Focusing on Family Dynamics in April

We’re teaching a series during April called "Modern Families" that we hope will be relatable and practical for everyone. We will look at a few families we read about in Scripture and talk about how there are no perfect families, but at the same time, no family conflict is too big for God.
We will also talk about the fact that, when your family changes, God remains your center, and also remind everyone that your family is bigger than you think . . . i.e. the family of God.
As always, thank you for the opportunity to serve YOUR family!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Late summer into early fall is my favorite time of year. Warm days and cool evenings, football season is about to go down and the new school year coincides with a new season of ministry and a lot of great opportunities.  This fall of 2017, in particular, comes with some fresh updates in studentLIFE - including new branding - see above.
The names ELEVATE and PULSE have, over the last 9+ years become synonymous with a specific time & place when & where students meet . . . and we have sensed a need to be more about ongoing, flexible, adaptable, active ministry.
Grades 6-8 will still meet regularly in the student lounge on Sunday mornings at 11a (with a few fun things mixed in), and grades 9-12 will get together with more variety of locations & times . . . in the student lounge, in homes and active as missional communities.
We will be emphasizing studentLIFE more as a whole - with the subtitles of "middle6to8" and "high9to12" when appropriate.  The names ELEVATE and PULSE are being retired "with honors" and lots of great memories.  SEEKERS (confirmation) and SHARE (missions/serving) are still in play.
On Kickoff Sunday, Sept 10, middle schoolers will start a teaching series called "How to Survive Middle School" and high schoolers will start with "IDK" which tackles some of life's toughest questions that many times come with the answer "I Don't Know."  We encourage all of our students to jump right in and bring friends, as always. If you have any questions about anything, please email me (stevej@libertycorner.org) or call my office phone (908 647 0340 #118).

Some New Stuff for a New Year!

It's a new month and it's a new year - Happy 2017 to everyone!!!  Throughout January we have some really good stuff coming.  In ELEVATE, we'll continue to unfold God's amazing tale of redemption with The Story . . . and in PULSE, we're starting a teaching series called "How to Ruin Your Life."  No need to panic, parents, it's sort of a "reverse-psychology" approach to a series on wisdom. No one plans for failure, but just in case someone would like to do so, we'll talk about sure-fire ways it is often accomplished through social media, friendships and dating.  As always, bring your friends as this is helpful stuff that everyone can relate to.

Here's to a really FULL Fall...

Kick-off Sunday, September 11 will launch us into another exciting season of ELEVATE and PULSE.  We will begin a journey with the whole church through The Story, which is a seamless, novel-style Bible that will help us better understand God's story and how our story connects with it.
Invite friends to come along on the ELEVATE Middle School Retreat at Lake Champion (Oct 14-16) and our CONVERGENCE High School Retreat (Nov 18-20).  Online registration for these retreats is easy HERE - or you can click on the images on the right . . . or if you'd prefer to download and print a paper form they're right here: ELEVATE Middle School Retreat or CONVERGENCE High School Retreat

APRIL teaching series

Ready...aim...click! We’ll use the selfie phenomenon as a platform to help us strive toward improving our “selfie” and making our “selfie” more like Jesus. We'll focus less on ourselves and the approval of others . . . and more on God's story. Hopefully, we'll also grasp that embracing who we are in Christ brings about the deep, healthy self-image and confidence that we are clamoring for.  Bring friends to enjoy ELEVATE and PULSE!!
