Weekend Teaching Series: You Own the Weekend: Capo High School (week 3 of 5)

Sermon in a Sentence: We try to fill our life with so many things … but only Christ fills.
Service Length:
 63 minutes

Understandable Message: This week two students took on the message they had chosen – Nikki (I blogged a little bit about her last week already) and Bryce (the president of the school’s FCA). Both of them were incredibly comfortable on stage and did a great job teaching about the hole inside all of us that students try to fill with so many different things. They were both honest about their past journey and struggles and really helped students understand their searching for what they hope fills them is a perilous and in the end, empty pursuit. They did a great job!

Element of Fun/Positive Environment: Great environment this weekend – the coffee cup became synonimous with the idea that Christ fills, so the room was decorated with lots of cups and coffee beans. They also had a funny video about Jesus pouring water on people, helping them realize they needed His filling. Lots of student greeters and energy.

Music Playlist: Cups [Anna Kendrick cover], Go, Our God, God Above All

Favorite Moment: The inflatable cougar mascot head filling up our whole entryway. Love it. Oh, and the high school principal came to youth group. So awesome!

This is Niki.

This weekend she spoke in our high school ministry. She was the main speaker for Capo High School’s You Own the Weekend (YOTW) and did an incredible job at our annual student-led services. I love her journey of the past 4 years:

Freshman year – atheist, but on the Capo YOTW decorating team
Sophomore year – became a follower of Jesus, shared testimony
Junior year – started serving, director in the video control room
Senior year – totally sold out to Christ, taught the message

Incredible. Stuff like this makes it all worth it.
