Easter Jam

This may be the first time ever families are celebrating Easter at home. That means that little kids and teenagers, middle schoolers and college freshmen will do something on Easter along side their parents and even grandparents. 
Easter Jam is an Easter Celebration BIG enough for the whole family. It has everything you need to have a fun, memorable, and family-centered celebration around the Easter story.  Check back here on Sunday Morning for the event link. 
 
Until then, you can begin to prepare for Easter Jam in the following ways:
  1. Gather these supplies before Easter Jam:
    1. 2 Peeps (or large marshmallows)
    2. Microwave
    3. Microwaveable plate
    4. Toothpicks
    5. Marker or Sharpie (optional)
    6. At least 10-20 pairs of socks
    7. Laundry basket
  2. Invite friends and families to participate!
Easter Jam is for every family, no Bible-trivia trophies required. The content is designed to help all families have a low-risk, high-fun conversation about faith even if this is your very first church experience.

Easter Coloring Page – NEW DEADLINE!

Easter is next Sunday, and we want you to help us celebrate. We would like for you to color in an Easter coloring sheet that will get used during the Easter service (check out the sample of one completed).  These are the instructions:

1. Print out a copy of the Easter coloring page HERE.

2. Using markers, crayons, colored pencils or maybe an iPad to color (please color in the ENTIRE page).

3. Scan in or have your parent scan your completed coloring page to a phone, iPad, or computer. If you need help scanning, use these instructions FOR IPHONE or FOR ANDRIOD.

4. Email the scanned page to JIM TUCKER by Wednesday at 6:00pm.

These flowers will become a virtual flowering cross for us to celebrate the risen Lord on Easter Sunday!

High School Spring Retreat

When: May 1 – 3, 2020
Where: Ocean Isle Beach, NC
Cost: $200

SIGN UP – Registration Open from March 15th – April 26th

Join us for a weekend of worship, small groups, devotion, and fun as we explore our Legacy.  We will travel by van to two beach house to relax and fellowship together.  More details will be released a few weeks before the trip.

We need adult chaperones willing to spend the weekend with the students leading small groups and participating in worship and games. Use the sign up link above to let us know you can help.  We will select the chaperones from the adults who sign up based on the number of students going.  We will notify the potential chaperones after the sign up closes.

Legacy – If you were going to write a letter to someone and yet you knew that it was possibly one of the last letters you ever wrote, how would that impact what you include or not? This is exactly the situation that we find in Paul’s second letter to Timothy. Though many of Paul’s letters are written while he is under house arrest, this letter most likely was written while he was in prison because of the Roman Emperor Nero. He’s lonely and struggling, and he knows the end could come at any point. 

The book of 2 Timothy explores Paul’s words as he sets out to pass on the legacy of his ministry to Timothy.

We’ll use this letter to think about our own legacy and how our experiences can help those coming after us.

d365 provides inspirational and relevant reflections on scripture for young people. The devotional experience is written especially for students and seeks to provide reflections on themes that impact our faith journey. The hope is that d365 will create a quiet space in your life for meditation and prayer. A new devotion is available every day online or through mobile devices.

Weekly Events

On Sundays

Sunday School
Every Sunday at 9:00am.
Students are figuring out who they are as they search for whose they are. Sunday morning provides opportunities for students to explore their personal and communal identity in Jesus Christ through meaningful community-building experiences, engaging Bible study, and relevant learning activities. Biblical stories will come alive in new and creative ways. In response to God’s amazing, unconditional love, students will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ’s disciples. Our curriculum is based off the Revised Common Lectionary so will align with the worship and preaching texts each week.
