Weekend Teaching Series: Armed and Dangerous (1-off)
Sermon in a Sentence: Put on the whole armor of God.
Service Length: 73 minutes

Understandable Message: The weekend after Thanksgiving I asked my friend Aaron Crumbey (everyone calls him AC and you can check out his blog here) to teach our youth services. He talked from Ephesians 6 the classes message on the whole armor of God. He did a great job – AC is a great pastoral care leader in our ministry, so when he speaks to students it is obvious from his stories that he is heavily invested in their lives. I love having different voices speak to our students!

Element of Fun/Positive Environment: We played “The Last Game You’ll Ever Play” that involved a little shock buzzer from Amazon, which was both hilarious and entertaining. Everyone loved this simple game, and for sure were glad that they weren’t picked to play. Even for a holiday weekend we had great energy and students excited to be there. We also featured a 5-station World AIDS Day tour in our gym, so had lots of students volunteering at all services as well.

Music Playlist: Jesus Lead On, All I Am, Tear Down the Walls

Favorite Moment: I loved watching students pray for requests in the World AIDS Day walkthrough. It was a great moment to think outside of themselves and to care for those inflicted with this disease. There was a cool social media Photo Booth as well where student leaders would write statistics or facts on their hands/arms and they could take pictures for Instagram. Strong!
