Discuss it! The effects of sin

This Sunday the youth will discuss sin and God’s good news during Sunday School.  The reality is that sin corrupts all of creation, but God plans restoration.

You have the opportunity to continue the discussion at home.  Take some time to look over this discussion sheet and discuss it with your teen or pre-teen.  You can get into deep discussion about why we so often play the blame game, how God’s plan solves sin, and what he is calling you as a family to do about it now.

Discuss it: God created all things good.

On Sunday, Sep. 2, students will explore what the Bible has to say about Creation.  The Bible makes it clear that God created all of this world as “good.”  When it came to people, God declared us, “very good.”

We may know this, but we often fail to connect this truth with daily living.  Middle and high school students often struggle with their identity and dislike their personality, physical traits, or social connections.  But God created them very good!

We are giving you a discussion sheet to connect over this topic of God’s creative goodness.  Take some time to talk it over this week.

Also, don’t forget to have a family devotion for this week’s Connecting with the Real God topic.  Click here to learn more about that:

Youth Hershey Park Trip on Aug. 15

Hershey Park 2018

On August 15, the youth will take a trip to Hershey Park! Times are 7:30am-10:30pm. Cost is $40, plus meals. This event is open to students in grades 6-12 (completed). Parents are welcome to come as drivers and chaperones. Register now!

Registration must be completed by July 30 so we can secure group rates and transportation.

Registration link

Please note that we need at least 20 registrations to make this event possible and keep our pricing.

Drop off and pick up:  Redland Baptist Church – meet in main lot
Times: 7:30am – 10:30pm on Wednesday, August 15
Cost:  $40 – pay by cash or check made out to Redland Baptist Church, and turn in to Kevin or youth leader.  If you opted for a meal voucher, add $15 to the cost.
Other costs:  If not purchasing a meal voucher, pack a lunch or set aside money for one meal in the park.  After we depart, we will make one fast food stop, so set aside money for that meal, too.
Other information:  When we get to the park, we will divide into groups of four or more, giving youth the responsibility to meet at assigned check-in times.  Younger groups will have an adult chaperone.  Our plan is to leave the park at 8:00pm, get a quick fast food bite on the way home, and arrive around 10:30pm.  With multiple vehicles, some groups may choose to leave for home earlier.  If we are off by more than 15 minutes we plan to call with updates.
