IO For Sunday April 29, 2018

Hey guys!

We are coming up quickly on the end of the year! Only 5 weeks left until summer kickoff! I want to challenge you to continue fighting to finish off this year well! We have a great Sunday planned this week!

Here's what's happening:

Coming up in the month of May!

  • May 6 - Baptisms
  • May 13 - No InsideOut (Mother's Day)
  • May 20 - Outing Sunday 
  • May 27 - No InsideOut (Memorial Day)
  • June 3 - Summer kickoff

Keep fighting to get your students to InsideOut!  This part of the year is really slow and there is a lot going on in the lives of our students, so don't get down on yourself or your group size. Just continue to engage with your students outside of InsideOut!

IO For Sunday April 22, 2018

Hey guys!

I hope you all had a great week!  I just want you to know that you guys are awesome, and I appreciate all of you.  

Here's what is coming up this week:

  • Hosting - Ryan Flora and Jackson Speed
  • Leading worship - Clay Finnesand
  • Speaking - Gerald Fadayomi
  • Small group questions are attached!


In other news...

Come by the leader room this week before InsideOut.  We are required every few months to purge our rosters. This means that we give you guys a chance to update your rosters (figuring out how many students on your roster are still coming / making sure the people that are coming are on the roster). We will have the rosters printed out and we will have highlighters there for you to mark which students in your small group are still attending, etc.

    Outing Sunday

    Wahoo! The weekend is coming; which means THE BEST NIGHT OF THE WEEK is upon us!!

    Before I get too far into this, I wanna give a shoutout to Rob Bailey. Rob was my partner Coach for the Freshman Guys Small Group Leaders. He and his wife are moving to Houston and I'll be taking over as the Freshman Coach for all of you for the time being. 

    This Sunday is going to be incredible. If you have been keeping up with insideoutbb on social media, then you know it is “People’s Choice” Sunday! They are letting the people (you included!) decide the IO programming (opening song, hosting game, worship music, and the talk) for the afternoon! Are they crazy? Probably. But it is going to be a blast! (psst! BTW, we all know who the REAL Peoples Choice is, right?)

    giphy-downsized (2).gif

    As if this Sunday wasn't cool enough already, it is also Outing Sunday! Be prepared to do something fun with your group in place of the normal small group/dinner time - make a reservation somewhere, have a picnic at BBC, go to Central Park and pick up pizza on the way, etc. Be creative! If you want to use the Small Group Questions for the week you can find them here.


    Oct. 8, this Sunday - Mission Trip Interest Meeting @ 3:30 for any leaders that would like more info about this summer’s trips

    Oct. 29 - Baptism Sunday  

    Nov. 5 - Leader Meeting @ 3:30

    Nov. 12 - Mandatory Mission Trip Interest Meeting @ 1:30 for parents and students

    Nov. 19 - No IO

    IO For Sunday October 1, 2017

    IO For Sunday September 17, 2017

    Thanks so much for the time, effort, and energy you put into making VR a great weekend! Thanks for hanging with us and being flexible as we packed out camp :) I know that a lot of you did not get to see the session on Sunday morning, so we're going to get you a link to that soon. I appreciate ya'll so much! 


    If it works out, use this Sunday to have a "group outing" at the church before IO. Maybe get some pizza delivered and just hang out with your guys and debrief VR. Pick one or two guys to talk about what VR meant to them so that the guys in your group that didn't get to go can feel included. Just a thought.

    Here is the rundown for Sunday:

    • We are meeting in the THEATER since it will just be the 9th and 10th graders
    • Clay Finnesand and Heath Baltzglier are leading worship. 
    • Tim Benitez is speaking on week 2 of Crew. The small group questions are attached.

    We have attached the updated Important Dates document that has dates for myLIFE and The WALK next year, and a lot of dates coming up for the end of this year. Print it out and put it on your refrigerator :) 

    See ya'll Sunday!
