Earlier this semester Jack Archer, Brookside's Director of Middle School Ministries (called "Tribe"), offered a sort of "Tribe Institute" where he gave Middle Schoolers the chance to "Dig Deep" in a certain area of discipleship. He did great!! Listen to what Jack has to say about it:
"In Tribe, we decided to do a Middle School version of the Institute. We wanted to provide a learning opportunity for students who are ready to be stretched and dig into any given topic a little more. In October, our topic was Understanding the Storyline of the Bible. It was fun to take students through the entirety of Scripture at a glance, and several students commented on how helpful it was to get a big picture snapshot of the Bible. Those students can now approach God's Word with more confidence now that they have a better understanding of the context of what they're reading. In December we'll be tackling the topic of World Religions & the Uniqueness of Christianity!"
And then just last weekend, 25 Middle Schoolers attended the December course that Jack offered for Tribe students, "The Uniqueness of Christianity."
I love to hear about this stuff going on, and am excited to see how these students - equipped with a strong foundation in these areas - will continue to grow themselves and be used by God!
