THE POPULAR ONES

There are some extremely popular verses found throughout scripture, but more often found on someone’s social media page along with a picture of a sunset over the ocean or an accompanying story that may not or may not be true… and no I didn't mis-type. Typically, it is easy to take these powerful verses within scripture and remove them from the context in which they’re written, thus making them say something they never intended to say.


This series is made to help prevent that from happening as we take 10 of the most popular verses found within scripture and put them in their appropriate context allowing us to generate an accurate translation. Our goal is to allow God to speak to us from these verses, rather than us allowing God to speak to us the way we desire him to.

THE LAYOUT

6:00PM - MAIN GATHERING


6:30PM - STATION 1


7:00PM - STATION 2


8:00PM - STATION 3

THE STATIONS

For the majority of our time, students will be broken into three groups by grade: 7th and 8th; 9th and 10th; 11th and 12th, and will cycle between three half-hour-long stations.

 

ACTIVITY (30min)
This will be a time of fun and interaction. It will be a sport, a game, or some form of action that brings students together and allows them to enjoy their evening.

 

QUESTION & RESPONSE / PRAYER
Designed to help students grasp what was learned from the main teaching. It will also be a time where students in each group will pray for each other and specific requests each week.

 

APPLICATION

Learning about God and his character is only good if we find ways to use it. Thus, this section will be finding creative ways to apply scripture the lives of the students.
