Current HIGH SCHOOL SERIES: Thanks for sharing
A 2-WEEK SERIES ON SHARING

When you were a kid, you probably had to be reminded to share some things. Your toys. Your cookies. Your video games. But learning to share isn’t just for kids. Jesus had to remind His followers to share a few things, too. In this 2-week series, we’ll explore passages from the Gospels and the Book of Acts through the lens of community. Each week, we’ll look at one passage about Jesus and one story about how some of His first followers put His teachings into practice in the days of the early Church. As we do, our students will learn to better love and care for each other by sharing what they have: their stuff and their lives.
