Weekend Teaching Series: I Am __________ (week 3 of 3)
Sermon in a Sentence: Bullying is not just wrong it’s evil, and we are commanded as believers to standup for those who can’t do it on their own.
Service Length: 75 minutes
Understandable Message: This weekend we covered Bullying. We had a guest speaker named Paul Coughlin. He is the founder of The Protectors an organization that helps family’s, schools and churchs deal with the issue of bullying. He gave our students a biblical perspective on bullying, he really educated our students on what bullying is and what it is not. Finally, he gave practical ways students could standup to bullying. One of the ways he stressed was for our students to partner up with a friend at school and standup for each other. Also, if they saw someone else being bullied that they would standup for that person together. He also challenged students who wanted to do more to signup for more info on how to do more in their schools. We had 60 plus students signup. Very proud of our students for taking a stance against bullying.
Element of Fun/Positive Environment: We did a Taylor Swift cover as an opener “Mean”. We played a couple of fun new videos – one was the 3rd episode of HSM’s Sports Minute featuring local school sports updates with a crazy twist and the other was an announcement video for our Halloween outreach event.
Music Playlist: Hosannah, Never Let Go, Our God
Favorite Moment: The song choices after the message this weekend were absolutely perfect. I really felt like the message continued right into the 3 songs – super powerful ending to the message!
