Weekend Teaching Series:Â I Am __________ (week 3 of 3)
Sermon in a Sentence:Â Bullying is not just wrong it’s evil, and we are commanded as believers to standup for those who can’t do it on their own.
Service Length:Â 75Â minutes
Understandable Message:Â This weekend we covered Bullying. We had a guest speaker named Paul Coughlin. Â He is the founder of The Protectors an organization that helps family’s, schools and churchs deal with the issue of bullying. Â He gave our students a biblical perspective on bullying, Â he really educated our students on what bullying is and what it is not. Â Finally, he gave practical ways students could standup to bullying. Â One of the ways he stressed was for our students to partner up with a friend at school and standup for each other. Â Also, if they saw someone else being bullied that they would standup for that person together. Â He also challenged students who wanted to do more to signup for more info on how to do more in their schools. Â We had 60 plus students signup. Â Very proud of our students for taking a stance against bullying.
Element of Fun/Positive Environment:Â We did a Taylor Swift cover as an opener “Mean”. Â We played a couple of fun new videos â€“ one was the 3rd episode of HSMâ€™s Sports Minute featuring local school sports updates with a crazy twist and the other was an announcement video for our Halloween outreach event.
Music Playlist:Â Hosannah, Never Let Go, Our God
Favorite Moment:Â The song choices after the message this weekend were absolutely perfect. I really felt like the message continued right into the 3 songs â€“ super powerful ending to the message!
