DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE GUY WHO HAD HIS LEFT SIDE CUT OFF?

He's all right now.

INFO FOR WEDNESDAY

We continue our Things I Wish Jesus Never Said teaching series. We'll be looking at some of the tough words of Jesus.

This week, Josh Duncan will deliver the message and his focus will be Matthew 4:18-22, the calling of the disciples. It will be a powerful time to really consider what Jesus is calling us to.

Small Group will be an amazing opportunity for you to continue making positive deposits in the lives of the teenagers. The time you spend in Small Group MATTERS! Remember, every student is going through incredible change and experiencing outrageous pressure at a time in life when they are least prepared to deal with it. You are a BLESSING for walking the road alongside them. Showing up is a slam dunk, touchdown, goal, a WIN!
