Have you ever wondered why some life is more valuable or precious than other life? Why is that the death of a human has way more of an impact on us than a family pet? I believe its because this significance and value comes from our Creator. Let's keep digging into this question of discovering "who is Jesus?".
We have been created by God to trust, to depend. The question isn't whether or not we are trusting and depending in life. The real question is WHO are we trusting and depending on? Is it ourselves, or parents, friends, money and so much more? In this series we will be answering some questions as it pertains to trusting in Jesus and Jesus being the foundation of our faith.

"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me". The lie detecter determined, that was a lie!! In this service we will be discussing the importance of our words. The scriptures teaches us that our words are powerful and can shape the quality of our lives. Our words can hurt other people and can also be extremely hurtful to ourselves. There are a lot of factors that contribute to how we speak and why. We will talk about watching what goes in us because what goes in will come out at some point. Our music and what we watch are huge in influencing how we choose to speak.
In this part of the series of Fools Gold, Kyle Donauer will be discussing the importance of authority in our lives. We know especially in todays times that authority can be perceived as something despicable to some teenagers. We believe that the bible teaches us that maximum freedom is found under God's authority. It's when we embrace and submit to God's authority in our everyday lives, that we find TRUE freedom.
In this series we will be discussing the importance of having healthy friendships. Peer pressure is very real. It's pull can also be something extremely difficult to overcome. In this service Gabrielle Edwards will be talking about the significance of having healthy friendships, community, and the strong current of peer presure.
Exelerate is a great place for community to take place amongst teenagers. Tonight is a great opportunity for our teens to get to know other teens that they may not know. We have designed a night of fun a games for our teens to interact and really begin to get to know each other over the bridge of fun interaction. Sometimes the best way to build unity and break the ice is with some good old fashion fun!!
In this last part of the series we are discussing the importance of sexual purity. We believe that sex isn't just physical. There are a lot of factors that go into our sexuality. It's clear in scripture that God desires for us to save this part of our lives for best person for our life. Sex is a blessing but can be extremely distructive outside of the boundaries that God has given in marriage. We believe that in order for our teens to fulfill their God given purpose, they need to remain sexually pure. Sex impacts us for the good or bad at the deepest part of who we are.
In this part of the series we are discussing that importance that relationships play in helping us to hit the mark of a fulfilled purpose. Our friends are like gravity. They can easily pull us in either the right direction or the wrong direction. Tonight's purpose is to help our teens see the importance of choosing their friends wisely. We believe the bible teaches us that our friends really impact the direction and quality of our lives.
In this series we are discussing the uniqueness of our purposes in life. We all have a purpose that God has given us. The question is, how do we go about achieving and fulfilling that purpose? In this service we will talk about how our purpose is connected to our creator. If we can discover our creator then we can begin to discover the purpose for which He made us.
