Weekend Teaching Series: You Own the Weekend: Tesoro HS (series finale, week 5 of 5)
Sermon in a Sentence: God gives us faith, faith that can move mountains.
Service Length: 67 minutes
Understandable Message: The message this week was taught by a couple of students and a couple more shared their stories. The message focused on having faith in God, and how powerful that faith is, in that it can move mountains. Students taught the story of Peter/Jesus walking on the water to teach this biblical truth. Fun twist – when I went to our adult services this weekend it was fun to hear Pastor Rick teaching on the same passage. Awesome!
Volunteer/Student Involvement: This ENTIRE weekend service (and the whole series, really) was put on by students from start to end. Students made the videos, did the speaking, greeted at the doors, decorated the room, played in the band, picked the songs and hosted the weekend. An adult was assigned to mentor and coach the student leaders in charge of each weekend.
Element of Fun/Positive Environment: The students played a silly video they created at their school, as well as brought in several school-specific groups (jazz band, glee club, etc) – the drum-line was my favorite! We played the new camp promo video and pushed for students to sing up online for camp. We Are Tesoro still reigns as the best YOTW video of all time.
Music Playlist: Your Name High, One Pure and Holy Passion, The Stand, Solution
Favorite Moment: This week I just reflected on an amazing 5-weeks where out students have done everything. It was a powerful experience – and our highest attendance in HSM history. An epic series, so proud of our students. Wow.
