Small Group Leader Update for Jan 25, 2017

WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU CROSS A STEREO AND REFRIGERATOR?

Very cool music.

INFO FOR WEDNESDAY

We have another solid week of youth group planned, but it's going to be even sweeter with you! Thanks for your commitment to middle school and high school students. It's huge!

Up next in Philippians, we are going to talk about five things that steal our happiness, and how to fight against them. Our Scripture focus is Philippians 2:12-18.

Small Group will be an amazing opportunity for you to continue making positive deposits in the lives of the teenagers. Remember, every student is going through incredible change and experiencing outrageous pressure at a time in life when they are least prepared to deal with it. You are a BLESSING for walking the road alongside them.

SMALL GROUP LEADER UPDATE FOR JAN 18, 2017

HOW MANY DALLAS COWBOYS DOES IT TAKE TO WIN A SUPER BOWL?

Only two, Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith, and they are both retired.

INFO FOR WEDNESDAY

We have another solid week of youth group planned, but it's going to be even sweeter with you! Thanks for your commitment to middle school and high school students. It's huge!

Up next in Philippians, we are going to address the issue of conflict. It seems conflict will be inevitable in life, so how can a person possibly be happy in spite of it? Welp, Paul has some insights he wrote the Philippians a couple thousand years ago and they still apply for us today.

WHAT IS A CHEERLEADER'S FAVORITE COLOR?

Yeller.

INFO FOR WEDNESDAY

We have another solid week of youth group planned, but it's going to be even sweeter with you! Thanks for your commitment to middle school and high school students. It's huge!

Up next in Philippians, we'll be learning how we can be happy even in the midst of problems. Better yet, Paul has three insights in his letter for us to actually neutralize or overcome problems. Sounds great to me!

WHICH REINDEER IS MOST DISRESPECTFUL?

RUDEolf!

INFO FOR WEDNESDAY

We'll continue our teaching series, Best. Christmas. Ever. and this week's focus will be on how we respond to seemingly impossible situations.

The sermon in a sentence is, "Do what is right and trust God with the outcome." We will be reminded of the truth that God doesn't expect us to be perfect, but he does expect us to have faith. Let's begin praying for Wednesday night!

WHAT DO YOU CALL AN ELF WHO SINGS?

A wrapper.

INFO FOR WEDNESDAY

Now that Thanksgiving is under our belts (literally), we turn our focus to Christmas. Glorious Christmas!

I don't know about you, but I have this pressure to put out a front on social media that what I'm doing (whatever it is) is the best thing ever. Even if it's not. Even if it's manufactured. Or I'm with a group of people thinking, "How am I going to share this in a way that shows how much fun we're having?" Instead of just being fully present in the moment.

As we prepare for Christmas, we are going to intentionally remove the pressure to have it all together and put our focus on being present with family. We'll read the Christmas story and be reminded of the miracles God did to bring Jesus to earth and how God can still do miracles today.

Happy Thanksgiving!

WHAT IS THE MOST MUSICAL PART OF A TURKEY?

The drumstick.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

We have NO YOUTH GROUP this week, we hope you're able to spend quality time with family and friends.

My family is coming to town, that is, three siblings, two spouses, two nieces, and my parents. It's the second year we've been able to do Thanksgiving together in Colorado, which we are grateful for.

If you have any tips on how to prepare a delicious turkey, I'm all ears. Last year was my first swing at it and, although it went great, I don't want to have a sophomore slump. I am happy to receive any turkey tips and tricks you have.

We are THANKFUL for you and the investment you have with Student Ministry at Southeast. Thanks for the time you spend helping students work through real life issues. Thanks for your willingness to move toward the mess. Thanks for SHINING YOUR LIGHT for the Lord in a way that has the potential to change future generations.

What you do matters. We are thankful for you.
