Summer Breakaway Study

Starting Wednesday, June 4th at 7:00pm, we will meet at the Greene's house for a 7 week in depth study.  We will study the book "Truth Matters", which is an easy to read yet loaded with meat and substance, this book is a level-headed reaction to those who equate Christian faith with “blind faith,” even those whose subtle or stated goal is to separate students from their religious traditions. Readers will discover the kind of historical information and thinking skills that build a sturdy backbone of confidence in high schoolers and young adults, making them able to defend by “reasoned faith” what the Bible claims as truth.


Weekly Opportunities

Sunday Mornings  We attend the 9 am service, and we believe that corporate worship is key for believers in Jesus Christ.  This is where we gather to worship God for all that He has done for us.  It is also where we heard God's word preached by our pastor, Mark Anderson.  Gathering for worship allows us to give back to God, and also allows us to receive the nourishment of God's word through preaching/teaching.  We then gather for LifeGroup in the youth room at 10:30.  This is where we join together as a smaller community of believers and we do life together in authentic relationships.  It is here that we have some fun, we pray and encourage one another, and where we grow in our faith through challenging Bible study.  Hebrews 10:24-25 applies here: "And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.'

Breakaway  Why the name "Breakaway"?  Good question.  We want students to be able to "breakaway" from campus, from studying, from the busyness of being a student, and come together for fellowship around a great meal...then experience a time of worship and Bible study.  This is a great opportunity to grow as a community and to be recharged in your faith. 

Connect Events  There will be many opportunities for students to connect with other students of the Exalt ministry, other students on campus, and members of Lynwood. 

Focus  This will take place at various times throughout the semester and will take place during Breakaway.  We will fast during the day, look forward to gathering together for a meal that evening, and then spend time in worship and prayer.  Our prayer is that this will spark a time or spiritual renewal and focus on those that need the gospel.  We want this time to expand our focus to things such as human trafficking, mission opportunities, and more!

Service  We believe that serving others is vital to the life of the believer.  Jesus told us to love others as ourselves.  This semester we will work with the International Crisis Aid and Feed My Starving Children to name a few.
