OVERFLOW has finished our "Purity Series" and is now continuing in our adventure into the lives of some significant men and women from the Old Testament. We’ve already studied Joshua, Samson, and Ruth. This week, we examined a passage from the life of David. We saw how God led Samuel to choose David to become the next king of Israel, even though David’s older brothers appeared to be more suited for the job. We challenged students to consider how they view themselves and others.
Well, our URGE Series has finally hit it's final week, and what better way to close out our 8 week long discussion but with God's FORGIVENESS. The past two months has been quite a journey for us as Pastors, you as parents, and OVERFLOW students. This topic can be uncomfortable for many, awkward for most, and challenging for lots. I know we felt all sorts of different emotions as we journeyed through this sensitive topic.
We've been having Honest Talks About Sex & Dating for 5 weeks now and have hit on some great topics, scriptures, and have engaged in some great discussions during small groups. My hope is that during this series your family has taken the opportunity to discuss this topic in greater depth.
This week we're taking it back to the basics and discussing some practical ways to setup boundaries. Here are 6 Practical Boundaries that may help. Discuss these families as a boundary, and add on to them if you can. Which of these sounds helpful and what are some boundaries you can implement today! Have fun!
When it comes to Pursuing Purity in our lives, we find that there are many factors that war against us. One of the factors can simply be that we don’t understand the other person. Last Sunday kicked off our Third Sunday in “The Urge” series. It was entitled “The Difference Between Guys and Girls.”
Well, we are about halfway through our discussion on Pursuing Purity & it's been incredible to be apart of the conversations that have been taking place. I feel as though our High School group is being challenged to think from a Biblical perspective rather than a worldly perspective, which at times seems easier.
