Current middle SCHOOL SERIES: CHANGE
A 4 WEEK discussion ON JUSTICE
Our world is not as it should be. There is pain, evil, and injustice all around us. In the age of social media, it is easier than ever to stay informed about all sorts of injustices, but is sending a tweet, posting a selfie, orsharing a video about an inspiring cause really all it takes to make a difference in the world? Or is it possible that justice is about something much more than a hashtag? In this 4-week series, you'll challenge students to not just post about the injustices around them, but to actually do something about them by loving mercy, acting justly, and walking humbly.

30 Hour Famine Breakfast in The House
We’re wrapping our monthlong focus on justice and service by sharing a meal together with all students in 4th-12th grade. This meal will be the official end of the 30 Hour Famine for those participating in the fast. We want all kids there though…even ini they didn’t participate in the 30 Hour Famine!
Parents, we’re looking for 5-7 families to donate breakfast casseroles and fruit plates. If you’d be able to help us out, please let us know asap! Thanks!
