The CBSM Update: Weekly News and Announcements

CBSM students, parents, and small group leaders:

Report on Last Wednesday: Two Wednesdays ago now we had one of our biggest Wednesday nights ever! God used our students to bring in 166 total teens to rock it out for our CBSM Iron Bowl. Alabama did win for the first time in CBSM Iron Bowl history. We also finished up the Proverbs with taking a look at several of the NAMES God calls out in Scripture to deal with. Awesome night!

This Wednesday night, we’re going to take a one-stop look at the entire book of Ecclesiastes in a sermon called “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction.” I already can’t wait to see how God is going to use our students to reach many of their friends to bring in, and I can’t wait to watch how God is going to change the lives of many students who are searching for satisfaction in other places than Jesus Christ.

NETMA is attached for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to check out the Reading Plan for this week.

Here’s what you need to know for this week…

STORYLINE Wednesday Worship (6:00 – 8:00pm)
This Wednesday, we’re starting a new series (and finishing it…one sermon series) in the book of Ecclesiastes. We’re calling it “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction.”

FRAMEWORK Sunday School (9:15 – 10:15am)
This Sunday, we will all meet in the student building at 9:15am for announcements and then we’ll all go to our designated small group rooms for fun, fellowship, and discussion on what God has done in our lives the past week through the daily reading of His Word and from the teaching on Wednesday night.

STUDENT MINISTRY TEAMS (SMTs) Sunday Evening (6:30 – 7:30pm)
This Sunday night, we will meet for SMT’s. Make sure to check with your SMT Leader about your team’s meeting place and time. We encourage all of our students to be on an SMT to serve Jesus in His church…as we’re created to do!

Wednesday, December 8th: CBSM Christmas Worship Service. This is our only worship service of the year completely geared-up to be “Christmas Style” with Christmas videos, games, worship songs, and a Christmas challenge from God’s Word. I’m even thinking about telling everyone to wear the ugliest Christmas sweater they can find!

Wednesday, December 15th: CBSM Christmas Partay. We’ll meet up at the CBSM student building by 6:30pm to go over some Christmas carols, and then we’ll hit up all the neighborhoods and houses surrounding our church for a local-mission trip by canvassing the near-by community with Christmas carols all about Christ! Then we’ll meet back up in the FLC (Gym) for some good-ole Christmas grub, and a Christmas game where you’ll go home with a Christmas gift. All your friends are invited. Don’t miss it!

January 14-17: CBSM SKI TRIP 2011. Reserve this date on your calendar as we’ll be going to SUGAR MOUNTAIN in Boone, North Carolina to ski it up! Registration is now closed. If you’re going…your remaining balance of $250 is due BY Wednesday, December 8. And our mandatory Ski Trip meeting for everyone going is Sunday, December 5. The full $350 cost includes two days of skiing, basic/necessary rentals, lift tickets, transportation, all meals once in NC, and your official CBSM Ski Trip tshirt.
