2014 Theme: I AM
Almighty, Lamb of God, Redeemer, Savior, Deliverer, Light, Shepherd - I AM.
Do you know where in Scripture Jesus claims to be God? Do you know how important the virgin birth is to the story of salvation? Did Jesus really die and rise again after three days? Who was, and is, the One called Jesus? This year we are going to deeply explore who Jesus is, was, and will be to come. We will do more than quickly glance at the often read parables and quotable sayings from Scripture. Instead, we will delve into the very foundation of the faith and learn what Jesus says about Himself - the I AM. Knowing who Jesus truly is will be the lens through which we base our view of the world. This is not about behavior modification, rather it is about the truth of scripture transforming our mind and heart.
We always challenge students to start a relationship with Jesus Christ if they do not have one. The challenge for students that already follow Christ will be to consider what it means to live for Christ, or, put another way, be the church rather than just attending church. When we present the gospel we present the facts of Truth and trust students to make a decision because we believe that God’s Word will not return void to Him. We also work to create opportunities for you and your youth team to minister to your students. Should you be short on adult volunteers to pray with your students the AreaOne staff will be available to support you.
