Super excited about summer camp this year – CIY (Christ in Youth) is running our summer camp this year using speakers on video and lessons they’ve been creating this past year. And while we’ll get to experience it this summer from them – they’ve also taken their lessons from the event and packaged them into a new resource from Simply Youth Ministry called Anything But Ordinary: When Heaven and Earth Collide. Here’s a clip from the product description on the site:
Few teenagers dream of being ordinary. They seek to be significant, remarkable, memorable. They seek to lead lives that matter. Fortunately, Jesus set the standard in being anything but ordinary.
In this five-week series, veteran youth workers Brad Tate and Chase Allcott will engage your students in thought-provoking conversations about several unforgettable moments from the life of Jesus—moments that demonstrated how lives changed every time heaven and earth collided.
When do heaven and earth collide in the lives of your teenagers? When Jesus becomes real in their lives and in this world. When they become followers of Jesus, not just fans of Jesus. When they obey Jesus’ words about community and surround themselves with other people building God’s kingdom. When they fully allow God to define their lives and their hearts. When they minister and serve now, instead of waiting until they’re older.
