Last week we marched forward in our Survivor Series as we addressed “Outshine” from Philippians 2.12-13 and discussed the importance of taking personal responsibility in working out our salvation by dependinig upon the power of God at work within us to do so.
Afterwards, we played an exciting game of Strobelight Dodgeball. Major kudos to Jeremiah, Christian, Justin, and Ethan for setting everything up. If I forgot anyone, please forgive me.
For those of you that have been participating in the Survivor Challenge, here is an update on the point standings of each team.
Last week, the Independents came in first with a total of 60 points.
In second place the Flaming Flamingos came out strong with 55 points.
Tied for fourth place is team Azul and The Indecisives with 41.
Here are the cumulative team leaders after two weeks of competition:
Independents with 91.5
Azul with 81
Flaming Flamingos with 77
Indecisives with 57
What I am most encouraged about is that we had 4 first time visitors last week and 7 overall. Way to go gang! May we see many more not only visit, but many come to Jesus Christ during this time and commit their lives to Him, His body, and to serving Him.
For those of you that are participating, how are you enjoying the teams and challenges? Is there anything in particular that you would like to see?
Tomorrow night’s challenge will have some physically challenging elements, but will require team work and some mental exertion. Be prepared to think it through to victory!
Lord willing see you tomorrow night.
