Summer Sermon Worksheet Challenge



June 27th: The Virtual Adventure:

As we begin a new sermon series entitled “Encounters with Jesus” this adventure is inspired by Paul’s dramatic encounter with the risen Jesus on the road to Damascus. The Virtual Adventure travels a route from Damascus to Jerusalem, where Paul’s ministry really began.

Walk, jog, run, or bike the 292.8 km route. As you travel, submit your distances to the Virtual Adventure page on the church website. Work on your own, or share the distance by working with a team. There are six virtual check points along the way where you will learn a little about the cities along the route, and how some of them are connected to scripture.

If you complete the challenge, you will win a medal.

May 24th and 31st Sermon Worksheet Challenge:

The next two sermons are all about worship. Download the worksheet and follow along with the sermon video or podcast to answer the questions. 

This is a two part challenge. If you can get both worksheets filled out well, and sent to me, then there will be prizes.

Scavenger Hunt! (Closed)

(Easter Weekend):

 Take a break from journaling through 1 Samuel. Take time this weekend to listen or to watch an Easter sermon. Your challenge over this Easter weekend is to write a letter to your future self. Address it to yourself five years from now. This letter is for you only. Nobody else will read it. Some things to consider:

1)      Keep it casual and informal

2)      Describe how things have been going for you and your family over these last few weeks

3)      How have you been feeling? What has been stressing you out? What have you been praying for?

4)      What positives are you experiencing right now?

5)      How has celebrating Easter this year been different from previous years?

6)      Explain to your future self what Easter means to you today.

7)      What do you hope the future brings for you?

8)      What is one big thing that present day you really wants future you to know or remember?


You can put these someplace safe, and that you'll remember. Or, when things are back to normal I can lock them away in my future letter drawer at the office.

Happy Easter.

April 1st: Service Project
 

This week your goal is a service project. Find a way to serve people while maintaining physical distancing.

 

Here are a couple of suggestions:

 

A) If you're feeling crafty, put together a homemade Easter card and mail it out to somebody.


B) Pick up some extra chores around the house.

 

C) My favorite, make dessert for your household. Below are instructions on how to make my 3-step brownies, and if you like spending time in the kitchen, you can turn those brownies into a dessert burger.

 

Josh's 3-Step Brownies:

 

Step One:

In a bowl combine:

1 1/4 cup Nutella

2 Eggs

1/2 cup flour

Stir together until smooth.

 

Step Two:

Lightly grease a baking ban, and pour the mixture in evenly.

 

Step Three:

Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes.

 

Now to turn these into cupcake burgers, simply whip up a batch of cupcakes, from scratch or from a box. Add some food coloring to frosting and there you have it. If you want to take it an extra step further, add some chocolate covered bacon on the side. Place bacon on a cookie with parchment paper into a cold oven. Then turn the oven on to 400 degrees. The bacon should take about ten minutes, but keep an eye on it. Melt any kind of chocolate. To do this, bring a pot of water to a boil. Place your chocolate in a glass dish, and place it over the boiling water, stir your chocolate until it's melted and smooth. 

(I actually made these! If I can do it, you can do it.)
                    


March 25th: Design Competition (Still Open):

You all know our time in the kitchen produces some-what edible food, and hilarious catch phrases.

Pasta-Lips and Chicken Chips.

Design two separate logos or art work that represent Pasta Lips and Chicken Chips. E-mail it to me at Joshua@byroncommunitychurch.com

Our panel of experts will select the best ones and they will be featured on a youth group t-shirt!

Scripture Journaling:

During our time away, you can still be taking time to read through, and journal scripture. If you have a journal at home, use it. If not, then just use some paper.

A reminder of our journaling steps:

1) Pray. Ask for focus, and understanding.

2) Read through the scripture and reflect on what it is communicating.

3) What key words, ideas, or themes jump out to you? What questions does the scripture make you ask?

4) Visualize the words and themes that stand out to you, and draw a sketch that represents it, or represents an important part of the scripture.

At B.C.C. Youth (or Legacy Youth) we do fun stuff and try to be like Jesus. We try to serve others by doing things such as: giving out cold water bottles on a hot day, and packing winter blessing bags. We have lots of fun too with activities like: laser tag, pizza making, and escape rooms. If you are a student, in grade 7-12, who wants to have some fun, make new friends, and has questions about God and the Bible then this is the place for you!


Typical nights run from 7-9:00pm Wednesday nights at the church.
