THE UNTOUCHABLES: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON JESUS

If you’ve been following Jesus for some time, you know it’s often easy to become numb to just how controversial Jesus’ message and ministry actually were while He was on earth. Jesus made enemies of both religious leaders and the government in part because of the way He treated the most “untouchable” members of society. In this series, you’ll help students see and explore the significance of the fact that Jesus ate with the despised, valued the outcasts, restored the sinful, and forgave the unforgivable.

It’s often tough to understand why teenagers do what they do. One moment they’re calm and rational, but the next they’re agitated and emotional. One day they’re making incredibly wise choices, but the next they’re making disastrous mistakes. Yesterday they earned your trust, but today it seems they’ve lost it once again. If that sounds familiar, you’ve got to check out the book A Parent’s Guide to the Teenage Brain, by Mark Oestreicher.

Hey parents, help us out. As the parent of a teenager, what’s one thing our church could do to better serve and help you?
