Peanut butter and jelly are a classic pair. Oreos and milk are another delicious combo, and who doesn't like a Wendy's Frosty with some fries? Some things in life, are just better together, and it could not be truer than in the body of Christ. Satan works relentlessly to convince us our little ol' selves are of no great use in the Kingdom of God, but God's word is riddled with reminders that we are better when unified.
In this 3 week series we will set the table for the school year with the challenge to be Better Together by knowing one another's story, sharing our own story, and seeking the unity found in the Spirit of God.
Oct 8 - 22
Seven billion people occupy this tiny slice of history. And it's not by accident. God chose our generation to make a difference–but He doesn’t want us to do it alone. Find out how in Jesus and We.
This four-week vision focuses on four of our new core values that will inspire students and volunteers in the areas of faith, serving, generosity, and evangelism.
Week 1: Faith-Filled, Big-Thinking
We take a look into the important role faith plays in how God works in and through our lives. (Mark 6:5-6; Luke 7:9; Hebrews 11:1-6)
Week 2: Spiritual Contributor
It's no secret that we are surrounded by ad after ad and pressure upon pressure to consume over contribute. It's a what can you do for me world. So how does that work with following after Jesus?
Week 3: Irrationally Generous
Christians should be the most generous human beings on the planet, because we follow a savior who gave everything. But, if it were easy to becoming generous overnight, everyone would be doing it. In week three, we re-visit the bar set by Jesus and the early church on the truth, "It is more blessed to give that to receive."
Week 4: Anything Short of Sin
On a scale of Apathetic (1) to Passionate (10) about seeing lost souls come to know Jesus and the forgiveness of God, where would you land? Are you willing to do anything, short of sin, to reach people who don't know Christ? What would it take for you to reach people no one else is reaching? It's time to break the restraints of apathy and get a taste for the passion of evangelism. (Mark 2:1-5,17)
Oct 29 - Nov 12

Love, sex, and dating are some of the most popular topics of conversation among students. These areas are also some of the toughest issues for students to navigate. They have the potential to learn from them or be scarred by them.
This three-week series will help students learn how God feels about love, sex, and dating. The message isn’t “don’t have sex.” The message is “be willing to wait for when it’s Godly and right.”
Since the topics of love, sex, and dating can be delicate, make sure you’re ready to respond to students’ questions and opinions. Students can dig in to this series even further with the YouVersion Bible Plan for Swipe Right.
