Middle school is tough, and it’s even more difficult when we’re not honest and real with those around us. It’s so easy to care about what people think of us, but sometimes we care so much that we put on an act. Unfortunately, when we do so we rob those around us the chance to know who we really are. Over the next two weeks, we will challenge students to make two commitments: to be real and to accept others when they are real. Jesus wants us to experience real, lasting relationships that help us become the best versions of ourselves. We’ll discover how to do this in our series, Real Talk.
Week 1 Bottom Line: To have real relationships, you have to be real.
Week 2 Bottom Line: Small groups require real people accepting real people.
