ADD YOUR OWN DATES: ALL-NIGHTER
We’re kicking off this school year with an all-night event designed to help students connect with their small group, invite friends, have some fun, and hear a little bit about Jesus. Get the details on our website!
LIFELINES: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON FRIENDSHIP
WEEK 2 BIG IDEA: Godly friendships help you grow.
Do you have any friendships you can really count on — the kind of friendships you might call your “lifelines?” God designed us to have friendships we can trust, but God also knew we’d need some help figuring out how to build friendships that are lifelines for each other. In this 4-week series, we’ll look at the kind of friendship Jesus models for us: friendship that lets us be real, gives us a chance to grow, gives us a group when we feel alone, and can even change the world.
Middle schoolers and high schoolers are both part of our “youth ministry,” but 11-year-olds are so different from 18-year-olds! To help us navigate the differences between both of these age groups, and make the most of our time with them, check out these two podcast episodes from Youth Ministry Answers. Episode 77 is all about middle school and episode 78 is all about high school!
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
