It’s Palm Sunday! That means it’s one week before Easter! But why do we celebrate this, what are the palm leaf crosses all about and why did people celebrate Jesus here when he would shortly be killed by them and what does it mean to be King of the Jews? Basically it’s a LOT. So come along and join us for the last Upper Room of the term as we think more about and start the journey of Easter week together by reading Luke 19:28-40 together.

And that’s it for this week as always if you have any questions let me know and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Starts: 19:00
Ends: 20:45
Location: My House (Message me for details)

What’s Happening?
You know how you read some bits of the bible and you think you to yourself, if they were to make a movie about this bit they would need a big special effects budget. Yeah the transfiguration is one of those moments! It’s also a strange moment to us when we read it that seems quite different from other parts of Mark’s gospel so come along to YA this week to find out more about it. Why it is so important and what this strange and different event means for us here and now today. (If you are doing the read a chapter a week this challenge week this week is chapter 9 and in the session will be reading Mark 9:2-13)

Upper Room: Trusting God when things are against us – 31/03/19

Starts: 10:00
Ends: 11:30
Location: Sheet Church (Message me for details)

What’s Happening?
It’s easy to trust God when things are going well right? When everything is happening the way we want it too of course God is on our side how could he not be? But everything is going wrong, when we don’t know what’s going on is God on our side then? That’s what we are thinking about as we look this week at one of the songs that David probably wrote about this very thing in Psalm 56. Often our worship on prayers pretends everything is fine what happens when we stop that and just be honest with God come along to Upper Room to join us and find out.

And that’s it for this week as always if you have any questions let me know and I look forward to seeing you soon.

God Bless

What’s Happening?
What does it mean to give what you have? We have lot of songs about giving our all but what would that look like? Is there an unhealthy way of doing it what would that look like?

Exam Week Sanity Help! – Day 5

“In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.” Psalm 4:8

Hi Everyone

Today is the last day of our Exam Week Sanity Help messages (for now if this has been helpful let me know and we can look at doing it again.) Today’s help is a meditation that helps you reflect on the past day/week and find the good in it (even if it feels like there wasn’t any at first.) Again this one is more prayer based but if you are not comfortable about that just focus on the questions being asked and let them help you find the good in the week that’s gone. You can find it here:

https://soundcloud.com/pray-as-you-go/examen-for-young-people

As always please remember that you are loved, we are praying for you and if you want any more support at all please do get in touch.

Remember:

God Bless

David Loveless

PS. This may be the last one for now but you can find previous days of Exam Week Sanity Helper here – http://www.sheet.church/cyp/youth/youthreflections/
