Wednesday axis Wrap Up

Topic: Ask Us Anything

Questions: "Is smoking wrong" and "Does God have a view on illegal drugs and/or underage drinking?"

Student Involvement: We had kids on the worship team, tech team, cafe team, and the greeting team.

Attendance: We had about 1/4 of the kids that we normally have. We've noticed that every summer our attendance drops dramatically. This summer Wednesday was no different.

Fun Stuff: We started everything out by watching a funny clip from Land of the Lost, just to break the ice a bit.

Bible Verses: 1 Corinthians 6:12, 19 - 20, Titus 3:1

Lesson Review: We are doing a series in the summer called "Ask Us Anything." It's an opportunity for kids, well, to ask us anything. We are just that creative! :) We're giving kids an opportunty to submit questions through texting, Facebook, or our website. Our first two questions were really good. Even though there are not specifice verses in the Bible that deal with smoking or drugs, I tried to show our kids Biblical principles that were pretty clear in telling us to stay away from smoking and drugs. Plus ... anything with the word "illegal" in front of it ... pretty clear sign God wants us to NOT do it.

I showed a few different videos on the harmful effects of smoking and of drugs. Talked through the idea that we are not to be "mastered" by anything (1 Corinthians 6:12) and that our bodies are the "temple of the Holy Spirit." And, then we talked through the idea that drugs are just dumb and smoking is a dirty habit. I think the kids got the idea.

Afterwards, I prayed for all of our kids and desperately asked God to keep them free of drugs and of smoking. God, please do that for every kid involved in axis.
