Appreciation Tue

APPRECIATION TUESDAYS at Scope – on Facebook!

Are you even aware of all the ways the Lord blesses you each day? The magnificent sunrise, a warm bed on a cold day, pipes that did not freeze in the cold so you can have a hot shower and hotter coffee. The gift of a toad joyfully presented by a toddler to his mom. A kind stranger stopping to change a tire on a lonely dark road. Sometimes we become so focused on all that is wrong in our life, our relationships and the world that it soon becomes all we experience. Maybe its time for a reset!

Join us on Facebook for Appreciation Tuesdays at Scope by posting pictures or notes expressing your appreciation for something you experienced in your day. You may just inspire someone else to change the lens from which they view life, but at the very least, your heart will grow, you will glorify God, and your vision of life will have been expanded.

Teens Transformed

Come to the Teens Transformed experience!  This small group meets Tuesday evenings in the spring and fall semesters.  Time and again, if mom made them come or they chose to on their own, we have seen kids come in quiet, shy and unsure….yet by the end of the experience leave confident, enthusiastic and changed – because they’ve learned who they are in Christ!  And they’ve made a few friends along the way.

Teens Transformed is the ultimate teen workbook! It is the culmination of over 22 years of student ministry.  With eight sleek, insightful and well illustrated lessons on Biblical principles, this workbook is basic and practical in its presentation of truth and challenging in its personal application.

Teens Transformed is uniquely designed to:

  • Paint vivid pictures of God’s love!
  • Illuminate practical truth
  • Burst with thirst-quenching Scriptures
  • Amaze you with insightful quotes from Mark Twain to Kermit the Frog

Teens Transformed teaches:

The Foundation:

  • The Sufficiency of Scripture
  • The Nature of Man

The Trinity:

  • New Identity in Christ
  • Dancing with Holy Spirit
  • God-Thoughts

The Practical Application of Radical Truth:

  • Belief Systems
