Middle School Service Opportunity: Harvest Sunday 2014

harvest sundayOur 6th-8th grade students have the distinct honor of helping with Harvest Sunday each year by sorting the donations we receive before they are distributed to our neighbors.

Jump Sky High Party

11

This Saturday from 10:00 to 12:00 the High School Ministry will be having a great time at Jump Sky High which is an indoor trampoline gym that’s a lot of fun. Because they won the Trunk-or-Treat contest the 9th grade will get in free and everyone else should bring $20 for two hours of jumping. Also, and this is very important  you must have a parent complete this waiver before you come or they will not let you jump!

Just to be clear, everyone in the high school ministry is invited, the 9th grade will get in free, everyone else bring $20 and EVERYONE MUST SIGN THIS WAVIER.

Middle School Dinner Tonight: Wendy’s @ 5:30

Hey Middle Schoolers and Middle School Families! Let’s get dinner tonight!

Meet me at the Wendy’s on Thompson Ln. tonight at 5:30 to grab dinner before heading over to church for an awesome night of games, discussion, and card-making for some of the members of our family who often get ignored or forgotten (Read more about our Wednesday night experiments here).

Love you all and I hope you’re able to make it! If you’re lucky, you might just get a free Frosty out of me :)

- Jesse

Wednesday Night the 22nd

Christ_heals_tne_man_with_paralysed_hand

We’ve been calling Wednesday nights “Experiments in Following The Way of Jesus.” Experiments are great because the goal is not perfection but learning and you can learn a lot from falling short. While our first experiment (hosting our new friends from the Islamic Center of Nashville) was a huge success, well… let’s just say we’ve learned a lot from the second one. No one ever said trying to follow Jesus’ was going to be obvious or easy (actually, I have heard people say that, it’s just never been easy or obvious for me).

After reading Mark 3:1-6, our idea was to take part in the healing of those we often overlook and we chose to see if there were any Woodmont members who have a difficulty getting to church that would like some students to visit them. We (read, Sue Mullican) rented vans and called quite a few people and it just wasn’t working for them. One was having medical procedures, another didn’t have time to get their house ready, others didn’t know if the people taking care of them would be able to move their schedule, and some just didn’t want it. However, one thing God has taught me while working with teenagers is, sometimes the ones who seem most opposed to friendship are the ones who long for it most and its best to find creative ways to show them you really do see them.

That’s what we’re going to do tomorrow night. We’re going to find creative ways to show them we know about them, we’re here for them and we want to be like the Jesus who sees them. Ok, we’re going to write them cards, and it won’t be as “wow” as hosting Muslims but it isn’t about the “wow.” It’s about learning how to live like Jesus.
