WHY WAS THE CAT AFRAID OF THE TREE?

Because of its bark.

INFO FOR WEDNESDAY

This week in Philippians, our focus will be Chapter 4, Verses 10-20. We get to see a picture of how God provides.

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!

WHAT FOODS ARE ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR YOUNG PEOPLE?

Pro-teens!

INFO FOR WEDNESDAY

We have some Middle School small group leaders who are coming off of an AMAZING weekend at Winter Retreat. Why not ask Erica, Analisa, Lauren V., Lauren F., Brian S., Jacob or David about their experience? I think you will be inspired.

This week in Philippians, we are going to read some verses in the Bible that many people simply scan over, Philippians 2:19-30. There is so much good insight in this passage though! And I'm excited to learn right along with you as Josh McBride will share the message with us on Wednesday. (Way to go, Josh!)
