Some thoughts after our Senior High Retreat, Uncovered–Every Scar has a Story:Uncovered Poster

Dave Brandt is the most intentional guy I know. While I played for him at Messiah, there wasn’t a second of practice that wasn’t planned with a strategic purpose. We didn’t do things simply do things for the sake of doing them; there was a goal that we were working toward. And Dave got results. A lot of results. Perhaps one he didn’t consider would be how his players would end up replicating his kind of intentionality within their own spheres of influence long after their Messiah Soccer days. (more…)

Main Points:

  • Nothing in the world is ever as good as we want it to be—it always disappoints.
  • It is foolish to continue to put our hope in things that constantly disappoint.
  • When we’ve tasted and seen that Jesus is faithful to never disappoint, we freely share our stories so others can find their joy in Jesus.

Uncovered Battle Plan

Senior High Retreat Sessions 2013

Uncovered Battle Plan

Theme:

  • Uncovered—Every Scar has a Story

Main Points:

  • Every scar has a story.
  • Everyone’s story is important.
  • Jesus is the hero of every story.

General Idea:

  • All of us have a story of God’s work in our lives.  Whether or not we’ve chosen to embrace Jesus as our Lord and Savior, God is still working in our lives.  Often, we don’t see his hand until we believe the gospel and receive Jesus.  Our mission is to give uncover to God’s work in our lives.
  • Over four sessions, we will examine four Bible characters who uncover God’s hand in their lives.  We’ll also connect the Bible to the present by sharing the testimonies of several of our youth workers.  In all of these accounts, we’ll see that life is messy and there is no standard story.  These witness accounts of God’s hand in our lives will lead us to challenge our youth to tell their own stories no matter how messy or how unfinished they may be.
  • We don’t need to hide our scars, because they are the stories of how Jesus has healed us.
