Day 4 - ChangedToday’s Theme: Kingdom Workers are changed.
Through Jesus, we are loved, rescued, and united, and the result of all of those things coming together is lives that are changed.

Today we will think through how to apply being loved, rescued, and united in our lives so that we are changed people. (Eph. 4:17-32)

Day 2 - Rescued

Today’s Theme: Kingdom Workers are rescued.

We start our journey today by revisiting what we learned yesterday: Kingdom Workers are loved. Love and rescue are linked together. God’s love for his people isn’t passive, it takes action. Today we examine Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 1 and apply it to our own lives, as well as examine our own need of rescue. (Eph. 1:15-23)

Schedule:

  • Morning Session
  • Encounter (Individual Time Alone with God)
  • Small Group Time
  • Electives/Free Time

Prayer Ideas:

  • Continued prayer for our team as we connect
  • Prayer for students to get in the right electives that will encourage them in their faith growth.
  • Events of the day would help show us areas of our life where we need God’s rescue.
