Hey Emerge, Happy Wednesday!

Tonight we began with our typical chat time, followed by some announcements.

  • Spaghetti Dinner – Our spaghetti dinner fundraiser is THIS Sunday following the morning service. Please be here during Sunday School (9:30) to help with setup & such. If you have any questions, send Heather & Corey an email.
  • Glow Bowling – We’re planning to go Glow Bowling on Sunday, February 24th from 3:30 to 5:30 (we’ll leave at 3 and return around 6). The cost is $5. Keep that date open 🙂
  • Convention – There isn’t much new to report here. If you’re planning to go, we NEED your $50 for convention registration by next week. (That $50 does NOT include the hotel, which will be taken care of soon as well).

After the announcements, we moved onto our time of worship. Tonight’s songs were “I Am Not the Same” by Unhindered, “Revelation Song” by Kari Jobe, and “The Stand” by Hillsong. Following worship, Corey prayed, the we moved into tonight’s message.

Tonight we talked about Jesus the slaughtered lamb. The key verse was found in Isaiah 53:7-8.

7 He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was punished.

After discussing that, as well other names of Jesus, we read two more sets of verses from John 1:29 and 1 Peter 1:18-19. Then, the teens completed two activities. In the first one, they looked at a picture of a lamb and answered a few questions about it. The second activity involved them walking around the church to see if they noticed anything that reminded them of Jesus & his resurrection. Once they returned from the church, they shared what they thought/prayed about in that time.

That’d be all for tonight. See you Sunday! (Be there at 9:30 AM please!) 🙂
