Saddleback HSM Weekend in Review: Volume 263


Weekend Teaching Series: Wisdumb (week 2 of 3)
Sermon in a Sentence: The path of wisdom is marked by many choices. Make wise ones!
Service Length: 70 minutes

Understandable Message: I got to jump back in the teaching saddle after a week off to help move along the Wisdumb series by teaching on making wise(r) choices while on the path to wisdom. It was fun reflecting on the choices I made, good and bad, during my teenage years and had a chance to explain the importance of wise choices and how they affect our future. We discussed the Biblical process for decision-making, including slowing down a big decision, talking to trusted advisors, and making sure you have all of the facts before you make the call. Super basic but hyer practical message for students about to enter a crucial decision-making life stage.

Element of Fun/Positive Environment: We played one of the most clever games we’ve made in a long time – Movie Mashups where we had fake movie posters mashing up two complete movies together. Students had to guess from a mashedup synopsis as well. Aboslutley hilarious game for a couple constestants on stage as well as the stdents watching the game. Brilliant and perfectly executed.

Music Playlist: We Shine Your Great Name, You Hold Me, Love Came Down

Favorite Moment: This was another double homecoming week so attendance was down. That’s never fun – but to help draw students back on Sunday morning we had a fun extreme pancake breakfast between morning services. It was so fun and delicious – our volunteers are superheroes who ran the whole thing from start to finish!
