Meh- Why Bother

Everything we do should have value

 

Have you ever found yourself doing something over and over, wondering “Why bother”? Often times we get so complacent with life we fail to remember the purpose behind why we do what we do. During this series, Takeover is going to look at the core values of what we do. We want to make sure that everything we do has a purpose and reason behind it. Without a goal in mind, we are like an octopus on roller skates. There’s a lot of movement, but not a lot of moving forward!

Week 1 Message- Strong Relationships

Date- February 12th, 2017

Key Verse(s)-  Phil 2:3-4, Heb. 10:23-24, Gen 1:1-27

The One Thing- Help students establish strong relationships

Speaker- Sr HS- Tommy Clark/Jr HS- Harold Wells

Whether it’s the friends you chose or the family you didn’t, relationships play a crucial role in your life. So how do we make sure that those around us are going to guide me in the right way? How can I make sure that I am helping those I am in relationships with grow with God? Your relationships will help decide your future, so it’s worth taking a look at them!

Week 2 Message- Purpose Leads to Action

Date- February 19th, 2017

Key Verse(s)-  Eph. 2:10, 1 Cor. 12:4-11

The One Thing- Help students to realize that God created them for a purpose and equip them to action.

Speaker-  Sr HS- Tommy Clark   /Jr HS- Steph Schleyer

Have you ever felt that there is no purpose to life? Or maybe just that there is no purpose to yours? One of the crazy things about God is that He has created all of us with a reason in mind. None of us are here by accident, and everybody has a plan. So how do I figure out what God’s plan is, and what do I do about it? (What you think about is what you care about, what you care about is what you chase)

Week 3 Message- Explore, Ask, Experience

Date- February 26th, 2017

Key Verse(s)- John 6:35-40, Matt. 6:7-12

The One Thing- Provide an environment where students are encouraged to explore, ask, and experience what it means to follow Jesus.

Speaker-  Tommy Clark

Think about it. The creator of the universe, the founder of all life, the one in charge of everything, has invited you to interact with Him! That’s a pretty crazy idea. But how often do we take Him up on the offer? Nobody knows everything about God or even Christianity. It’s important for us to continue to investigate who He is by exploring our faith and asking questions. God is meant to be interacted with and experienced. Not blindly followed or ignored.

Week 4 Message- Safe, Accepted, and Loved

Date- March 5th, 2017

Key Verse(s)-  1 Cor. 9:19-23

The One Thing- Provide a fun environment where all students feels safe, accepted and loved.

Speaker-  Sr HS- Brandon Pendleton  /Jr HS- Harold Wells 

Everybody wants and needs to belong somewhere. Unfortunately, churches are notorious for being judgmental and uninviting. At Takeover and in our lives, we should be striving to break that image. We want to be a place where anybody can come and experience Jesus, along with the love that He offers through His followers. It is up to US to create that environment!

Week 5 Message- Spread the Love

Date- March 12th, 2017

Key Verse(s)- Matt. 28:19-20

The One Thing- Equip our students to grow in their faith and learn to share it.

Speaker-  Sr HS-  Tommy Clark /Jr HS- Harold Wells

Every week when we come to church, we expect to be encouraged, loved, and learn something new. We want to continue to grow in our lives, and experience God more. But is that it? Is church really all about what I can get out of it? Our goal at Takeover is not just to help you grow in your faith (though we certainly want you to!), but to be able to take that growth and spread it to those in your life!
