Us for Them Volunteer Email Week 4 - Grow Youth & Kids Ministry Curriculum

We’ve been hearing great feedback from students on this month’s series. We know you’re a grown up, but hopefully this series has been challenging to you in some way, too.

Here are a few things coming up in our ministry . . .

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: THE INCREDI-BOWL BOWLING BALL
This month, we’re getting students together for a fun night of games, food, and (of course) bowling — but it’s bowling like you’ve never seen it before. Mark your calendars!

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: THE US FOR THEM CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE
We’re encouraging teenagers to be FOR others (instead of just themselves) this Christmas with a fundraiser challenge. Get all the details on our website.

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: VOLUNTEER CHRISTMAS PARTY
Let’s celebrate the holidays with a little fun, food, and friends! Come hang with us. There will be games, presents, and zero meetings.

US FOR THEM: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON LOVING OTHERS
WEEK 4 BIG IDEA: JESUS PROVES THAT GOD IS FOR US

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Don’t you just love a little friendly competition? There’s something about being a part of a team that makes you excited to root for “us” and root against “them.” With people and with God, we’re often quick to see others like our enemies, but God invites us to see things differently. In this 4-week series, we’ll explore the stories of Abraham, Jeremiah, Jonah, Isaiah, and more, as we see how the big story of Scripture reveals that God is for us, we’re called to be for others, God is for our enemies, and Jesus proves that God is for us.

The holidays are nearly here, so make sure you’re taking time to pause and care for your soul during all of the busy-ness. Here’s a reminder from Luma Haddad.

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!

When you think about our church, our ministry, or our team, what are you most thankful for?
