PAUL'S LETTERS - on wednesday nights, students are learning and discussing truths from paul's letters in the new testament. we are following the journeys of paul that were described in the book of acts. on each mission trip he visited regions and cities, made disciples, and encouraged the new church fellowships. he followed by writing letters to his new christian brothers and sisters to encourage them and help them believe the truth. we are diving into this journey with our teens and will tackle tough issues along the way. our teens are discovering this rich awesomeness of god through the stories he has told and the way he has changed our lives because of jesus. please pray for them as they are challenged to live with boldness and confidence in jesus. and pray that they will love each other and god's church the way he does.
BOOK OF ACTS - our sunday-school small groups from 6th grade through 10th grade are walking verse by verse through the book of acts. they are encountering and discussing many truths that help them navigate through the difficult choices and issues they face every day. this is happening at the same time as our pastor is preaching through the book of acts on sunday mornings. we pray they will hear our pastor speak through god's word, come to small group to study it again, and walk through the letters of paul on wednesdays for a big picture view of gods's heart for his church.
WORLDVIEW & APOLOGETICS - our 11-12th grade students are working through the "welcome to college" book by jonathan morrow. this book details and explores subjects like, "can i trust the bible?", "do all roads lead to god?", "the problem of evil and suffering", and "christianity and sexuality". please pray that our discussions will be gospel centered and will equip our teens to guard their heart and minds in christ jesus and learn to listen to others and lead them to the truth.
