During Middle school (5th-8th grade) we know it’s a chaotic environment for students due to new school environments, competitive sports, all kinds of new things happening to them and their thinking changes about who they are and trying to figure out who they are. They’re capable of owning their relationship with Jesus. On Sunday morning we want to challenge them with their relationship Jesus, family, and friend.
We have services at the Fairfield Township location at the 9 o'clock and 11 o'clock service downstairs in the Youth Room. Below is a description of our current series.
Sometimes, life can be pretty brutal. Just when we think life will leave us feeling happy and satisfied, it ends up leaving us feeling emptier than ever before. Just imagine the emptiness Jesus’ followers must have felt when, after all His promises of what was to come, Jesus was crucified. Students see that, while life here on earth can often leave us empty, Jesus came to give us a new kind of life — more life, in fact, than we could ever imagine.
It should only take a quick look around to realize there are no perfect families (not even in the Bible) but that doesn’t stop us from worrying about our families’ quirks, flaws, and shortcomings. This month we will challenge students to give their families grace, seek resolution to their conflicts, trust God through difficult transitions, and to treat more friends like family.
