This week, we are continuing Fall programming by starting a brand new series called, "We Are NYM"
Northridge Church has an exciting opportunity to host the Compassion Experience here at our church. The only problem is, it's the same weekend as our Wkend Fall Retreat, October 6-9. We wanted to provide an option to allow families to do both The Wkend & The Compassion Experience
Check out this video for what we are planning to offer:
This Wednesday Night
We're Teaching This:
This week we will begin the first week of our series "We Are NYM". This series is designed to walk students through our five values and show why we do what we do every week. Our goal for this series is that students would walk out each week challenged to live out and take ownership of the values of our student ministry (Worship, Community, Grow, Serve, Invite). Tomorrow night Joe and Graham will be speaking on the value of Worship, which is the foundation of everything we do at NYM. We will begin the talk by defining worship as "a response to what matters most to us." We'll be examining the question: What am I worshipping? If it's not God, why not? God is the only one worthy to be worshipped and students were made to worship Him!
Bottom Line: We Are Created to Worship
Both Middle School and High School will be looking at Psalm 95: 6-7 to issue a challenge to be reminded that we were made to worship the Lord. Our hope is that this bottom line will become a staple of NYM. A thing that students can remind to one another to encourage each other as they go throughout their daily life. We appreciate your prayers and realize we would NOT be what we are without YOU and YOUR prayers. We will continue to partner with you in praying for radical life change amongst your students!
- What matters most to you right now? How are you responding to it?
- If it is not God, what is getting in the way?
- What steps will you take in making God matter most in your life?
- How can I help you in those steps?
- What are some goals for the beginning of the school year?
- How can you achieve those while still having God be the center of your worship?
