We don’t need to look far to see that our teenagers are hurting. While today’s parents, stepparents, and ministry leaders are more aware of teen anxiety, depression, and suicide, we often aren’t sure how to respond. We need practical, accessible, and trusted resources that spark vital conversations with our teenagers.
That’s why our youth ministry is beginning a new four-week series called Faith in an Anxious World. This Summer, we want to propel your young person and other students toward a deeper understanding of Christ—one in which he becomes to them not simply a teacher and miracle worker, but a living, breathing example of the wholeness we can experience in our daily walk with God. Each week they’ll talk about anxiety, delve into stories throughout the Bible where God enters into an anxious situation and uses it to nurture growth, and discover spiritual practices they can use to look to God as they navigate daily life. And each of our gatherings will prompt students to have meaningful conversations beyond their youth meeting times.
