Hey TD!

For some of you participating in V4V, the social media fast will be harder than not talking for 30 hours!  But it will be worth it, as you use the time to reflect and engage with God through your Pause devotionals that are inside your V4V packet.

The pause from social media will begin at 10 p.m. on Sunday and last through Saturday night at 6 p.m.  That’s when we’ll also begin speaking again, after going voiceless for 30 hours, beginning at noon on Friday, 3/6.

Beginning Monday, you and your fellow V4V participants in your small group will read each day’s devotional and then briefly reflect and discuss it each day via old fashioned email or google hangouts 🙂

Let your small group leader know if you have any questions!

TD Fri. – “Enjoying Being Children of God” Bible Study & Final V4V Prep

Big Sticker V4V

Hey TD!

This Friday, we’ll be enjoying studying Romans 8:5-17 together and exploring what it really means to BE children of God and to LIVE like children of God!

We’ll also do our final V4V prepping before we meet for the actual V4V event itself on March 6, including giving out the duct tape you’ll need for V4V.

Please prep and read through the passage before coming to TD, jotting down notes, thoughts, and questions you have:

Romans 8:5-17 New International Version (NIV)

Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life[a] because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of[b] his Spirit who lives in you.

12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.[c] And by him we cry, “Abba,[d] Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

TD Fri. – V4V Ministry Groups Night!

Big Sticker V4V

Hey TD!

We’ll need you at TD this Friday as we prepare for TD to be involved in sharing V4V with the English congregation at this Sunday’s service!  Like at Christmas time, we’ll be in our ministry groups preparing for Sunday.  And like at Christmas time, we’ll ENJOY ourselves and have a good time! We’ll also do some more V4V training and prepping.

If you weren’t able to be at TD last Friday for the primary V4V Vision Casting and Training, just let your small group leader know and they’ll give you the password to the training.  Once you complete it, we’ll get a V4V kit to you and you’ll be on your way!

Like the TD groups in the past, let’s kill this, TD, and let’s do our part to help bring children home!

Until every child has a home …
