Dear God Series

It is a new year at GSM and we are running hard after God. This weekend we kicked off our new series called Dear God. During a previous series we wrote letters to God asking him one question. All the letters were anonymous so students had the freedom to has anything they wanted. The staff team took those letters and found the common questions and themes. Using those themes they created this series where we'll take a look at what God has to say about the questions.

I've been reading some of the questions as I prepare for this week's message. (I am praying big time that God will speak clearly through me next week!) They are incredible! And I love that our staff decided to do this series. Our students are asking questions and we are going to go to the Scripture and see what God has to say about those questions. Here are some reasons I love this series
  • Students determine the topics and they are relevant to them.
  • We meet students where they are.
  • We look to God for answers, not our own ideas.
  • We tackle tough questions that may be keeping student from taking their next steps.
  • We show students asking questions isn't a bad thing.
If you are a middle school or high school student you need to come check this series out. I have a feeling you won't regret it.
