END OF 2012 SUMMER SEASON - Week 7: August 7th & 14th

To wrap up 2012's Fun & Fellowship, 8 qualifying BUCKS were taken to the Putt-Putt Fun Center in Hurst. They had a lot of fun racing go-karts, riding bumper boats, playing miniature golf, and winning tickets in the arcade. For dinner, the BUCKS were once again treated to pizza.

To meet the learning objective and qualify for this year's last Fun & Fellowship event, each Young BUCK had to know the 2 Great Commandments, the 10 Commandments, and all of the 21 teaching commands of Christ found in the Gospel according to Matthew that we studied this year. The BUCKS were given verbal and written exams and had to know all of the material pretty much word for word. With the teaching commands of Christ, the Young BUCKS had to cite both the verse and the reference and they did a great job! For extra credit, the BUCKS were allowed to recite the Lord's Prayer which they learned in Week 1 and they demonstrated that they had retained that material as well.

It was a fun and exciting summer for the BUCKS. Please pray for these young men as they start the upcoming school year. Pray that the teachings and commands of our Lord Jesus be imprinted on their hearts and minds. Pray that the LORD grant them a strong faith and bless them as they try to put into practice what they have learned. Pray they be a blessing as they share Christ and His ways with their families and friends.

To the BUCKS: Be sure to keep your parents informed regarding our Communion & Reunion meetings each month. Family members & friends are welcome to attend. Anyone needing more information or wanting FREE materials offered by the YBC, please see contact info below.

In Conclusion: LORD allowing, next year's (2013) YBC Discipleship Program will bring new objectives and new fun as we seek to Build Up Christ's Kingdom as Saints!

During this week's Lecture & Learning the BUCKS went over several commands and played a game called "To Tell The Truth", like the TV game show. This was a fun way to help the BUCKS exercise the practice of discernment. This was in light of their memory verse Matthew 7:15 where Jesus instructs his followers to "Watch out for false prophets".

To Tell The Truth
