Due to inclement weather conditions, Redland Baptist Church will only have 11:00am worship on Sunday, February 18. The sidewalks will be shoveled and the parking lot will be scraped and salt put down before 10:00am on Sunday to prepare for your arrival. There will be no 8:30am worship or Sunday School.
Stay safe and warm and see you on Sunday at 11am!
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.
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.
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.
ReCharge Camp will be June 17-22!
Costs per camper are $290.
Check the camp page for full details and registration. Early bird registration ends after Tuesday, Feb. 13!
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.
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!
Redland Baptist Church will host one of this year’s VBS Regional Clinics held by the BCMD! VBS workers from the surrounding areas will be attending workshops on Lifeway’s VBS Curriculum “Game On!” on Saturday, February 24, 9:30am-2pm (lunch included). To learn more about this clinic and for non-Redlander registration, click here. If you are a Redlander, please register with Peggy Peek or our RBC Camp Directors (see contact info below) by February 22.
If you are a Redland adult or youth planning to work with RBC Camp this year or just considering the idea, we HIGHLY recommend attending this training! You may use this workshop in place of one of our standard RBC Camp training sessions, and it will be free to Redland members.
For more information, contact Peggy Peek at (peggypeek at redlandbaptist dot org) or our RBC Camp Directors at (rbccamp at redlandbaptist dot org).
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.
