Youth Counter Culture

This August our youth Sunday School time will be combined in the Barn and focused on what it means to live like a Christian in our present culture.  With the massive cultural shifts that have taken place in our day, our students are being increasingly forced to choose where they stand.  The danger they face particularly is the temptation to jettison God’s truth in favor of the current culture’s ideals.  This series points students first to a zeal for God’s glory and builds a foundation of the gospel before diving into “the issues.”  That way we have the basis for engaging these things.

These are the topics we will cover in August:
Aug 2: Culture
Aug 9: Human Life
Aug 16:  Sexuality
Aug 23: Race

Youth will want to join in for dynamic teaching and discussion.  We meet at 9:40am in the Barn.  Parents, do you want to be able to discuss these important topics with your students?  Attend the Adult “Merge” Sunday School in the Chapel on the same weeks for the same Counter Culture study.

By the way, August 30 is Promotion Sunday!
