New Year, New Studies!

Happy New Year! 
 
2019 holds many exciting thing for our 181 Student ministries; Our annul winter retreat, out reach events, Summer mission trips, a backpacking trip, and much, much more!
 
With the new year, we will be starting new studies during our Sunday mornings together.
 
For our Jr. High we will be launching a 12 week study into the book of James. Each week we’ll spend time looking at a section of the book as we wrestle with what it means to be a true disciple of Christ in our every day lives. Each lesson has a short video that highlights some of the key principles in the passage that we are covering. We’ll then spend time in our small groups talking about what we read and what was discussed in the video, looking to apply the principles to our lives personally. Check out the Trailer! 
 
 
For our Sr. High students, we will work through the book of Philippians and dig into what it means to really have the mindset of “To live is Christ, to die is gain.” I will will follow a similar format, watching a teaching video by Matt Chandler then breaking up into small groups to discuss the lesson and our application of the principles. This is a deeper study than we’ve done before, but I am confident that it will be encouraging and challenging for our students.
 
There is a study guide that accompanies this study, and it is only $5 (Checks can be made out to Parma Height Baptist Church).  Here is the trailer.
 
 
This will be a great time of growing together as we grow in our understanding and relationship with Christ!
