Junior High Summer Bible Study
Thursdays, 10-11:30am (June6-August 8)
Teenagers with a firm faith foundation, who know what they believe and why, aren’t easily
swayed by others who might challenge their faith. This summer, we want to continue to
build on that foundation for our students. We will look at some of the most important Bible lessons
like who is God, who is Jesus, and why do we need a Savior; why does life hurt; and why should we
tell our faith stories. There will be hands-on learning activities, lots of digging into Scripture,
discussions and more.
