Challenge List! 4/7/2011

CHALLENGE LIST FOR THIS WEEK!

Keep memorizing our 5 verses! Proverbs 11:221 Timothy 4:12, Romans 12:2, 2 Timothy 1:7 AND the new one from this week is 2 Timothy 2:22.

“Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”

This verse sums it up perfectly!  Rebelling against low expectations (flee the evil desires of youth), do hard things (pursue righteousness, etc.), and the power of collaboration (along with those…).

Attend our collaboration yard sale planning session o’ fun.

Read the yard sale post (here) and the GFA post (here).  Brainstorm ways that you can help with this project!

Read this AWESOME blog post about a girl who did a hard thing!  She was talented in a lot of areas, but CHOSE to push herself in an area that didn’t come naturally to her – and it totally paid off!  (read it here.)

Read chapter 8 of Do Hard Things – and catch up if you’re behind!  Journal (make notes of) the things you find interesting or meaningful.  Remember to bring your book and notes next week.

Practice our 4 Youth Sunday songs.  (Find them here.)

Pray for Youth Sunday.

That God would teach us, reveal Himself to us, and prepare our hearts for leading worship.
That the Holy Spirit would draw many, many, many people to attend!
That we would be faithful in inviting, preparing, and praying.
That God would bless the service, and use it to draw many people into a closer relationship with Himself.
That God would use it to strengthen relationships between you and other church members.

Pray for your own spiritual growth.

That God would reveal Himself to you.
That He would help you understand the Bible.
That He would guide you through your day.
That He would show you how much He loves you in real, every-day ways.
That He would give you a great Christian friend to encourage you and challenge you.
That He would give you strength and courage to do the right things.
That He would give you new desires – to do great things for His glory.

Start writing down a running list of hard things you can do/want to do, if you haven’t already.

Watch this (very cool) video – just to remind yourself of what God can do with your life RIGHT NOW!
