Brainwashed Series Arc

Josh Griffin —  April 2, 2012 — 2 Comments


Super excited about a new series we start in HSM right after Easter. We did a sermon brainstorm meeting and came up with the teaching arc of the series – here it is:

Week 1: Living in the Grey (Josh)
As followers of Jesus, we are to walk in the light. The problem is – the draw to the darkness of the world is pulling us away from the light. Too often, Christians believe the lie that there is a grey area where we can love the light but walk in the darkness. Somehow we have become complacent/lukewarm/brainwashed about living in the middle, in the grey. We have been brainwashed to think that is is okay.

Week 2: World vs. 10 commandments (Parker)
Looking how the world’s way completely is opposite of the God’s way. Take a closer look at each of the 10 commandments and you’ll quickly realize that we all have a choice. So when the Bible says, Do not covet our neighbors things,” we need to realize that the world tells us that we need more and more and more.

Week 3: Transforming Your Mind (Josh)
There is a battle for our mind – how can we have victory? Our minds must be washed in the the glory of Jesus so we begin to think and act in a way that is glorifying to Him. This weekend ends with a special time of commitment and celebration of walking in God’s way. Each student will be given a squishy brain with the series/ministry name logo on it as a reminder of the series, too.

  2. I love the concept of this and the squishy brain is great.

    A team of teens and adults who have a heart for teens have been putting together a project to help kids figure out these grey areas. It is a blog site that addresses many of the different areas that youth struggle with.

    here is a link to one of the most moving ones about seeing yourself as God does.
