STRONGER: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON HURT AND PAIN
WEEK 4 BIG IDEA: When life gets hard, God helps us persevere.

SERIES OVERVIEW:

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.

“When someone treats you like a person when you don’t even feel like a human, it’ll change your world.” Consider this your reminder that, when a teenager is hurting, even your “small” acts of love can make a difference.

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
