What to Do with Teenagers on Halloween

What to Do with Teenagers on Halloween

Parenting teenagers is quite a new experience. What thrilled them a couple of years ago merely induces eye rolls and groans now. They’re too old to trick-or-treat and too young to hit the town on their own. What on earth can you do with teenagers on Halloween?

Host a Bake-A-Thon

What do all teens have in common? They love to eat! There are so many fun, frightening, and ferocious goodies to make and bake for Halloween. Put a new twist on the old Halloween party and invite teens to come for an evening of creativity in the kitchen. You can stock up on all the ingredients, or have partygoers bring their own. This is even more fun if you play some spooky soundtracks in the background.

Hold a Frightening Film Fest

If it weren’t for scary movies, Halloween would probably have gone the way of Arbor Day long ago. Teens might enjoy seeing a little of everything, but you might want to keep it closer to a G-rating, opt for some black-and-white scary movies from the 50’s and 60’s or some Halloween-themed cartoons, like Peanuts or Disney.

Offer to Chaperone Younger Trick-or-Treaters

Teenagers can still have fun trick-or-treating, while pretending to adult, by chaperoning some younger kids. This is an excellent idea for groups of friends with all age children — the teens can escort the younger children, while the grownups enjoy a parent’s night at home or on the town. If you aren’t comfortable putting the little ones in the car with the big guys (or maybe if your teens don’t drive yet), drop them off at a local church for trunk-or-treat or a fall carnival instead of turning them out on the city streets.

Have a Backyard Bonfire

For those on a budget (and who isn’t?), you can enjoy a very inexpensive — yet terrifyingly fun! — Halloween with nothing but a stack of limbs and a couple of lawn chairs. Host a bonfire. Teens can even step it up a notch by bringing their own hot dogs and marshmallows to roast! This is the perfect solution if you just finished the fall yard work and have some limbs, bushes, and other trimmings to discard of. Hint: Contact the fire department ahead of time to make sure there are no burn bans in effect and to get any needed permits for the bonfire.

Come to Revelation Walk!

Better than the best haunted house, Revelation Walk is a unique experience atop the mountain behind Eden Westside Baptist Church. Take a thrilling ride up the mountain and then enjoy a stroll through the dramatic live scenes and performances depicting numerous life events, as well as a Biblical account of the End Times. In this season of fear, Revelation Walk is a real yet uplifting message of hope in these uncertain times. Thousands attend every year, and groups are welcome!

IF Jesus is the answer IF Hell is real IF A choice is demanded THEN WHAT SHOULD OUR CHURCH BE DOING? Harvest Prayer Time 3rd Sunday nights

Harvest Prayer Time

Where do we begin… Bro Jacky has been burdened and called by Jesus to set aside a service every third Sunday to pray for one thing specific: to cry out in prayer for the lost of our region.  As we are praying heavily for Jesus, our FATHER, to search our soul of unconfessed sin so we don’t have any thing between us and The God of the Universe, and we are crying out for God to reach those in need of salvation….. a homeless man walks into our church doors, after walking back and forth and states “I’m homeless and need someone to talk to” and GAVE HIS LIFE TO JESUS!  You have not because you ask not!!  Pastor followed in obedience to what he was called to do and GOD SHOWED UP IN A HUGE WAY!

Harvest Prayer Time

IF Jesus is the answer IF Hell is real IF A choice is demanded THEN WHAT SHOULD OUR CHURCH BE DOING? Harvest Prayer Time 3rd Sunday nights

If you missed this special Harvest Prayer Time service, you can begin praying right now for anyone that you know that is lost and does not know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord.  Also, plan to join us for our next third Sunday night Harvest Prayer Time service which will be Sunday, August 20, 2017 at 6:00 PM.

You do not have to be a member of Eden Westside Baptist Church to attend this event.  If your church does not have a Sunday night service, please feel free to join us.

Let’s see what God is going to continue to do with our collective prayers!

Young Adult Ministry roofs Veteran's house Pell City Alabama

On Celebration Sunday, Eden Westside Baptist Partied Like It Wasn’t Raining Buckets

On Celebration Sunday, Eden Westside Baptist Partied Like It Wasn’t Raining Buckets:  The people of Eden Westside Baptist Church work a lot. We work hard to keep our grounds looking nice, and we work at making our guests feel warm and welcome. We work hard to support our missions, including local missions like helping St. Clair’s needy veterans, and global missions like our mission trips to Haiti. We work to give our children great programs like Vacation Bible School and AWANA, and we work to feed the hungry right here in St. Clair County through our food pantry ministry.

Young Adult Ministry roofs Veteran's house Pell City Alabama

But every once in awhile, even the most diligent of God’s workers need to take some time off to celebrate! It’s important to take stock of what God is doing through our efforts and to praise and thank Him for what He has blessed our church to accomplish over the past year.

That’s exactly what Celebration Sunday was all about. Members of Eden Westside spent the entire day focusing on God’s spectacular achievements here for the church year 2016-17. This celebration helps us to be sure we’re giving God ALL the glory for His amazing works, and also helps rejuvenate our members and prepare them for the work that lies ahead in 2017-18.

Eden Westside Baptist Church Children's Ministry in Pell City Alabama collects 300 bags to deliver to Haitian children on mission trip

In spite of the rain, EWBC members enjoyed a relaxed and jovial church service, complete with a video highlighting some of the mind-boggling accomplishments God achieved here over the past year. Some of the most notable reasons to celebrate include:

 

  • We have almost paid off our debt through the Embrace the Vision campaign! A whopping $1.5 million of the original $1.9 million debt is paid off — leaving just $450,000 to go. After this debt is paid off, we can begin collecting the money necessary to complete the Kids of the Kingdom building. We’re almost there!
  • A newly renovated children’s center was unveiled on Celebration Sunday.
  • We’ve made renovations to the sanctuary and foyer of our Eden Campus, including new paint, flooring and carpeting, lighting and more.
  • The Lord is moving powerfully through our youth department, as our young people dedicate their time and efforts to the Lord through opportunities like Missions Week, FUGE Camp, and student-led worship. Our youth department ministers to kids in more than 20 area schools!
  • Our Upward Sports program reaches hundreds of children and their families each year, most of which do not have church homes, and many of whom have never heard the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • In less than three years, our Leeds River Campus (under the loving guidance of Rick and Cindy Ernest) has become self-supportive. Planning for a new renovation for the children’s department is underway, and the campus is already reaching our Spanish-speaking brothers and sisters through a special service that provides earphones and English to Spanish translators, so Hispanic speakers can hear and receive the Gospel right alongside our English speaking members.

Brother Jacky also spoke about what God has done here at Eden Westside this year, and what the Lord has in store for the year to come. He talked about:

  • 133 new church members, plus 16 new members at the River Campus, and 85 who joined through belief in the Lord Jesus and baptism! That’s 149 new members of EWBC, ya’ll!
  • Since 2013, we’ve sent more than 60 people to Haiti, including teams to help build the new medical clinic in Savon Carrie. The clinic had its very first successful surgery this year! This is in addition to the many souls saved and lives changed through our mission to the precious Haitian people.
  • In part thanks to a brand new website and social media accounts, Eden Westside is now reaching people from Washington State to the nation of Germany! The Revelation Walk commercial on our YouTube channel has been viewed more than 51,000 times, and our team is busy producing other productions.
  • We just commissioned over 100 teachers to serve in our Life Discovery classes for the coming year. The tremendous growth in our church and small groups is largely due to our powerful prayer meetings, which we started in January. EWBC’s devoted staff and loving members meet each Thursday morning at 8 a.m. to pray for our church and that we are able to reach the lost and those in our communities who need a church home. God is hearing AND ANSWERING our prayers!

After the service, everyone headed to the top of Revelation Mountain for a picnic. Unfortunately, our annual Old Timers versus Young Guns softball game was rained out. Pastor is fairly confident that the Lord allowed the rain so the younger men wouldn’t have to be embarrassed by their inaptitude at bat and around the bases.

But whatever the reason, the rain didn’t damper our spirits. Members and guests enjoyed free barbecue sandwiches and hotdogs, tables loaded with some of the South’s finest desserts, and tons of good fun. Folks socialized, joked and laughed, and many people got to know new faces and friends that they ordinarily don’t get to see.

Doesn’t this sound exciting? Join us at Eden Westside this Sunday, and become a part of what God’s building here. Then you can celebrate with us on Celebration Sunday next year!

Eden Westside Baptist Church is one church – two locations:  Eden Campus and Leeds River Campus.  For more information, please contact us at 205.338.7711.

Each second Sunday at 2:00 PM, our ladies meet at one of the cottages at St. Martin’s and spend an hour or so, just loving some some of these senior ladies.  Their goal is to minister to ladies in assisted living who do not have regular family visits and feel basically alone.

This group brings a craft or something to do, assist the senior ladies with the craft, talk, laugh and sing to them and sing with them.  Sometimes, they sing old hymns that they are familiar with and sometimes the ladies sing along.

This month, this team met for lunch together after morning worship and then headed on over to St. Martin’s.  They took Christian coloring sheets and colors/markers for the ladies to color.  Also, one of the ladies at the facility had a Connect4 game that she recently got and was excited about so this ministry team played the game, too.

Everyone had a great time building relationships with each other and ministering to senior adult ladies at St. Martin’s in the Pines.  If you are not already participating in a missions project at Eden Westside Baptist Church, please talk to your Life Discovery teacher or our Missions Minister, Bro. Scotty Pinson.

Vacation Bible School 2017 - June 5-9 Eden Campus and Leeds River Campus July 24-28. 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for all children ages 4 through 8th graders.

Vacation Bible School 2017

Vacation Bible School 2017: School getting out is an exciting time! That is, until the second week, when every dish in the house is dirty, there are laundry piles in the corners tall enough to hold a rappelling competition, and the living room floor looks like the US Marine Corps used it for obstacle course training. Then you start counting the days until the big, yellow bus once again chugs down your street so early in the morning.

Vacation Bible School 2017 - June 5-9 Eden Campus and Leeds River Campus July 24-28. 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for all children ages 4 through 8th graders.

How are you going to survive the summer?

Easy! Bring the kids down to Eden Westside Baptist Church for Vacation Bible School, where they can do some fun activities, learn some nifty stuff about the Bible, and you can have a few hours to get your sanity back!

Vacation Bible School 2017

This year, our VBS theme is “Victory.” We’ll be talking about how important Bible characters like Joshua, Gideon, and King David got victories in their day, and how Jesus Christ gave us all victory once and for all on the Cross.

Our campus in Eden has Vacation Bible School this year from June 5-9 and the River Campus holds their VBS from July 24-28, 2017. Both Bible Schools are from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the evenings. VBS is open to all children ages 4 through 8th graders.

Vacation Bible School is a free summer event.

Students will get to meet lots of other kids and experience arts and crafts, Bible study sessions, play time and more, in a fun, high energy way. Students will learn Bible verses, get lots of chances to earn fun prizes, and even get yummy snacks!

Register online at www.EdenWestside.com because you will not want your child to miss this year’s exciting VBS.

Come a little early on the first night so we can confirm your kiddos registration. Don’t forget to bring your friends’ and neighbors’ kids so they can get some much-needed “adult” time this summer, too.

If you would more information, please contact LeighAnne Jones, our Children’s Ministry Director, at 205.338.7711, extension 242.
