Before High Schoolers leave our ministry we want them to know these 3 truths:
Love God.
Love People.
Serve the World.

What we are talking about

Series Videos

Sometimes knowing what to do is easy. When your car is running out of gas, you get gas. When you hear that Kanye song, you sing along. When you see something funny, you post it on Snapchat. But other times, knowing what to do isn’t as simple. Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we just don’t know what to do. When we don’t know what next step to take, why we’re experiencing what we’re experiencing, or how to change our circumstances for the better, we get overwhelmed, frustrated, and often, just ready to give up altogether. In this series, we’re going to look at the life of a guy in the Bible who often found himself in situations where he just didn’t know what to do: Joseph. And as we look as his life, we’ll learn that there is actually a lot we can do when we don’t know what to do.

Bottom Line

When you don’t know what to do, do the next right thing.

3. What are some things that keep us from doing the right thing?
4. How can doing the next right thing cost you something?
5. Why should we care about “doing the right thing”?
6. How does choosing to do the right thing affect the people around you?
7. By doing the right thing, Joseph proved himself to be a person with integrity. What does it look like to be a person with integrity in high school?

Small Groups

The ultimate goal of what we do in middle school is to get students into a small group led by adults to help give your student another trusted adult voice in their life. An adult that is going say the same things that you are saying about faith. We feel this is the best avenue for students to take steps to love God, love people, and serve the world.
