Knowing God, Sharing Life
COME JOIN US EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT FROM 7:00PM – 9:30PM
Hello parents and youth!
It is September, time to get our awesome youth programs running! I am so excited to get back to our weekly programming and connecting again with all the young people in our community.
I have updated the google calendar (if you like using such a thing) and should be visible on our website: www.brightviewchurch.ca/cor13
There are a few details to go over in this e-mail, please read through it all and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
E-MAIL LIST UPDATE
First point of business is this emailing list. If you no longer wish to receive this monthly e-mail please let me know as soon as possible so I can remove you before the next email goes out! If you know someone who would like to get these e-mails but isnt, please tell me! I will add them to the list right away… if for some reason I dont add them… dont feel bad about telling me again and making sure I do it!
UPCOMING DATES OF INTEREST
SEPT 9 – KICK OFF!!! this is our first youth night of the school year, its gonna be great, dont miss it!
OCT 7 – Small Group Night
SEPT 14 – Midweek study. This year our midweek study will be a little different. Midweek studies will happen twice a month and will be focused on discussing missions and evangelism as well as taking time to plan and prepare for SERVE. This will include discussing fundraising, travel plans, and more. If you are interested in participating in SERVE next summer (first week of July usually), then come on out to our midweek study on the 14th. If wednesdays dont work for you but you want to come to SERVE, then come talk to me directly and we will keep you informed of the planning going on so that you can participate and attend SERVE still!
Thats it for special dates at this moment…
COR12 is a student leadership team. I usually make up this team of students who show an interest in being more involved in planning and supporting the youth ministry. These are also usually students in grade 10-12 (focusing on older youth to feed back into the program). I have not yet finallized this years COR12 team, so no dates for the first meeting has been set. I hope to have this figured out before Kick-off and can hopefully begin meeting on the 16th.
This year at COR13 youth we will be studying the “meta-narrative” of Scripture. We will begin in Genesis 1 and finish the year with Revelation 21. We will be looking at the big story of Gods work in human history. We will see Gods intention for creation, the fall of man, Gods work to redeem humanity, focusing for a time on the work of Jesus, and finishing with Gods ultimate glorification. If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to reach out.
