I have been a junior high leader at our church for a little over one year. It has been such an awesome experience as I get to mentor and enjoy life with about ten 8th grade girls. I never expected my time with them to be something I value so much or something that I look forward to. Every week I am refreshed and renewed by these kids. These are two hours during my week where I can play goofy games, talk like a teenager (LOL!) and act crazy-like. I also have developed a deep love of texting. In fact, I probably send about 2000 texts a month (and mostly to my junior highers!)
This video introduces the "mean girls" and also the dorky boys and our interactions with each other. In our small groups, we talk about how to meet the emotional, spiritual and physical needs of others.
In this video, we talk about how we can change. Do we change to fit into our group of friends? Is this good or bad? How should we change?
