Weekend Teaching Series: IMPACT OC Weekend (1-off)
Sermon in a Sentence: An entire youth group meeting designed to help students learn to serve and hear stories from last year’s Impact OC Spring Break mission trip.
Service Length: 70 minutes

Understandable Message: This weekend I taught the message with the help of Hannah Rich, the director of our spring serve trip and 2 students who shared their stories of serving others. I taught the first part of the talk, then we had a video interview of one of our students and a live testimony shared as well. We looked at the life of Jesus as an example for us to follow.

Element of Fun/Positive Environment: This was a fun weekend – lots of student involvement and a great way to teach students about serving while modeling it on stage and on video. I’m counting on this trip being great – fun to challenge out students to serve there, in their schools and at church!

Music Playlist: Go, Tell the World, Wake, All I Am

Favorite Moment: This weekend we canceled the 6pm service (the 2nd of 4 identical youth services we do every weekend) because our pastor asked (last minute!) for all of our students to join him in the adult service this weekend. It took a minute to get our bearings, but then we jumped into action to make it happen. When our pastor speaks, we move!
