Youth Sunday Songs

28 Feb

Here are the three songs we will be singing on Youth Sunday.  Get to know them!   Sing them loudly and worshipfully!

In Christ Alone

How Marvelous (I Stand Amazed)

Blessed Be Your Name

Our God

We know that it’s much easier to focus on the LORD during worship when you’re not also concerned about forgetting the words or what you sound like.  Practice, practice.  It’s not a performance for people, but we ARE leading them into worship – and we don’t take that lightly!  I pray that these words become close to your heart – that they become the cries of your soul – that they become prayers from your heart straight to the heart of Jesus.  Come ready to worship with us on April 3!

So much going on at Girls Night and The Uprising this year!

Mark your calendars and invite your friends!

Wednesday, March 2:  Girls Night goes out!  We’re joining the guys this Wednesday and attending the D-Now kick-off rally/worship concert.  We leave at SIX (not 6:30 like usual), so don’t miss out!  Bring yo’ friends!

Friday, March 4-Sunday, March 6:  D-Now Weekend (The Way)!  We have two fabulously fun guests coming from Tennessee to lead the sessions this year, along with our stellar youth workers, Justin and Christina.   We’ll be going on a late-night GPS scavenger hunt, doing a service project, having an indoor pool party, attending a worship concert, and having a blast in our host homes.  See you there!

Sunday, April 3: Youth Sunday!  On this Sunday morning, our teenagers will be teaching all the Sunday School classes, leading the worship, and helping with the message!  We’re working hard on our songs and other surprises on Sunday evenings at 5 (and on some Girls Nights, too), so come be a part!

All the Wednesdays:  We have moved Girls Night from every other Thursday to every single Wednesday night @6:30.  Yay!  The guys meet in the Youth Room and the girls still meet at Kate’s house.  We still have food every week.  We still have music and games and fun lessons.  In fact, we’ve started a new series called “Do Hard Things.”  We just got our books and we’ll be discussing our chapters for the first time next Wednesday (March 9th).  Mind-blowing, culture-changing, life-altering stuff.  Bring your friends and join the rebelution!

And things to be looking for:

  • A post about our “Do Hard Things” series.
  • A post with videos of all our songs for Youth Sunday.
  • A post about our Sports Camp mission trip to Georgia this summer.  (And what you can do to go for FREE!)
  • And of course, recaps, photos, lessons, and verses from our Girls Nights as they happen.

Long live Girls Night!
