Are our teenagers falling through the cracks?
This chaotic time in our world is affecting all of us. I've seen several stories recently about how the level of trauma that we're all experiencing is not even quantifiable.
What about our teenagers? Their world was turned upside down, as well. Their educational support was taken away when schools closed, not to mention their friend support system. And when churches closed, their spiritual support went away as well.
Churches are trying everything they can to stay connected to their congregations. Virtual worship services are our normal, now. But our teenagers aren't getting the discipleship that they truly need. While we believe that discipleship should come from the home first, we would like to give additional support to the parents in this crazy time.
One of our contributing writers, Jane Hill, will be leading a virtual study for 8th through 12th graders beginning August 1st and meeting Saturdays and Wednesdays for 6 - one hour sessions.
Only a 6 session commitment!
During this time she will be teaching them how to study the Bible for themselves.
Here is a short interview I did with Jane about why she feels that teenagers should learn to study the Bible for themselves.
If you know a teen that would be interested - send them to THIS LINK to sign up!
