Goal for the Life Night:
This night is about how human dignity has been restored by Christ. Our identity, holiness and purpose are found in the person of Christ. Once we know who we are in Christ, we can then begin to reveal the truth about Christ to the world through our humanity. This night will give the teens a chance to see themselves through the loving eyes of the Father. It will remind the teens who and what they are created for.
Life Night at a Glance:
Using the popularity of self-help books and shows as a starting point, this night shows the teens that the only real path to “self-discovery” comes through Christ. The night starts with a spoof of the Oprah Show and then leads into a powerful teaching. After the teaching, the teens will break into men and women’s groups. In these groups, the teens will have an opportunity to talk about the unique way they reveal God to the world. The night ends by giving the teens an opportunity to be prayed over by a Core member. The Core will pray that the teens will begin to see themselves as God sees them. After prayer, each teen will receive a mirror with a scripture verse written on it as a reminder of who they are in Christ and who they are called to reveal to the world.
