Fuse Toolkit: Life on Mission

Series at a Glance

At the start of the year, we looked upward with “Faith.” Then, we turned inward during “Spiritual Practices.” Now, we’re turning our focus outward with “Life on Mission.” 

At the end of this series, students will understand: 

1. The invitation to Jesus’ mission.
In John 20:21, Jesus appears to the disciples and says, "Just as the Father has sent me, I am now sending you." We are invited to live the same way Jesus lived.

2.  The definition of Jesus’ mission.
Christ’s mission was “reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:18-21). He came to restore the relationship between man and God. That is now our ministry, our mission.

3. The direction of Jesus’ mission.
How did Jesus go about this reconciliation, and how can we partner with Him in doing so? These are the stories we find in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.  

This series will highlight what Jesus saved us for, filled us with, and empowered to do! For six weeks, we will Jesus’ life and invite students to live in the same way so Jesus’ mission becomes our mission.

Key Verses

"Jesus repeated his greeting, ’Peace to you!’ And he told them, ’Just as the Father has sent me, I’m now sending you.’” - John 20:21 (TPT) 

“All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” - 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 (ESV)

Tips and Reminders for Fuse Volunteers

  • Know seniors who just graduated? Encourage them to sign up for Gauntlet Senior Retreat! Seniors missed out on a lot this year, so we are sending them off with an experience to remember. Spots are limited, so make sure they sign up fast! Find more information here.
  • Look for outdoor opportunities to get together. Enjoy the sunshine. Help in the community. Building the community doesn’t always have to be within the church walls.
