LIGHTHOUSE October 2017 Wednesday Night Teaching Series – HEALTH

Dear Lighthouse Parents-

We are all probably aware of the many dangers and challenges that students face in our culture today.  From technology and social media to bullying, there are many tough topics that students face on a regular basis.  Unfortunately, many of these topics go unaddressed by the church too often.

On Wednesday October 4th we will start (or have started depending on when you get this) a series we’re calling HEALTH.  This is a 6 week teaching series that will go through October and November.  The goal is to address just a few of the many challenging topics in our culture right now.  The five topics that we will cover are as follows:

  • Sex
  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Bullying
  • Technology and Social Media
  • Suicide and Depression

The first week of the teaching will be on Wednesday October 4th and will be taught by me, Ian.  It is designed to be an introduction in which we will look at The Woman Caught in Adultery from John 8.  The challenge is threefold- Accept that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ, Realize that we have the power to choose, and Respect what God has made.  We will cover those three points each week throughout the series.  The other five weeks will hopefully be taught by other speakers.  We are currently still looking for speakers to cover Bullying and Drugs/Alcohol.

We realize that these topics have the power to stir up many feelings in the hearts and minds of our students.  If you have any questions or concerns about this series, please contact me directly.
