Dating Right – Youth Fuel Sunday

image (21)

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!

Mission Trip Location Confirmed. We’re headed to…

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.

Summer Trip Meeting THIS Sunday, Jan. 29!


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.

Esther, part 2 – Sunday School, Jan. 29


This Sunday in Sunday School we will take a deeper look at the life of Queen Esther and learn that God calls us to look beyond what we can see and trust in Him for deliverance.  You may know that part of the point of this great book of the Bible is to show that God is often at work behind the scenes, even when we can’t see Him.  This is especially helpful for those spiritually “dry” times in our lives.

Here is your weekly conversation sheet.

DON’T FORGET – WE HAVE A SUMMER MISSION TRIP MEETING THIS SUNDAY!  It will be held in the Barn during the SS hour.  See our mission trip page for more information.

Fuel, Jan. 29

image (19)

Following last week’s lesson on handling our money in a way that pleases God, this week we will talk about handling our time properly, too.  Since we are in the middle of a church-wide emphasis on prayer, we will focus on spending time with God in prayer.

Using Matthew 6:5-15, we’ll what Jesus taught people about prayer, and we’ll find some “helps” that can assist our teenagers in finding a proper attitude of prayer. Prayer is a conversation with Jesus and does not need to contain certain catch phrases, fancy words, or special body positions. At first, most junior high students are uncomfortable praying out loud or making prayer a regular habit outside of church or small group-unless they’re in trouble!

Here’s how you can take this topic even deeper with your teen:

  • Electronic communication is great for a lot of reasons, but how strong are friendships that don’t include some sort of face-to-face time? How does this relate to your friendship with Jesus?
  • Are you pleased with how frequently you pray? Why or why not?
  • What might be some creative ways of praying that you could try?
  • What are some ways we can pray together as a family?

Have a great week!
