The Dangers of Forgetting God

All week we have been focused on the process of remembering God. We have intentionally attempted to turn down the noise of distractions and pay close attention to what the Lord wants to teach us through his Word and through others around us. We have been encouraged to remember his character and his deeds!

Last night, CVCYouth LifeGroup leader Mike Hopkins used the story of Aaron to show us the danger of forgetting God.

Aaron had been chosen by God along with Moses to be God's mouthpiece. He had seen incredible things including the delivery of the Israelites from Egypt, the parting of the Red Sea, and the provision of God in the wilderness. However, when things get tough, Aaron blows it - he gets involved with building an idol.

His three main points were:

1. Aaron was chosen by God.
2. Aaron saw God do amazing things.
3. Aaron's forgetfulness led to idolatry.

Papa Hop (as Mike Hopkins is affectionately known) closed by asking students to consider what the ramifications might be of their forgetting God. He asked them to take some time to do business with God
Late Night!!
By this point in the week, we try to give the middle school students a bit of a break. So, they get the night off to relax and get to bed (its really for their leaders).

The high school students enjoyed a night of dancing with our good friend Barry - who leads community building dancing exercises. It might sound a little corny, but the kids have an absolute blast!!

Morning Worship
We closed out our morning sessions with graduates Chris Brisbin and Jacob Mohler teaching on the subject of boldness. They used the stories of Gideon and Stephen to show that in God's power ordinary people can be bold to accomplish all that God calls them to do.
