Last night we studied Hebrews 7:22-28, looking at what makes the New Covenant “new,” and furthermore, what the New Covenant reality is for us as Christians. Before getting into Hebrews together, we reviewed the term Covenant – a term we see frequently in the OT. God’s covenants are promises that He makes to mankind, and […]

Last night we spent the evening talking about The Great Commission. In Matthew 28, Jesus gathers his 11 remaining disciples, and He gives them a purpose. Up until this point, in the story of the Bible, it has been all about God. It’s been about God solving the problem of sin and evil in human […]

We hosted 2 other youth groups, and had a joint worship night in which we worshiped in song, sat under the teaching of the word from Zephaniah 3:17, disused application in small groups, and prayed together. It’s a really sweet thing […]

Last night we got back into our study on the “the story of the Bible.” We spent a good portion of our time recapping all that we’ve learned from Genesis 1 to 2 Samuel 7. I’m trying hard to keep helping the students to recap, that way we can really trace the story of what’s […]

Last night we celebrated! Plain and simply, we enjoyed each other company, and rejoiced in the good things that God gives us by doing a silly white elephant exchange, opening the “impenetrable gift,” and trying to decorate a tree by throwing ornaments at it. It was a fantastic evening with the students, and a good […]
