Room 1228 presents Old School

By August 4, 2009Uncategorized

Have you ever wanted to go Old School? You remember, like back in the day, when some of the biggest questions you had were:
*What should I play during recess – dodgeball or kickball?
*What should I drink with my brown-bag lunch – plain milk or chocolate?
*What dessert that will never go bad tastes best – a Twinkie or a Ding Dong?

Regardless of what time period was Old School for us, we look back on those times and smile at how simple and silly it all seems. Sometimes we wish we could go back, at least for a little while. That’s because we remember all of the fun but not much of the education.
That’s often the way that we look at the Old Testament. A lot of us had these Old School stories served to us in a Sunday School-style setting while we were munching on stale pretzels and sipping on watered-down Kool-Aid.  It may be easy for us to forget the cheesy flannel-graph presentations we saw then, but it’s even harder for us to remember the timeless lessons they held.

So we are going Old School. Accompanied by a cast of characters from the Old Testament and their encounters with God, we will find answers to today’s questions in yesterday’s stories.

This is the heartbeat of the Room 1228 theme Old School. We’re excited to launch this theme that focuses on today’s questions by studying yesterday’s stories as the latest theme in Room 1228.

To find out more about Old School and Room 1228, go to You and your group won’t want to miss the chance to go Old School with Room 1228.

We’ll have more about a special feature of the Old School theme on the blog soon, so watch for that info as well. Until then, check out Old School and let us know what you think!'
