How are we supposed to handle money? We’ll talk about that at Fuel this Sunday…with a pretty fun game, too.
Come ready for great discussion and helpful advice that will help you learn about your own value and how we value money.
By the way, we’re hoping to have an extended series on financial stewardship in the coming months for high school students. Stay tuned!
In Sunday School this week we’ll take a look at Esther’s life. She had to trust that God was working his plan even though there was know way of knowing.
We’re in the same boat sometimes, ourselves. Here’s a conversation sheet to use with your student.
See you Sunday!
In Sunday School this week we’ll discuss the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple following the exile. This was no easy task. Much like a camping trip, where we’re scrambling for supplies, everything was more difficult for the Jewish people who came back to their land and had to start from scratch. Their task involved trusting God in the face of opposition, too.
We’re told in the New Testament that we ourselves are temples and that the Holy Spirit dwells inside believers. This begs the question, “How is your ‘temple’?” How is your heart? Sometimes we need to rebuild it – or at least do some maintenance to ensure we are following Christ faithfully.
Take some time this week to discuss this with your teen. Use a discussion guide to help you.
This week during Sunday School, our youth will discuss the return of God’s people from their exile. They’ll see the struggle it can be to make worship our first priority. The Israelites returning had an uphill battle just to get settled and rebuild their city. They had to learn that our worship of God must come first. Everything else follows our priorities.
This is a great discussion opportunity for you and your student. Use this sheet to help bring it up: tgp_win17_oneconversations_05
If you are a high school student, age 14+, and are looking for SSL hours (or are just looking for something to do), we have a lot of need still for the Upward concessions. Basically it is Saturdays from Jan 7th through Feb. 25th from 10am to 2pm preparing lunch orders in the kitchen. See the link below if interested. Any necessary training can be provided.
Weekly signup for Upward concessions kitchen crew
Looking for help on Upward game days in the kitchen preparing hot food for our Upward teams, staff, and fans! This is a great way to support the RBC Upward program without having to make a huge commitment. You can sign up for a single week or all eight, whatever fits your schedule. If you would like to volunteer, but aren’t kitchen trained, just add a comment on the timeslot you sign up for and we can make arrangements. I am hoping for 3 people each week, but if a particular day is filled, and you would like to help anyway, come join us, the more the merrier!
RBC Closures Due to Inclement Weather
The church office and all week day daytime activities will follow Montgomery County Public Schools when it comes to delayed openings, closures and early closures due to inclement weather. For week day evening activities, the Minister or Director of the activity will make a determination and the information will be available by 4pm of the evening in question. For weekend activities, the Minister or Director of the activity will make a determination and the information will be available at least 2 hours before the event begins. All of these changes will also be reflected on the church website (top right rotating picture) and on the office phone message for special announcements.

Humility is one of those lessons I never want to have to learn the hard way. Unfortunately, in my slow-witted sinfulness, sometimes the only way I can truly learn humility is to experience some painful humbling. But that humbling has fortunately never been so hard as what Belshazzar faced. His stubborn pridefulness resulted in a very public end to his kingdom and even his life! This Sunday we will see that God opposes those who remain prideful against him.
You have a great opportunity to discuss the topic of pride and humility with your teen this week. Just use this as a guide. Hopefully we can all learn to humble ourselves before God has to intervene and humble us himself!
