Prayer Request

My back's been more jacked up then normal for the past three weeks. I've been doing what I need to, but it's not 100% yet. Felt convicted today to reach out and ask for prayer. Monday nights we run Skate & Rec Night and I am the main heavy lifter for loading the skate ramps in. We usually have a couple of teenagers to help with tear down. Anyway, just asking for prayer for complete healing and for God to show me any lesson He needs me to learn besides being humble and asking for prayer publicly, which is WAY outside my comfort zone.

Bible Sessions from Monday Night - 9-17-12

Soldiers in The Lord’s Army
6-11 Year Old Lesson 9-17-2012
I may never march in the infantry (march)
Ride in the cavalry (pretend to ride a horse)
Shoot the artillery (clap hands together upwards as if shooting artillery)
I may never fly o’er the enemy (pretend to be an airplane)
But I’m in the Lord’s Army, yes Sir! (salute)
I’m in the Lord’s Army, yes Sir! (salute)
I’m in the Lord’s Army, yes Sir! (salute)
I may never march in the infantry (march)
Ride in the cavalry (pretend to ride a horse)
Shoot the artillery (clap hands together upwards as if shooting artillery)
I may never fly o’er the enemy (pretend to be an airplane)
But I’m in the Lord’s Army, yes Sir! (salute)

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are all soldiers in God’s Army.  Being a soldier isn’t always about marching, riding, shooting or flying.  Sometimes being a soldier looks more like this… Showed soldier helping other soldiers and community people around the world photos on iPad.  Sometimes being a soldier means helping someone you don’t know who needs help. Sometimes it means praying with someone who is sad or scared. Sometimes it means just being with someone to show them you care and to comfort them.
Asked: Who can tell me what comfort means?

2 Corinthians 1:14 – God comforts us, so we know how to comfort others.
Galatians 6:2 – Help each other through troubles
John 15:12 – My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

Today we’re going to make a “Praying for You” poster card for Macy and Jaxson’s mom, Justine.  She has been fighting cancer for most of this year, and she is continuing to fight and go through treatment.  It is very tiring, and I would like each of you to remember to pray for Justine this week.  Also, draw pictures or write a message of encouragement on the poster card.

Memory Verse: John 15:12 – My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
Task: Pray for Justine (Macy & Jaxson's mom) once a day, every day this week.

Being a Servant
12+ Group Lesson 9-17-2012
Jeremy taught on being a servant and how Christ set an example of how to be a servant that we should follow. He discussed that in order to become a "great" person you must first have to be a servant. After I read the passage in John, I had the boys think and share ways they could be a servant to their peers.
Ephesians 5:1-2 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Luke 22:27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.
Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet
John 13:1-20
1 It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
2 The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus.
3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God;
4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.
5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”
7 Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
8 “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”
Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”
9 “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”
10 Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.”
11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not everyone was clean.
12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them.
13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am.
14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.
15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.
17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

Bible Session Notes - September 10th

Bible Session 9-10-12 For 12 and Older Group
Put the World on Hold
What are mornings like for you? Always running late? Chaos and confusion? Where is my history paper?  Where are my shoes? Did I leave my gym shorts at school or what? Mom, I need money for pictures today! I'm going to miss the bus!

Do you ever feel like you have enough time in the morning?

Scientific study after scientific study after scientific study has proven that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Why?

Answers given: need fuel, get started

After "starving" all night, your body and brain need a little boost in the morning to give you the energy to get through the day successfully.  You need to start off on the right foot heading in the right direction or the rest of your day is going to be like slogging through mud dragging a garbage bag full of rocks.

The same is true spiritually.  You've got to start your day off right!

Now you're sitting there saying "wait a minute!  We just discussed how little time I have in the morning.  Now you want me to cram in God?


I want you to put the world on hold.  I want you to realize that your day will go much better if you get your "Bible breakfast" as well as your cereal.

Challenge: For the next week, I want you to read a small selection from the book of Proverbs each morning before you drag yourself out of bed.  Tomorrow's reading is the longest at 6 verses. The rest are only one or two.  Please take this paper to stick by your bed to remind you.

Tuesday: Proverbs 2:1-6
Wednesday: Proverbs 3:5-6
Thursday: Proverbs 4:23
Friday: Proverbs 11:25
Saturday: Proverbs 14:12
Sunday: Proverbs 16:3
