AWANA update

AWANA Update

We thought we would catch everyone up on what has been going on in AWANA up to the halfway point this year. We have been blessed with new teachers, some new equipment, and lots of new faces. We have made several changes to the curriculum and the format of our program this year as well.

We changed the opening ceremony in order to incorporate more worship and to allow us to have a devotion time that gives an opportunity for leaders and students to share a devotion. We hope it is an chance for those who felt led to be able to grow in their gifts.

There are many new faces in Sparks this year, and we are excited to see that class grow. Mrs, Debbie is doing a wonderful job with this class!

TNT has some new faces as well, and one of those faces belongs to a new teacher! Eddie and Dawn have done a great job of really helping TNT students internalize the scriptures that they are learning.

Journey is using a new curriculum this year that is designed to encourage discussion and engagement. Mrs. Beth is also getting some help from Ashley and Jeff – and she needs it, there are lots of new members to the class!

Game time has been changed up a bit too – Ashton is now our games director. She brings lots of new creativity to the games.

 

While there are many changes to our program, the goal remains the same – to help kids grow in their walk with Christa and learn the scriptures. We are looking forward to 2017! Merry Christmas!

2016 VBS – High Seas Adventure

2016 VBS – High Seas Adventure

We want to thank everyone who helped make our 2016 VBS a success. To the folks who decorated and helped with setup, the kitchen team, teachers, game director, van drivers, crafts, and everything thing else – THANK YOU!

We had a special VBS this year:

  • One of our youth taught a class (Go Spencer!)
  • Ashton had awesome games and did a great job in her first time handling activities for VBS
  • and most importantly… 8 kids began a new relationship with Jesus!

We hope you will come join us next year for VBS… this is how Second Baptist lives out the gospel of Jesus!

2016 – ascend^ – summer camp

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. – Phl 3:14

ascend^

We had another great camp this year – we spent a week at the Ocoee River. Our theme was “ascend” – and we explored:

  • the ideas of our minds ascending over the thinking of this culture we live in,
  • our service in God’s Kingdom ascending as a thank offering,
  • the mountains we each have to ascend in our growth
  • the promise that one day we will ascend in the final expression of our salvation to be with our Lord

We did our best to capture some of the moments that give you sense of what camp is like in the slideshow above. We were so blessed to worship at some unique places – at the creek and at the lake were two places where you could sense God’s presence in His Creation. We went rafting, horseback riding, played paintball, conquered a high ropes course, did a team building course, played slip-n-slide wiffle ball… and tons of other things.

We try our best to ensure that camp is a time of focused growth and a time where our youth group (we call it Collide) grows a little closer. If you are interested in being apart of our camp or Collide, we would love to share more about what we do here at Second Baptist.

Until next year… God bless.

2016 Easter Egg Hunt

2016 Easter Egg Hunt and Cookout

We had such a great day at Second Baptist – sharing the story of hope of Jesus’ resurrection, hunting eggs, and having a great cookout.

Tomorrow is Resurrection Day (also known Easter) where we celebrate the Risen Savior! A little over 2,000 years ago, the disciples were gathered together, grieving and scared. They did not know that just one more evening was all that was between their great sadness and the greatest event that has ever occurred in history. The shadow of the cross, the finality of a stone rolled into place, and the fear of the unknown would all soon be swept away by the great victory over death. Jesus would arise!

Luk 24:46-52 KJV – 46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And ye are witnesses of these things. 49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. 50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
