YFI is our Tuesday night youth gathering. Students will connect and have fun with each other and their small group leaders. We do this because fun breaks down walls and makes relationships go deeper. They also spend time learning and every message is written with a middle schooler or high schooler in mind—how their brains work, how they learn, what their biggest needs and most pressing questions are, and, most importantly, what they need to know right now about the God who made them, who loves them, and has a plan for them. And because we’re convinced that some truths are best processed in the context of relationships, and that students need adults (besides their parents) who can come alongside them to influence and care for them, small groups, for us, are the point. They’re the thing, in our opinion, that everything else in our program leads to.
We all have a tendency to hate on others. We can be pretty quick to judge. In a lot of ways, we thrive on it! Because we live in a world that loves to hate. The problem? We were made for a different kind of world—a world designed for love, not hate. But loving others isn’t always easy. How do we love people who drive us crazy? How do we tell someone the truth without sounding like a hater? How do we love the unlovable? In this series, we’ll explore what it looks like to lead with love rather than judgement and make a move toward landing on the right side of the line between love and hate.
These reading plans give students a deeper look at the teaching series from our YFI meetings. They can set up the plan using the YouVersion Bible App on their phone to read 5 daily readings for each week of the lesson series.
Hang tight while we look up scheduled events...
