SEPTEMBER SERIES OVERVIEW
We love our YTH Family -- not only that, but we love the students in our schools, on our teams, and in our neighborhoods who are not part of our YTH family. As we seek to live and love like Jesus, we believe that Every Empty Seat Matters, Groups Are Where We Grow, and Saved Peopel Serve People. Throughout this series, we will see how Jesus and the early church lived out these values in Luke's writings. We will see that because every empty seat matters, we should love those around us enough to invite them to Jesus. We will see the value and the cost of investing in a Group where you can be vulnerable and be held accountable. And we will see how God has created each and every one of us to use our gifts to serve those around us. We do this because we love those God has placed around us. Check out the September series, I <3 YTH, here.
JUNE SERIES OVERVIEW
Friends come in all different shapes and personalities -- that is the beauty of God's design for relationship! Over this 3-week series, we will be walking through what the book of Proverbs says about friendship. While friends are all different, we will discover what the Bible says about what should be consistent when we ask, "What is a Friend?" We need the hope of the Gospel to speak to our deepest needs: salvation and connection. This series will convict, challenge, and encourage all of us as we see God's design for our friendships. Check out the June series, Meet the Group, here.
