During week 2 of the series Beyond Sunday, Senior Pastor Pat Hood shared resources to help each person go “beyond sermons” so they can engage in richer times of hearing the voice of God in the Bible and putting it into action. Below are the website and book resources Pat mentioned for you to use in your own walk with Jesus:

Our middle school and high school students are a busy generation. It seems that more than ever teenagers are stretched in so many different directions—sports, school, family, work, etc. Too often so many of us journey through life on cruise control, not understanding the true meaning of why we exist. We ask questions like, “Are we here on this earth just to be busy?” “Is our purpose to live in a big house and make a ton of money?” ”Is the meaning of our lives to simply seek the approval of others and be chained to the world’s expectations?”
This past Wednesday, nearly 1,000 middle and high school students gathered together from both our Smyrna and Stewarts Creek campuses to hear how they could beunleashed from what holds them back. As students gathered for our outreach event, UNLEASHED, Christian rap artist Trip Lee was featured, and the Gospel was presented to an auditorium full of teenagers.
UNLEASHED was a true testament to our awesome volunteers living “Beyond Sunday.” We could not have pulled it off without the help of over 140 small group leaders and college students. These volunteers helped in so many ways: running registration, counseling students, cleaning up afterwards, etc. These volunteers are at the core of everything that we do in student ministry. We are so grateful for all of the wonderful people who came together to make this event a success!
Over 250 students came to LifePoint for the very first time. It was awesome to see students who regularly attend LifePoint on Wednesdays invest in their friends lives and invite them to hear how they can experience true life in Jesus. Over 150 students made decisions to take a step in their relationship with Jesus in salvation, baptism and/or recommitment.
We thank God for an incredible church that supports, prays, and points students to what a Christ-centered life is all about!
