Weekend Teaching Series: Wisdumb (series premiere, week 1 of 3)
Sermon in a Sentence: What is wisdom, why is it important and how do we get it?
Service Length: 72 minutes
Understandable Message: This week the college pastor, Mike Brook, took students on a journey through the first week of the Wisdumb series. His goal was the help students understand what wisdom is, how it is different than just making wise choices, and where we can get it. All of the Scripture used this month was from the book of Proverbs and we even created a 30-day texting campaign to help students as they worked through the entire book, 1 chapter a day. Great message, and great kickoff message to the series!
Element of Fun/Positive Environment: We had some fun videos spoofed after the Jack Handy Deep Thoughts from SNL forever ago. They were a huge hit. We also had a ton of student greeters, students running lights, cameras and the control room, despite it being the first weekend of homecoming season. The guys also played a fun version of Password, which is actually an older game but felt fresh and new to students who had never heard of it. All in all a solid weekend!
Music Playlist: Wake, Let It Be Known, Forever Reign, Divine and Holy
Favorite Moment: I really like it when someone else gets a chance to speak in our ministry – I love the stage and love to teach but understaad how important it is for differnet vocies to be there and how their styles and stories relate differently to people. Mike did a great job sharing with our students this weekend, and love that they get a glimpse of how college ministry looks in the future, too. Wins all around!
