RED Student Ministries

RED is the student ministry of Westwood Church in Orlando, Fl RED is the student ministry at Westwood Church. We are no longer defined by the world, but instead we have been REDefined by Christ.

RED is for students from 6-12th grades, as well as College-age Students.

6-12th grades meet on Sunday Mornings at 9am for breakfast and a study in God's word. We also have a 7pm Wednesday evening gathering where we have fun, build relationships, and learn together about what it means to be REDefined by Christ. We want students to:
Discover the Story of God
See their story as a part of God’s Story
Learn to become more like the central person in God’s Story: Jesus Christ

Operating as usual


DON’T FORGET we are reading through the book of John. The church is SOAPing through Romans 12. Why not read both?

Remember, this is for YOU. It benefits YOU. Treat. Yo. Self. Make time in God’s Word the best part of your day!




First person to quote John 1:1,14 to me tonight gets a CD. Show me 5 straight days of SOAPing ANY scripture and take home the CSB study Bible.


The youth hangout night with Tyson has been moved to Pastor Dan's pool. Pizza and drinks will be provided. DM us if you need the address. Come prepared with good questions for Tyson and your swimsuit!


We had a great scribe tonight. Thank goodness! This wall she's writing on isn't painted with chalkboard paint, so we may be looking at this for a LONG time! 08/09/2017

CONTEST: If you SOAP for 20 days straight (Proverbs 10-29), one of these Bibles could be yours! The female and male student who journal through all 20 days will receive the new She Reads Truth Bible or The Bible for Men. Memorized verses from Proverbs will break the tie, should a tie occur. Can you just read the Bible on your phone? Yes! What a great convenience. Nothing is quite like the physical copy though. These 2 are amazing versions that any of you would be excited to have.
In order to win, you must read a Proverb a day (starting tomorrow and ending on the 29th) and journal about it. All journal entries should include an O (observation) and an A (personal application). Entries must be presented at Red on the 30th. In the case of a tie, the student with the most memorized verses from Proverbs will win.

Born Identity

Beach Retreat Video This is "Born Identity" by on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.


Still struggling with all of the violence in the lives of Saul and David? Confused about why God would want the Amalekites annihilated? Take a minute to read this article.


Parents and Students, take a look at these posters which describe the framework of many books of the Bible. They are very well put together. Also, check out this website:
The website includes youtube videos and study guides for many books of the Bible. Take a moment to look through these materials and encourage each other to engage in God's Word.
I am very excited about this resource. I want your families to be deeply rooted in God's Word. I think that's hard to do when we don't understand it. Pray for God's wisdom and use resources like this to look deeper.
While The Bible Project would like donations for their resources they are FREE!!!


The Gospel of The Kingdom

Check out The Gospel Project!!! Someone recently introduced me to this resource. This Youtube channel has incredible videos which explain doctrine and give commentary on many books of the Bible.

In Isaiah 52 a messenger comes to tell the good news that God still reigns and that he is coming to bring his reign to earth. This video explores how Jesus s...


Students and Parents, save this info!! Here is the parent form that I need filled out for our trip to First Alliance May 18th:
Students will need a separate form filled out for the Beach Retreat. More info to come about that. Please message me (Lexi McNair) your email address, so that you can get all of the details when the email goes out. Thanks! 04/22/2016

OCS & Red

Enjoying our day in the sun! We had a great time at the Orlando City Soccer game. This is "OCS & Red" by on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.


I'm sorry if I spoiled the ending to Minority Report. Something that I hope it made you think about is the fact that God knows it all. He knows the beginning and the end. He knows every single thing in between. God knew the Amalekites better than they knew themselves. He knew their wickedness and the terrorists they would continue to be for the nation of Israel. If Saul had obeyed God's command or if David had wiped out the rest of the Amalekites, Haman's decree to kill all the Jews would never have been written (Esther 3). Luckily God had the perfect young woman in the perfect position of authority (Esther 4), "for such a time as this." You will have to check out Esther to find out what happened there. Notice that Haman was an agagite. Sound familiar? Think Amalekite royalty or just read 1 Samuel 15. 03/19/2016

RED Youth Group on Instagram: “DON'T FORGET... Meet at the West Oaks Mall AMC at 4:30 tomorrow!!...

4:30pm tomorrow, AMC West Oaks 14. $7. Dinner afterwards. Bring friends! “DON'T FORGET... Meet at the West Oaks Mall AMC at 4:30 tomorrow!! It's early so that we can get dinner afterwards. Bring friends!!!”


Edit: This might not be a series to watch. Too much inappropriate. Forgive me. I couldn't find a parental advisory before this aired. Unfortunately, most of the more inappropriate content was the least accurate. If you DID watch, I challenge you to compare this hour of content to 1 Samuel 1-19.

This show about Samuel, Saul, and David premieres in 45 minutes on abc. Watch it! Compare this series with what I have said and with 1 Samuel. Hold the truth up to Hollywood and see if they get it right. PS- my fingers are crossed for an accurate David and Goliath scene. Severed head and all! Twisted?


After church, this Sunday, I will be heading downtown for the opening Orlando City Soccer game. Tickets are $22.50. Does anybody want to go? Game starts at 2pm. You have until midnight TONIGHT to express interest.
I (Lexi) will drive and bring people home after the game.


Did you miss RED this morning? No worries, read this quick summary:

Psalm 139
David hid from Saul, but he could not hide from the Lord. But why was he hiding? Saul hated him and sought to kill him! David was to be the next King and it was becoming obvious to Saul.
Who called David to be king? Samuel? No. God, Himself, called David to be king. Instead of being angry at his situation, David drew close to God. He confessed his hatred for those who opposed Him, like Saul. Yet, David humbled himself and asked God to search him and point out anything within himself that was offensive to God. Verses 1 and 23-24 bookend this beautiful song well.


See you tonight...#redorlando
