Youth on Wednesdays
6:00 PM in the Youth Lounge (enter on the Calvary Dr side)
Belonging is our connection to others. It's how we feel like we fit in with groups of people. We might say we belong when we are with people who really know, understand and accept us for who we are.
Belonging is one of the great spiritual hungers of our day. We have so many reasons for telling people they don't belong - because of their personality, neighborhood, income, race, ethnicity, immigration status or disability. We have friends and followers on social media, but these connections often remind us of who isn't following us or where we don't belong.
We want to belong so badly that we will go to great lengths - even hiding or changing parts of our identity or pursuing a false sense of purpose - to feel it. Teenagers are desperate to belong.
This week, we continue our discussion on belonging. We'll examine Biblical texts that offer hope for our teens. Pray for our youth and youth leadership as we explore Belonging, Wednesday at 6 PM!
