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.
