NEW TEAM UPDATE

Zach and Sierra.jpg

A couple of months back, Jolani Yeager transitioned out of her role as the Connections Director for the NYM team and into a different role with Northridge. Graham has been filling that role for the past 4 months and is very excited to announce the addition of a new teammate who will now take the connections role: Zach Laskowski!

Zach is an awesome guy who is passionate about what God is doing at Northridge Church. Zach is married to Sierra, who has been serving on staff at Northridge for over two years working with Graphics and Digital Communications. Zach is currently pursuing his Biblical Studies degree from Eternity Bible College. He enjoys eating Chickfila, cheering for the Indianapolis Colts, and helping more students look more like Jesus! Here's what Zach says about stepping into this new role: "I'm so excited to work with this incredible team to see more students more like Jesus. God has done amazing things through NYM in the past and I can't wait to see what he does in the future." If you see Zach around, be sure to welcome him and introduce yourself!


TONIGHT

Crew Nights.jpg

Last week was our first week of Crew Nights, and we had a great time with our students diving into some tough topics and discussing them with our crews! We kicked off a series called Real Life, which looks at the book of Philippians to see how we can experience real life through a relationship with Jesus Christ. To learn more about the series check out the video below!

Tonight is Crew Night 2! We’re going to be discussing the topic of Real Confidence in our crews, what does it look like to have real confidence? Are we living in confidence or are we living in fear of death? We will take a look at Philippians and see that we are able to live a life free of the fear of death because Jesus conquered death. We see that in Christ we have the ultimate reason to live, and no reason to fear death. The video tonight deals with some very real issues like the fear of death and the reason why we live, and so we encourage you to keep the conversation going with your students beyond Wednesday night. Below you can find some discussion topics to keep the conversation going.

Bottom Line: Real confidence comes when we know that Jesus conquered death.

Discussion Topics:

  1. “Death is a very real thing, is it something we should fear?”

  2. “What things are you living for right now? What does Jesus say we should live for?”

  3. “What does it mean that ‘Jesus conquered death?’”

TONIGHT

Crew Nights.jpg

Tonight we will be kicking off Crew Nights with the first one of the summer! Crew Nights are a little bit different from our normal program, it’s a time when we allow to students to hear from some different teaching and go deeper with some bigger group discussion!

This summer we will be going through the series Real Life. This series is all about how to have real connections in a world that is becoming increasingly more disconnected. To learn more, you can watch the trailer below! Tonight’s topic is all about real friendship. We’re going to go to the Bible to learn about what makes up a real friendship, and how we can find it.

Bottom Line: Real friendships start when Jesus heals our shame.

Ask This:

  1. What does a real friendship look like?

  2. Do you have people in your life that you can call real friends?

  3. Do you feel like you have to put up a front in your friendships?

Evan will be wrapping up this weekend about prayer with a talk about the impact that prayer can have on our lives and the lives of the people that we care about. We will take a look examples in the Bible of when prayer caused change, and we will deal with the question of: “what about when it doesn’t seem like my prayers get answered?”. We have loved learning with your students and challenging your students to grow, and it is our goal and our prayer that they will be able to take what they have learned and use it to grow closer to Christ!

Tonight Evan is going to be following up is introduction to prayer, and is going to be walking us through the Lord’s prayer. We’re going to be learning what it is like to pray how Jesus prayed, getting away from distractions and entering into a close relationship with his father. What we’ll see is that one of the most important things about our prayer life is the understanding of the God that we pray to.

Tonight we will be hearing from Evan Woodall as he Introduces the topic of prayer. Evan will be looking at many passages throughout scripture to teach us that God wants to have a relationship with us, and he wants to do it through prayer. Evan will break down one of our common misconceptions about prayer - we think that prayer starts with us and ends with God, but we see that the Bible teaches us that prayer starts with God and ends with God. God pursues a relationship with us first and prayer is our response.

Last week we kicked off summer with our Party on the Pavement, and it was a blast! We were able to welcome our incoming sixth graders for the first time, and we’re excited to have them join us this week as well!

We have a great night planned, and if your student doesn’t want to play dodgeball don’t worry! We will have plenty of other games and activities available, as well as lots of spectator seats. Students are encouraged to dress up in red/white/blue so get creative!
