WEEK 4 BIG IDEA: Jesus wants to be your best friend.

You’ve probably had an experience or two that has taught you the power of a good friendship and the danger of a destructive one. This is never more true than during the teenage years, when teenagers are the most susceptible they’ll ever be to the influence of their peers. Teenagers, though, sometimes have difficulty seeing the way their friendships influence them. So, in this 4-week series, we’ll be discussing how to choose our friends wisely, exploring the qualities of a healthy friendship, encouraging students to build friendships with wise people, and helping them see Jesus as their best and truest friend.


Your words matter. This week, use them to bring life and hope to a teenager or a parent. If you need a little inspiration, check this out by clicking here.

Choose a volunteer to celebrate this week. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
