Sunday recap (November 21st)

We were in the seventh week of our series in Student Quest this week on the book of Romans.  We’re using The Complete New Testament Resource, Volume 1 from Youth Specialties as a launching pad for the series.  I led the middle school while Chris Z led the high school group.  If you want to follow along, you can listen to the high school teaching on our student ministry podcast.  We’ll actually be taking a break from Romans over the holidays – next Sunday will be a special service that is completely student led, with Nick, Kelsie and Jim Bob giving the talks, Tim R. planning worship, and Logan putting together a team of students to perform a drama.  We’re inviting anyone that wants to come to check out the service and be ministered to by our students!  9:45am in the gym!

This week we took a closer look at chapter seven of Romans.  The goal was for students to understand Christians still struggle with sin, and following Christ is a lifelong process.  A great follow up activity for the whole family would be to read Romans 7:15-19, 24-25 together and use the following discussions questions:

  • With which statements do you most identify?
  • Why do Christians still struggle with sin in their lives?
  • How do you feel when you make a promise to God or tell everyone you’re going to change something in your life and a short time later you’re doing what you said you weren’t going to do?
  • What will have to happen for you to change and stop doing the things that are against God and the things that are hurting you?
