Hey Emerge – Brad here – I’d like to thank Alexis for putting together tonight’s post. She’ll be joining our blogging team more often now! Feel free to leave a comment to welcome her to the team! 🙂 Here’s what she wrote:

Good evening , Happy Wednesday  (also Happy Last Wednesday before school start again!  – Yes, we had to go there!)

Tonight was a bit different than usual. We spent a good amount of time chatting before getting started with a few announcements. Here’s that info:

  • We’re going to Park City on Friday! We’ll leave the church at 5:30 pm (For those of you who are always late, that’d be 5:00 pm) and return later on Friday evening – probably around 10:00 pm.
  • See You At the Pole is Wednesday, September 26th. We’ll have more info for you as we get closer!
  • We’re still working on collecting money for PennDel’s Cup of Water / Water for Life thing. Please bring change/money! 🙂

After the announcements, Heather & Corey passed out “goal sheets” for the upcoming school year and asked the teens to fill them out.

Goals for the 2012-2013 School Year

  • My spiritual goal this year is:
  • My academic goal this year is:
  • The people I would like to share my faith with and/ or invite to youth group are:
Next, a packet of information titled “How do I share God with people of different beliefs?” was passed out and we spent some time looking through that and discussing it, as well as the various religions/beliefs that each of the characters in the series have. The one belief that we talked about is Agnosticism (God can’t be proven or disproven)

I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14 NIV)

The rest of the night was spent discussing various things, including life and such. At the end of the night, Corey prayed for each of the teens and then we headed our own directions.

QOTW: What are your goals for the upcoming school year?
