If you didn’t know, the average teenager consumes 9 hours of media content daily.  Our goal is to train them how to do this right.

 

If you want a leg up on this, use this Superbowl Ad-Filtering resource.  It’s simple.  Just pull up the commercials online and move through the questions on the sheet.  If you start doing this sort of thing as a family, you’ll find yourself making helpful evaluations of much more than commercials!

How does your family carry out the Great Commission?

In Sunday School we’ve been learning about the spread of the gospel, especially through Paul after his conversion.  It brings up a good question that all believing families must ask:  How are we spreading the gospel?

Perhaps this discussion sheet will help you talk about how well you are doing or how you might improve.

A Global Mission

In our youth Sunday School curriculum we have moved from Unit 1 – The Spirit Who Empowers – to Unit 2 – The God Who Sends.

This coming Sunday covers the first missionaries sent by the church.  The main point is God calls His church to send and support missionaries to those who have never heard the gospel.  We should realize that missionaries are not a “them” but rather US.

Here’s a discussion sheet you can use to further the conversation at home.  You might want to team up as a family for a mission trip and use that experience to live out the mission in your own neighborhood as a result.
