Weekend Teaching Series: Fact or Fiction (series kickoff, week 3 of 5, Josh speaking)
Sermon Synopsis: This week I went after the FACT that friends are a BIG deal. Also, I got to assign the topics to everyone, so I definitely may have given “Is the Bible true?” to Tammy last week and next week’s “Is Hell real?” to Mandy. Hey, I was tired from a long summer! BUT, friends are super important and a topic we cover regularly for sure. This week we talked through the power of friends, the caliber of your friends and the quantity of friends needed to be successful in junior high.Kids always respond to this talk because it always seems to be a felt need!
Service Length: 65 minutes
- Key Scripture: Proverbs 18:24
Element of Fun/Positive Environment: This week we played a member-only mega hit game, the Fiesta Olympics. It was SO fun – in my review of the product I left some feedback to improve how we ran it this weekend, but it was STILL super super fun. A big departure from our normal screen games (which our kids love) it was more contestant on a game show type experience. SO great,
- Pre-service music: Spotify Mariners JH Playlist
- Countdown Video: Dancing Squirrels Countdown
- Worship Set List: Great Things, God So Loved
Student Involvement: We had a student helping lead/host the game this week, which was super fun. As always a robust team working the tech booth (this is a huge highlight in our ministry right now) and had a TON of cleanup this week. The game was more than a little messy … and amazing!
Favorite Moment: The Fiesta Olympics were SO fun! Burritos flying everywhere. SO SO good.
