“Crazy Love” – Sr. High / “The Story” continues Jr. High

Sr High

This Sunday, the Sr. High will begin studying Francis Chan’s Crazy Love with Mike & LeeAnn. 41gainjwfpl-_ac_us218_There is no other study that has impacted our group as much as this study has. Form groups have used phrases like “Life Changing” and “Incredible” to describe this book and study. You will (hopefully) never view God and your relationship with God in the same way again.

I recommend getting your own copy of the book.  You can get a Kindle copy for $3.99 (hint: you don’t have to have a Kindle to read a Kindle book…you can download the Kindle App on a tablet, phone, or computer – ask Mike if you need help). The reading is easy…that thoughts are compelling. For those of you who have been wanting to go deeper, this is the beginning of that.

***We won’t have time to get everything done in the first class so If you have time before you get to class, watch this short video and see if some of questions Chan asks are questions you have had.  FINALLY, take a few minutes to watch this video and be ready to answer the question…“Is the guy in this video worshipping God or crazy and using God’s name in vain?”

Middle School

Middle Schoolers will continue the study of The Story. Stephen Kernan will take my place while Dave and Whitney continue to help with Storytelling and Small Groups. This week will focus on Queen Esther. You are almost to the New Testament…everything we’ve talked about has been leading up to the coming of God in the Flesh.

Parents

Bible Classes are a vital part of the church’s role in helping to spiritually form our students into the likeness of Jesus. In addition to the spiritual training you engage in with your children on your own, our regular gatherings on Sundays and Wednesdays can be a source of spiritual growth and communal belonging that can help your child find his or her identity in Christ rather than in anything the world has to offer.

Bridges of Faith

At Lafayette we are blessed to have some people of great faith who are walking with Christ in spite of difficulties and hardships. This Wednesday night, we will meet one of those couples in a new format we’re calling Bridges of Faith.  Daryl and Janice McFarland will join us in the EPICenter for a time of fellowship and devotion and they will share their stories of how they came to know Christ and how they have overcome challenges and tragedy along the way.  I am sure you will leave being encouraged and will want to get to know them more on your own.

Daryl and Janice will join us this Wednesday, Nov 15 beginning at 6:30 PM. We will begin at 6:30 (if you can make it) with an informal time of fellowship that includes a pizza SNACK (eat your real meal before you arrive) provided by our Neotez Volleyball Champions, drinks, and hot chocolate.  At 7 PM we will have a devotional and spend time getting to know Daryl and Janice. I hope you can make it! You won’t be sorry!
