The Storms of Life:
.
The Bible has numerous stories about people who suffered and went through all types of trials and storms.  1 Peter Chapter 1 talks about how we all will have to suffer grief in all kinds of trials and how we must weather, endure, and brave the storms that we encounter in life. 
 
 In Mark, we read about a terrible storm out on the water. Think about the disciples in the boat that day--they were on a boat with Jesus and they were crossing the Sea of Galilee when a furious storm hit.  They were afraid even though many of them were life-long fishermen.  What do you think was going through their minds: "Does God care?" "Are we going to drown?"
 
What they did next should be a sign to the rest of us.  They woke Jesus up and asked for his help.  Even though they were afraid, they knew Jesus had the power to help them.  Think about how Jesus must have felt knowing they trusted him to fix their problem. 
While we may not fully understand why storms and trials come our way, we need to follow the disciples' example and seek out Jesus for help and remember this: we do not need to fear the storms of life around us, but instead be calm because we stand secure in Christ.
 

 Sunday Morning Small Groups

High school & middle school classes meet at 9:30 & 11am. Taught by adult volunteers, this is a great small group learning environment where we dive deeper into the Bible and how it relates to the context of our current world.
All classes meet in the E-modular.

Wednesday Evenings for Middle School & High School

 
Middle School & High School Classes
Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm  

If you had to pick a favorite movie, what would you choose?  We love certain movies because of the way they make us feel, or the way they spark our imagination.  Movies often have a way of making us view the world differently, and a really great movie can even change the way we think or even how we behave.

This fall semester, our students will begin a study called, "How Movies Changed My Life."  It takes clips from popular movies and creates relevant discussion to help students begin thinking more deeply about their lives and what part Jesus plays in them. Questions? Adam Love
