Last night the middle school squad ate some pizza, played some smash bros, and dove into Mark 2 to talk about the kind of friends we should be to others! Our lesson reflected on the obstacles that the friends of the paralytic had to overcome to bring him before Jesus. Its sadly common for students today to develop friendships that center around a particular interest or event, but never develop an interest in each other personally. Our lesson last night challenged students to go beyond being "circumstantial" friends, and become "mat-carrying" friends.
Next week we will begin our December theme called "here with us" that focuses on Gods presence with us!!
Have a wonderful week!
