What We’re Learning: We Are Young
Some adults look down on middle school students. Let’s be honest, many middle school students look down on themselves. Timothy was a young Christian that Paul believed in so much he wrote him letters to encourage him, which became books in the Bible! We believe in middle school students and more importantly, so does God. By studying Paul’s words to Timothy in the Bible, we hope middle school students will believe that they are difference makers through the power of God’s Spirit.
