For the first three weekends this November, middle school student small groups will be in our “Me*” teaching series.

In spite of our best efforts, we can’t stop pain and loss from entering our kids’ lives. What happens when your kids’ crush asks someone else to the dance or they make a D in math? If they fuel their self-esteem on circumstances, they will be crushed. Deep down, we’re all asking for three things: 1) Love me. 2) Like me. 3) Don’t leave me. We will look at the lives of Jesus, Paul, and Jeremiah to learn how God can be the rock we always stand on in these three areas.

Starting a conversation:
Questions to ask your middle school student this month:
1) How can we know that God loves us, likes us, and won’t leave us?
2) Parent Challenge: Chances are there are some interests and hobbies your son or daughter enjoys that completely baffle you. No matter how different you are, you can always affirm your student by valuing their interests. This week, ask questions, pay extra attention, and try to take an interest in what interests them.
