I've been in ministry now for almost 8 years and I have to be honest that I have been scared to ever broach the subject of end times... until now.
Almost four weeks ago we started our series "The End" with a goal of teaching students what the Bible says about the end times. Students are being bombarded, on all sides, with what society thinks will happen at the end. We have movies like; "I am Legand", "2012", and "The Road" that attempt to speak about what will happen at the end and what that may look like.
Week 1: "Be Prepared"
Main Text: Matthew 24:1-35
Week 2: "Are you Ready?"
Main Text: Matthew 25:1-13
Week 3: "The End of Everything"
Main Text: Revelation 20
Week 4: "After The End"
Main Text: Matthew 25:31-46
The sense I get is that this series has been helpful to students in their understanding of what the end will look like and what they can do in preparation for the end. You can check out our podcast for this series to hear some of the messages that we have done (Pastor Chase spoke week 2).
This is the video we have used to intro the series
