If that didn’t get your attention, I don’t know what will! I’ll explain later in this post.

Anyway, tonight began with a shortened version of chat/hangout time, followed by our time of praise & worship. Tonight’s songs were the same as last week’s. If you forgot, they were “Your Love Never Fails” by Jesus Culture, “Forever Reign” by Kristian Stanfill, “10,000 Reasons” by Matt Redman, and “The Stand” by Kristian Stanfill. Following worship, Anna prayed.

Next came announcement(s). The only thing that was really announced was that we’ll be selling hot dogs & sodas at the church’s car show on Saturday, August 3rd. Please plan to be there to help out with that if you can.

After the announcement, we watched a video to introduce tonight’s message.

After the video, Anna began her message, that talked a little bit about the movie, and the message that we can take from it. Basically, we are called to be the light, sharing the love of Jesus with others in our lives. As Jesus said in Matthew 5:14-16:

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

After the message, we spent a few minutes making s’mores in the microwave, but soon moved on to playing some Mad Gab. The title of tonight’s post actually came from one of tonight’s Mad Gab guesses, which was actually an incorrect answer. The Mad Gabbing continued through the end of our time tonight.


What are some ways that YOU can be the light?
