Have Amazon Prime? Then you’ll want to watch this.

Captivated Documentary

If you have a teen or tween, then I highly recommend watching a video about our media culture and how Christians can respond.

It’s a documentary called Captivated: Finding Freedom in a Media Captive Culture, and right now it streams free on Amazon Prime!  Don’t have Amazon Prime?  You can borrow the DVD from our Church Library.

Video description:

Everywhere we go, we are surrounded by screens. Have we entered a techno utopia or a virtual prison? Get ready to be inspired by this award winning documentary. Find insightful answers to tough questions from media experts and church leaders. Hear inspiring stories from families and individuals who have found freedom. Discover how the Bible addresses the unique media challenges we face today.

Watch the trailer:

Upcoming Training

What else are we doing on this important topic?

In February the youth will be equipped in learning how to evaluate the media they consume.  We’ll

do this through a resource called 3-D guides from the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding.  Youth will learn a series of steps – Discover, Discern, Decide – to help them understand the worldview behind media.

For parents, we will hold a training in February during one of the Fuel meetings.  The topic?  Tech-Sensible Parenting.  This will help you prepare your children to engage media in a way that honors our creative God.

Have a Merry Christmas!

Youth Christmas Party Info!

Each year we enjoy an exciting event in the youth ministry, our Youth Christmas Party!  Held during our 5:00-7:30 Fuel time, the party is a highlight for our students.  Here is what you need to know:

Bring a gift.  A $5 or less wrapped item for our gift exchange.  “White elephant” gifts are always fine, but we encourage some parental oversight on it 🙂

Bring food.  We will provide ham, but we ask that youth come with some food to share.
Grades 6-8: Bring a side/appetizer to share.
Grades 9-10: Bring a dessert to share.
Grades 11-12: Bring a drink to share.
Families with multiple grades:  You may either focus on one of the categories that apply for a large dish, or bring smaller dishes that apply – whatever works best for your family.

Wear funky holiday socks (optional):  If you want to amp up the festivity, come with your toes adorned in some holiday excitement.  Or wear something else festive, if you choose.

So what will we be doing?  The night centers on fellowship, including some fun games and our gift exchange.  We’ll have a short, testimony devotional as well.

Youth SS on Dec. 3: The Day of Pentecost

As we prepare to remember the birth of our Savior, we will also remember the birth of the Church.  God calls us to rely on the Holy Spirit as we share the gospel.


We’ve had some special Sunday School series, lately, so it will be nice to get back in sequence on these email resources.

Take some time to use the discussion sheet to bring up this topic with your youth.

High School event for Dec. 1: OCC Processing Center

On December 1, High School youth will be able to sign up to serve at the Operation Christmas Child Processing Center in Columbia, MD.

Space is very limited for this event, so I highly encourage you to sign up ASAP!

Click here to begin registration.  Note: Registration is a two-step process.  A link in your confirmation will allow you to complete step two.

This event is a great way for our high school students to serve AND hang out at the same time.

Basic schedule:
4:30  Meet in Barn parking lot to load up and leave
5:30  Get a bite of fast food to eat (bring money for this)
6:45  Arrive at processing center
7:00  Shift begins
10:00  Shift ends, head back to church
11:00  Pick up at RBC (main lot this time)

I am excited that our high school students will have the opportunity to do an activity that is just for them.  The beauty of this event is that they get to spend time with each other while serving.  If for some reason we do not get enough high school students, I will open up the form for those who are 13 and older to sign up.
