ATOMIC: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON SPIRITUAL HABITS
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: Make it a habit to spend time with God.
Habits! We all have them, so let’s talk about them. Whether you’ve got good habits (like getting enough sleep or remembering to floss) or bad habits (like biting your nails or checking your phone too often), most of your habits are probably small, tiny, hardly noticeable habits. But over time, those tiny habits can really impact your life, for good or bad. So what about your spiritual habits? What are the small things you do every day that either draw you closer to God or keep you at a distance? In this 4-week series, we’ll discover some principles from Scripture that have the power to help you develop tiny habits that can make a big impact — habits like spending time with God, investing in your relationships, sharing your faith story, and worshiping with your life.
Technology. It’s our best friend and it’s our worst nightmare in student ministry. We often find ourselves leaning towards the enemy end of that spectrum as we think about all of the ways phones and devices can be distracting or problematic. However, if we stop and think about it, technology can be a great tool for helping teenagers in their relationships with God and with one another.
