For THIS SUNDAY (9/13):
We know this is something new and different for all of us, so this week's lesson will be more of a quick intro and making sure everyone is set up and ready to go!
Here is a quick checklist for this Sunday's first gathering:
- Download WhatsApp
Email the phone number you would like to use in WhatsApp to Kimmie HERE to get added to the SR Middle School Group
- Watch for a message from Leanette (your awesome leader!) in "WhatsApp" & the first video this Sunday
- Respond sometime on Sunday so we know it's working for everyone & to know who is all a part of the group
- Make sure you have access to the book "Soul Surfer" by Bethany Hamilton (books will hopefully be here soon)
We will read about a chapter a week. There will be weekly posts in WhatsApp (probably Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays), so make sure to watch and respond consistently each week. These posts will have discussion questions and other fun prompts, games or videos. Also, make sure to watch out for occasional Zoom invites, which will be held on Sundays at 6:30 pm. We hope this is a time for middle schoolers to talk about the book, life and see their Sugar River friends!
We have order some books for you to have (free for you, from your Sugar River Family). Unfortunately, they have not arrived yet and will not be ready to be picked up today. Sorry for the shipping delay! We will let you know when they arrive!
Otherwise, here are some other options for purchase if you prefer Kindle or Audio!
If you would like to purchase the book through Kindle, the book is linked here:
For audio, it is linked HERE
. Audible has a 30 day free trial, if you would like to go that route! Our book study will last longer than 30 days, but it might be something fun to try out!
This new format for middle school is designed to be easy to follow and have questions that will allow middle schoolers to reflect on their own lives and faith. Do your best to read about a chapter per week, but no worries if you're not able to finish the reading for that week! We would love it if you join whether you've read that week's chapter or not! We pray this is a blessing to this age group during this time, as a way to see friends and spend time with God!
If you have any questions, please email Leanette Dieck HERE or Kimmie Holmes HERE.
Hope to sea you this Sunday!!
