Tonight at Spark the message was simple: Trust in God.

We opened by reading Proverbs 3:5-6 together, which says:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding

in all you ways acknowledge Him

and He will make your paths straight.


 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"

Tonight at Spark the message we taught to the students was: Depend on Jesus when you are worried.

Every year, Chapham University does a survey of the top fears in America.  It turns out there are a lot of things that many Americans are afraid of including public speaking, heights, bugs, drowning, small spaces, flying, clowns, zombies, blood, strangers, darkness and many more.  Last night at the Flame Kickoff, the students participated in an activity that challenged to face many of these fears head on.
