During the months of March and April we are in a series called “Obstacle Course”. This series is aimed at helping our students navigate relationships. In the Ten Commandments we see four commandments that pertain to our relationship with God and six to our relationships with others. We know that relationships are a big deal in all our lives, so we are going to take two months to discuss them. During the month of March we will look at our relationships with our friends, siblings and parents. We hope that our students will understand the importance of who you allow close into your life. We also hope they will understand their natural rebellion against authority and learn to respect as God calls us.
During the month of April we will look at romantic relationships. As anyone knows, the middle school and high school years are when boys start noticing girls and girls start noticing boys. When you compound that with a culture that is obsessed with love and romance it leaves us with an urgency to keep the truth of what God has to say before them.
