Saddleback HSM Weekend in Review: Volume 261


Weekend Teaching Series: ICON (series finale, week 3 of 3)
Sermon in a Sentence: JESUS is the Light of the World, let Him shine through us.
Service Length: 79 minutes

Understandable Message: This was the series finale for the ICON series this past month. It was a great series completely focused on the Life of Christ – Jesus is the way, the bread and the light. This weekend we challenged students to a) accept the light of Jesus in their hearts, and if they have already to b) shine bright for Jesus into the world around them. We talked about how light is attractive like a bug zapper), how light guides us (like a flashlight), and how light protects us (like a lighthouse). We talked about how each of these qualities are

Element of Fun/Positive Environment: Lots of students involved in the youth services these days – very proud of them and our program was strong as well. Great music and a fun game called Pictionary Showdown where we had 2 teams compete against each other on IPads trying to draw funny objects and phrases. So classic, and so fun. We also have a couple of great videos, including the “How to Ask Someone to Homecoming” which was an immediate hit with our students as well.

Music Playlist: You Are, Give Us a Passion, Go

Favorite Moment: I really liked this series – and there’s something special about the Fall before we get hit with all the homecmoings of the next month and the pressures of school start to pile up before the holidays. I got to teach all 3 weeks of this series as well, so fun!

Up next: Worship Together Weekend – October
