Devos &

Discussions

For Gospel and For Good. 

The life of the Christian is one of devotion - giving our love, our time, our activity over to Christ for His glory and our good. These devotions are here to help our students orient themselves toward God throughout their weeks. Sent out every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, these brief writings adapted from "31 Verses Every Teenager Should Know" come with a few short questions to aid in the application of truth. On Sundays, we send out a brief discussion guide (3 - 5 questions) to help families debrief, discuss and digest the sermon.

So take a moment, take a breath - recognize that you are in the presence of God. Pray that the Spirit would aid you in the application of His Word in your life and remember that you're joining with a bunch of other Yoggers reading these same devos and discussion guides!
