With all the controversy surrounding the Noah movie, we took a night to talk through the Biblical account of Noah and the ark. Our desire is for our students to think Biblically and critically, so we knew it was important to understand what the Biblical account says. But it’s just as important to learn how […]
As we recently had another tragedy involving a student death in our community, we decided to stop and talk about what happens when we experience seasons of hopelessness. We trust Jesus in all things and are thankful for His presence, as we walk through tough times!
Here’s a snapshot of what’s going on in our student ministry this month!
Chapter four of the Book of Jonah is possibly the most awkward chapter in the entire Bible. We see Jonah’s true heart motivation and we also see God re-orient Jonah to what’s really important.
