Youth Ministry
Have you ever been wronged? Had your feelings hurt? Held a grudge? We all have! And when things like that happen, we’re left wondering how to move on—especially when we don’t get an apology. In these 6 th – 12 th grade series, we’ll take a look at the one thing Jesus offers us that can help us let go and move forward: forgiveness.
