Fuel, Oct. 21: God’s Faithfulness

This Sunday we discuss our final session in The Real God – God is worth trusting.  That also means we can always count on him!

Be sure to take advantage of the family devotional –  The companion video is pretty fun:  Closed Circuit.  It reminds us that so many “guarantees” aren’t really to be trusted.

Use this guide to discuss God’s faithfulness.

If you have a free RightNow Media account, you can watch the video there, too.  Do you need to sign up for RightNow Media?  It’s free! Visit rightnowmedia.redlandbaptist.org.

Discuss it: What makes Jesus unique?

During the month of October, the youth have been discussing our CORE BELIEFS in Sunday School.  These are six, non-negotiable elements of our faith.  

YOUR task – find 15 minutes in the coming week to discuss this week’s Core Belief: The Uniqueness of Jesus

One lesson from us doesn’t have nearly as much impact as a heartfelt conversation with your child.  So take some time to talk about it with your teen or tween.  Use our resources page to get some info to talk about.

This Sunday we’ll tackle third Core Belief, the uniqueness of Jesus.  What makes Jesus unique?  Consider his own claim that “no one comes to the Father except through” himself.  Or consider a Jesus who was man but not God, or God but not man.  Could he have fulfilled the task of saving us?  Take a look at those resources, and let me know how the conversation goes!

Prime Time Adults October Update

Prime Time “End of Summer Bash” Recap

Hey Prime Time Seniors!
Thank you so much for attending the “End of Summer Bash” on September 29.  We had a ball!  The food was good and we enjoyed the opportunity to fellowship with each other.
We owe a debt of gratitude to Linda Rowe, who took the lead in organizing this event.  As usual, she did a super job.  Thanks, Linda.
We look forward to our next group fellowship opportunity…our Christmas party in December!!  A firm date will be announced in upcoming newsletters.  Stay tuned.

New Museum In Town

Have you heard about the new museum in Potomac called the Glenstone Museum?  It is a unique museum showing contemporary art in a modern gallery building and an expansive sculpture garden.  It is open Thursday through Sunday from 10:00am to 5:00pm.  Admission is free.  Check it out!

Don’t Forget about our new strength and balance exercise program in the ROC!

Join the Adult Exercise Time in the ROC on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30-11:30am.  Around 10am, we begin a dvd-based series of video exercises to strengthen our entire body and improve balance. We all know that good balance and a strong body are essential for continuing to live an active and independent life. Additionally, good balance is paramount in preventing falls as we age. Come join us and get moving!

Youth Action Teams

One of the key involvements we strive for in Redland Youth Ministry is getting students actively serving in a ministry.  Simply put, teens take a stronger ownership of their faith when they actively serve in ministry.

What this means for youth is that we are encouraging them to sign up on a team that serves within the youth ministry during Sunday School and/or Fuel.

What this means for parents is that you will get some information about the team your child signs up for, so that you can be aware of and encourage it.  Sign ups will take place during the month of October.

Ocean City summer mission trip – Family style

Attention families, we are working to put together a mission trip to Ocean City Baptist Church during the month of July.  Dates and cost will be available soon, but begin praying about making your “vacation” a powerful family mission experience this summer.  Beach time included!  More info coming soon!

October 13 Men’s breakfast. Bring your work gloves.

All men are invited and encouraged to take a few hours for meaningful work on Saturday, October 13.  It all starts at 8:00 AM in the ROC Foyer, where we will enjoy a light breakfast and short devotional.  Then we will gear up for some important church workday tasks.

Task 1:  Install insulation and plexiglass in the Grace in Store room
Experience needed:
None, though some handyman skills are helpful
Why this matters:  The Grace in Store ministry is renovating a physical space that will become a thrift store for the community.  Your efforts will help provide a comfortable environment for people – including low-income residents – buy inexpensive items they need.

Task 2: Run network cables in the Adult Ed wing
Experience needed:
  None.  Matt J. will be on-site to oversee the project
Why this matters:  Our church is extending its WiFi access for personal and teaching purposes. Your efforts will allow members to utilize WiFI and also provide hardwired access for our media equipment.  This means reliable connections for teaching videos and new TVs being installed in some rooms.

The church workday is for all ages and genders, but these are some special projects we’ve carved out as important for our men to accomplish.  Please RSVP by contacting the church office to help us plan breakfast and projects.
