FREE CAMP OPPORTUNITY!
This year, we have the amazing opportunity to extend free trips to camp to students who are unchurched and unsaved. We are so excited about this opportunity for students to reach out and get their lost and unchurched friends to camp and give God the opportunity to do a work in their lives! Please consider praying for the friends that will be invited and remember, WE ONLY HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF SPOTS!

VERTICAL CAMP FUNDRAISING
This year, student fundraising for Vertical Student Camp looks a little different, and we are very excited about the wonderful opportunity this will provide for many of our students to come to camp (Not to mention helping out parents and their wallets!). Students will raise their own funds to go to camp by asking others to consider donating a dollar amount to help them go to camp, which they will signify on the Vertical Camp fundraising card. Parents of students will sign out this card at the Welcome Desk. Click HERE for the info letter and for any questions please come see us at the Welcome Desk in the Student area or email us at students@churchatthemall.com

CURRICULUM

Dear parents,
 
As we continue our series on the Holy Spirit, our students this week will consider what it means that God lives inside Christians and what difference that makes in our lives. Although God gives us all of who He is, we often tap into only random bits of that. That would be like asking your teenager to mow the lawn but watching him or her grab a pair of scissors instead of the power mower!
 
It’s easy to become frustrated with teenagers when they don’t seem to think something through all the way or use all their resources. Yet we often do that in our relationship with God—and that can be a lot harder to own up to.
 
I encourage you to talk with your teenager this week, using a few questions such as these to get started:

  • If God wanted to really make himself known to you, what would be the best method for him to use?
  • Practically speaking, what do you think it means that God lives inside you?
  • Which of God’s resources do you think you use fully? Which might be underused or unused, and how can you change that?

We’re praying for you! Thanks again for all your support as we partner in ministry with you.
