Youth Groups, Apr. 5
by Kevin Freeman on April 1st, 2020
As Jesus began his earthly ministry, he came to John the Baptist so that he could be baptized.  John was hesitant.  How could he agree to a baptism of repentance from his perfect Savior?  But Jesus insisted that this would be the fulfillment of righteousness.  He was baptized just as he asks us to be baptized into him.  Jesus identified with us fully.The Father and the Spirit gave the added authen...  Read More

Youth Groups, Mar. 29
by Kevin Freeman on March 25th, 2020
Even at an early age, Jesus made clear that he would "be about the Father's business."  He didn't really see a choice in the matter.  Neither should we.  This Sunday we'll explore this solitary story of Jesus the boy and discover how Jesus's actions relate to ours.  Most importantly, we'll ask just how much of a priority we place on our relationship with God.  A very special twelve-year-old demons...  Read More

Youth Groups, Mar. 22
by Kevin Freeman on March 18th, 2020
This Sunday we will cover the dedication of Jesus as a baby in the temple.  God allowed two senior citizens the privilege of holding their Messiah and proclaiming the hope he would bring to the world.    This must have been a powerful experience for Joseph and Mary - a reminder that the Father's hand was at work in the life of the Son, their Son.Do we welcome Jesus with the same enthusiasm and joy...  Read More

Youth Groups, Mar. 15
by Kevin Freeman on March 10th, 2020
This Sunday in our youth groups we will cover the birth of Jesus.What strikes me is the thought that the fulfilled promise of sending the Messiah reminds me to trust God's plan.  The people involved in the coming of Christ had no idea how this was all going to play out.  We have the benefit of looking back, and seeing "all is calm, all is bright," but a great deal of uncertainty was involved.  Tha...  Read More
Lenten Calendar
by Christy Horton on February 26th, 2020
Lent is the forty day season when Christians across the world prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation, and prayer. Many traditions use Lent to focus on self-sacrifice by the giving up something during these forty days (certain food, activities, etc.). Newer traditions have focused on self-sacrifice not in “giving up” but in “doing for” others in a sacrificial wa...  Read More

Youth Groups, Jan. 12
by Kevin Freeman on January 9th, 2020
This Sunday we will discuss the return of the exiles - God keeps his word!  The early chapters of Ezra share about this return and the praise God's people gave to him - even when they were still a bit fearful of attack for open worship.My prayer is that your discussion at home will help you and your family celebrate God's freedom and help reveal areas where you might still live as though you are i...  Read More
Youth Groups, Jan. 5
by Kevin Freeman on December 30th, 2019
God is in the business of restoration.  However, that restoration is reserved for the humble.  The prideful, however, are resisted by God.  This Sunday we'll look at a fascinating book: Obadiah.  It's super short, but it's packed with some powerful truth.  The nation of Edom (Esau's descendants) stood by when Israel was conquered, and they even celebrated the nation's downfall.  God pronounces jud...  Read More

Youth Groups, Dec. 22
by Kevin Freeman on December 19th, 2019
Does the Christmas story still fill you with awe?God actually looked at our sinful, human plight and decided to do something about it.  He came as one of us to do what none of us could do.  Lately we've been covering the time of the exile, seeing that God didn't forget about his people even after they had been carried off because of their own rebellion.  All of us have known the exile caused by si...  Read More

Youth groups, 12/8
by Kevin Freeman on December 3rd, 2019
On December 8, our youth groups will be reminded of God's authority sustaining his people.  Part of this lesson covers Nebuchadnezzar.  You know, the guy who thought he was so great, God let him live like a beast for years until he humbled himself.  I don't know of anyone else who has had that sort of consequence, but I've encountered many who have a pride problem...sometime's it's that person in ...  Read More
