Our Youth Ministry class meets every Sunday in room #604 (upstairs and to the right). Snacks & sodas are available free of charge! Read on for more info about our current class. The call to faith in Christ is a call to action. It’s a call to a transformed life, a life that has a specific look to it. This life is called discipleship. And it’s the expected path of all who come to faith in Jesus. The call to saving faith is a simultaneous call to follow Jesus in a lifetime of devotion. There really isn’t any other option. The idea that we could know Jesus but live unchanged lives isn’t biblical. The picture of biblical faith is the picture of life daily lived in relationship with God. It’s a life of discipleship. Of “followership.” Our Student Ministry is in the midst of a year-long Bible study series called "The Life." We hope and pray these messages will help your students know exactly what the call to follow looks like. Key Features of "The Life" • 3 Student Devotionals Every Week • Parent Recap Pages with Discussion Questions • Focus on Jesus and Discipleship

Living with Purpose • January 19, 2020 • Bryan Fojtasek
Jesus sets us an example of humility (attitude) and service (action) that every disciple should follow. 1 Peter 4:10 (NLT) “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” 1. Jesus shows us the importance of humility. 2. Serving is a practical demonstration of God's love. 3. We have the ability and responsibility to share God's love through acts of service. Application: 1. Make We > Me 2. Practice Show and Tell 3. WestsideLife.org/Volunteer
Becoming More Like Jesus • January 12, 2020 • Bryan Fojtasek
Part two of our series "Living With Purpose." God loves you just the way you are, but he doesn't want you to stay that way. Instead, he wants you to grow into a better reflect of Jesus Christ. And through his power and promises, he's given us everything we need to live a godly life. Main passages: Matthew 23:25-26, Ephesians 4:22-24, 2 Peter 1:2-9.
Living in Community • January 5, 2020 • Bryan Fojtasek
God designed us to live in community with our fellow believers because a healthy Christian community lays the foundation for personal and spiritual growth, and it protects us from the Devil’s number one attack against Christians: isolation.
