If you are new to .Redeemed., I lead a middle school girls eGroup Thursday evenings with the girls is one of my favorite parts of the week. They are an amazing group of girls and they teach me as much as I teach them.
Icebreaker: What do we want to do this summer? Fun activities and Bible studies?
Discussion Highlights: This week, we discussed chapter thirteen of when God writes your love
story. This chapter is titled "Playing for Keeps".
- Ephesians 6:1-3
- How is your relationship with your parents? Do you feel comfortable talking to your parents about boys, dating and relationships?
- If you don't have a parent you can confide in, who do you have in your life to turn to for Christian counsel?
Closing: I closed the evening by challenging all of the girls to sit down with their parents to talk about their future husband. They all said that this will be awkward. I closed in prayer. I asked God to give them each the strength to talk to their parents about their future husbands.
During the Week: We will attend an eStudent Cook Out after the 11:15 Worship Experience at the Rock Hill campus of Elevation. We will sit down with our parents and ask them to begin praying for our future husband. We will be reading chapter fourteen.
Next Week: We
will discuss chapter fourteen during eGroup next week.
We had much smaller numbers this week. Several of the girls had commitments that they could not get out of. Smaller numbers are nice some times, though. The discussion went great!
Highlight: Hearing the girls talk about how they know that they are able to go to their parents, but still feel as if it is uncomfortable or awkward to talk about religion. (The highlight is the knowing part.) I love that they know that they can go to their parents to talk about religion and boys and relationships, or just anything!
