November Family Devotions

Every month we will be sending out a postcard to all of the parents with the topic discussed at Pursuit along with activities and a devotion that we want to challenge you to sit down and go through with your student at some point in time this month. 

USE THESE QUESTIONS TO HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH YOUR CHILD THIS MONTH:

  1. When you look at all that happens in the world around you, why is it easy to assume that everything is random, chaotic or meaningless?
  2. If everything that happens is just random, what would that mean for the purpose of our lives?
  3. The Bible teaches us that all of history is the unfolding of God’s story, that there is a purpose and a plan to everything. We learned this month that the story of God can be told with four words: Creation, Fall, Redemption and Restoration. What are each of these parts of God’s story? 
  4. Read Luke 24:27. What did Jesus explain to his disciples in this verse? In what way is Jesus the thread that connects all of history?
  5. When you begin to understand God’s story, how does it help you understand your purpose in life?
  6. What are some examples of brokenness you see in the world during your week? What is one way you can help to restore something that is broken?

October Family Devotions

This month, our whole church is going through a series called Stepping Up. We are discovering how God uses us when we take steps of faith.

Pastor James is sharing with us the vision for the Journey over the next two year in these areas:
        1.    Creating excellent environments where people encounter God. 
        2.    Reaching people who are far from God, right where they are.
        3.    Offering help and hope to those hurting the most.

We want to give students the opportunity to play a huge part in this. On November 2, during Ignite and the Exchange, we will be taking up an offering called the Pursuit First Step. Our goal is for Pursuit students to give $1500! This would be enough to cover sound systems in some of the five churches God is leading us to build in Haiti. Find time this month to talk with your son or daughter about ideas or ways that they could give sacrificially in order to see God move in power. Remind them to bring their offering on November 2.
