We are kicking of all our fall programs and that means we have a slew of new messages coming up during our weekly program. One of my favorite things that we do is get to have time to share a sermon on Sunday mornings with our students, and I wanted to give you a look at some of the things we will be talking about.
This is our first series for the fall. The idea is simple to use popular movies to teach the Bible. The Bible routinely uses things that aren't Christian to help spread the message of Christ and we want to do the same by using movies that we likely have seen or heard of to talk about the message of Jesus.
2 Big Words
Justification and Sanctification. These two words are complicated and likely words that none of our middle schoolers have ever thought about or have any idea what they mean. For two weeks we are going to break down these concepts into a simple explanation that our students can understand. They are big words and are very important parts of the Christian faith so I want to make sure that we touch on their meanings.
Me & My Peeps
I saw the peep concept years ago and have kept the idea filed away as an image I'd like to use as we talk about friends. Every middle school student sees their friends as a big importance and we want to spend some time talking about this felt need and explore what it means to have good friends and to be a good friend.
