STRONGER: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON HURT AND PAIN
WEEK 2 BIG IDEA: When life doesn’t make sense, God can be trusted.
Life hurts sometimes. If you haven’t already experienced it, there will be a day when you’ll encounter pain, failure, or loss. Sometimes the hurt we feel happens because of something we do, or something that is done to us, or something that is no one’s fault at all. In this 4-week series, we’ll talk about how, when life hurts, or goes wrong, or doesn’t make sense, these things are true: Jesus can redeem what’s gone wrong, God can be trusted, God gives us each other, and God helps us persevere.
We know you want what’s best for the teenagers you lead, but you can only give your best if you are at your best. This week, take a few minutes to listen to this reminder from April Diaz to fill up on God first, so you can pour yourself out for others.
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
