Since we missed class tonight, due to our mid-week Bible study being cancelled, we have decided to post the practice test here.
The test can be printed by simply clicking the link below. Students, please study Esther, chapter 5, and complete the practice test. We will, Lord willing, discuss what we’ve studied next Wednesday.
Esther, Chapter 5 – Practice Test #1
Anyone wishing to participate in Bible Bowl with us (grades K-12) should see Kyle or Marissa. This is new to Gilroy, but we look forward to participating in the February event.
Practice Test #2: Esther, Chapters 6 & 7
We have great reason to rejoice! One of our teens Savannah was immersed for the remission of her sins Sunday morning. What a great way to begin the week! We are so proud of her and all our teens for their commitment and dedication to God. Now that’s what you call church growth!
We have a devotional coming up this Saturday, the 21st, hosted by myself and Marissa. This will begin at 5pm. We’ll provide the food and activities. (If you haven’t already, see us for information on how to get in the gate).
This devotional is the last event we have planned for the Winter Quarter. As the spring approaches we are still trying to finalize our calendar. At the moment, however, we need volunteers to host our devotionals. There is still a sign-up list in the foyer if you are interested. We would very much appreciate it.
We are also currently planning for our classes, teachers and materials. More information on that will follow at a later date.
We thank you for your love, support and prayers as we strive to teach our young people to serve our Lord to the best of their ability (Romans 12:1-2). We thank you for all you do.
I have posted the new lists of classes and events for the Winter Quarter. Feel free to check them out.
WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO…
In the nearest future, our YOUTH DEVOTIONAL, hosted by the Maxwell’s, will be this coming Sunday evening, December 14th. It will take place following our Sunday evening services. As part of this, we will have a HOLIDAY PARTY & GIFT CARD SWAP. Please, be planning to attend.
We have also set a goal to have all donations to the CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL AT VANDERBILT turned in by December 14th. Marissa and myself plan to take them to the hospital sometime later that week. A list of the items desired can be found by clicking HERE.
A couple of events hosted by area congregations will also be coming up soon. A YOUTH DAY will be hosted by the Leanna Church of Christ in Murfreesboro on January 3rd. Also, the annual YOUNG MEN”S SEMINAR will be hosted by the East Main Church of Christ in Murfreesboro on February 7th. (We attended the Young Men’s Seminar last year.)
We thank you for your involvement and appreciate your prayers for our young people. As we look to the beginning of next year, keep looking for more good things to come.
We are reaching a time of year when it is difficult to keep our teens moving and involved in the church. Many have activities seem to get in the way of services, classes and events, but our hope is that you will encourage them to be as involved and active as possible. We, as a congregation, work to provide those opportunities, but without your encouragement and participation, it is difficult to bring these opportunities to life.
COMING UP! We have a YOUTH DEVOTIONAL scheduled for NOVEMBER 8TH (Note: Rescheduled from Saturday, the 15th, due to conflict). This month, Willie and Brenda Hughes have volunteered to host. We are very appreciative of their kindness in doing so.
Also, please remember our BIBLE CLASSES! We have great periods of study offered on SUNDAY MORNING and WEDNESDAY EVENING. Our class opportunities are much better with good attendance and, please, encourage your teens to bring a friend. As I’ve told them before, the only way our youth group can grow is by their invitation. Also, please encourage them to study their lessons before class.
As always, we want to do all we can to encourage our teens spiritually, but we can’t do it alone. Remember that what we do now could have a great impact on their eternity.
