2017 Goals !

Standard

Hey y’all!

I’m so thankful for each one of you and I’m looking forward to this year of Bright Lights! Here is an overview of whats coming up:

These are the goals we came up for 2017, this is a very ambitious list but I’m excited to see how many of these we can accomplish this year!! 😀

-Go to a Nursing Home (at least once)

-Sponsor a Compassion International child (We have one & we’re setting up the details)

-Host a Family Banquet (For all the families of Bright Lights girls)

-Go to the Witnessing Camp at/near the Creation Museum in August

-Go out Witnessing Locally

-Community Outreach (Could be serving food, putting together gifts etc…)

-Go help out at a Rainbow Village Ministry Program

-Have a giant Sleepover (at the church?)

-Etiquette Tea Party

-Make New Song Books with more songs and some Spanish songs.

-Go on a Camping Trip/mini conference

****************

Also at the end of last year I asked for topics that you would be interested in learning and here is the list of Topics that were brought up. We might not be able to fit all of them in this year, but we’ll do our best. And like last year, there will be opportunities for those who would like to help teach the lessons to sign up for different topics. (These aren’t necessarily in the order of the meetings yet)

-How to Grow Closer to God

-Spiritual Gifts – Gods calling for our lives

-Self-Esteem (Viewing yourself through God’s Perspective)

-Dealing with Fear/Anxiety and  -The fear of the Lord (Possibly do these 2 together)

-Communication

-Witnessing (This one came up a lot, which thrills me 😀 So we’ll definitely be covering it)

-Developing a Gentle and Quiet Spirit

-Femininity (Could be combined with our Etiquette Tea Party)

-Friends

-Patience

-Healing from past hurt and how to deal with hard situations

-Creation

One more thing we decided to do last Bright Lights is each meeting a different girl is going to highlight a Attribute or Name of God. For example God is: Love, Light, Living Water, And He is called the: Lamb of God, Jehovah Jirah etc… I will assign who’s next at each meeting and they will need to prepare a verse or 2 to share, explain what it means, and they can even suggest a song for us to sing or bring a picture.

Here you can see the dates for the current upcoming meetings, thank you to those who have already signed up to bring snacks! Y’all are amazing!

Hope to see you tonight!! 6:00-8:45

So proud of these girls who had the idea to go around and give out all the extra cards we made to the residents who were still in their rooms. We had such a special time talking to people individually, singing for them and praying for a couple of them. 🙂

Practice makes progress

Love this group of girls!! ❤

This Monday we had a great time and got a lot of things worked out in preparation for Nursing Home Presentation, but we realized we needed more time to practice. So this Monday same time as a usual Bright Lights meeting we are going to have one more practice. We are going to sing through all the songs, run through the skit, finish the cards and we are going to assign and practice the verses we will be reciting.

img_6728

Big thank you to Lauren, Sydney and Nay for figuring out the chords for the songs we will be doing!

Lex, Cheryl and Zoe did a great job organizing the skit practice! It sounds like its going to be really good.

And here’s a couple of the girls who helped choose what verses we will be sharing.

Thank you Breanna, Cami, and Aleeza for helping prepare the craft and everyone who made cards, they are beautiful! 🙂

If you are planning to come to the nursing home on Saturday the 26th, then please come this Monday the 21st. 6:00-8:30.

And if I don’t get to see you before Thursday, Happy Thanksgiving!!

Nursing Home Presentation

Standard

IMG_1560Good morning!

Here are the details I promised. I really hope that you all can make it, and I’m open to questions, suggestions and help! 🙂

What: A presentation at Zoe and Rhyan’s great grandmas nursing home to bless the people there.

When: Saturday morning, November 26th Approximately 9:30-11:30. (Please let me know whether or not this date works for you.)

Where: Port Charlotte Rehabilitation Center

25325 Rampart Blvd. Port Charlotte, FL, 33948

Here’s what I’m thinking for what it will look like.

Everyone will arrive in time to pray together before starting and have a chance to talk to some of the residents. Starting at 10:00 we will have a 1 hour program (at the longest) and then we will give out cards with Bible verses and possibly cookies and talk one on one with the people there.

We were trying to come up with a topic and 4 different ones were brought up and after thinking about it a bit I realized we could use all of them in a way that makes sense.

Because of Gods LOVE for us, he showed us GRACE by dying on the cross for our sins, and as a result we have HOPE and therefore are THANKFUL to Him.

Here’s the program outline so far, but when we practice on Monday I’m sure there will be some tweaks. Depending on how long it takes and how hard the songs are to do we will cut or switch out some of them. I attached links to the songs so you can see which ones they are, but they aren’t necessarily the keys we will be playing them in.

Open with introducing ourselves and prayer.
Sing: This is the Day

LOVE
Hannah M(?) Share how God loves us
Recite a verse:
Sing: Here is Love
Sing: The Love of God

GRACE
Skit : Courtroom illustration of how God is Just, but was able to show us Grace.
Sing: Amazing Grace
Sing: Redeemed

HOPE
Testimony: We need someone to share how God has given them hope! Pray about it. 🙂
Sing: I’ll fly away
Sing: I have this Hope

THANKFULLNESS
Recite a verse
Sing: Count your blessings
Sing: Give Thanks with a grateful heart

Closing
Sing: What a friend we have in Jesus
Pray

P.S. This is open to any Bright Lights girl, even if you haven’t been able to come recently, as long as you are able to come Monday to the practice we’d love to have you be a part of it. 🙂
