As another school year comes to a close so does an 8thgrade class as they move forward to the high school ministry. As much as this saddens me, it also gives me assurance knowing that they will be going into good hands.  One thing that I really emphasized during the past two years of my position as the Jr. High Youth Pastor was that one must always bring the word of God with them to church.

 

I use the example of a running athlete showing up to the track without their shoes. You could still run, but it might impair you, blister your feet, or even cause you to stop running altogether. In the same way I like to challenge those who are part of the Kingdom Culture Ministry to bring their Bibles with them to service. They’ll always have the opportunity to see what they get to eat, but never really taste it for themselves without the Bible. After two years of giving this type of pep talk to our kids, I felt the challenge to make sure our 8th grade students had the opportunity to get a deeper look at the word of God and an introduction to more theological understanding outside of my 45 minute sermon before graduating. Therefore, we piloted a class called Christian Foundations.

 

In this class the students who voluntarily came studied Creation, Christology, Sin, Grace and Salvation for a month for up to 2 hour sessions at a time. Because our students are on the younger side, I didn’t think that they would go too deep in their responses during our final exam. But to my surprise, some of their responses to questions left me speechless, encouraged and challenged.

 

 One question was, “Who is Jesus to you?” and the student answered, “Jesus is the bread of life because He would never let us starve”. Another question was, “why was it so important for Jesus to be the ultimate sacrifice?” the student answered, “there is no blood that would satisfy God unless it was one of pure grace. Jesus is pure grace.” Lastly, “what was the biggest take away from this class?”, another student responded, “I’m able to see how Jesus was both holy and human. Before I thought of him as just a person in a story but now I have a better understanding of my sin and how salvation is more than just a belief or experience.”

 

Through this class I was able to see the light bulb go off in many of their minds, not only their answers but their questions have left me in awe many times. I am so proud of our 8th grade class. They’re truly the leader’s of our ministries, the older brothers and sisters that the 6th-7thgraders look up to and I could not be more happy for them as they complete another milestone in their life.

 

Please continue to pray for these ones as they complete their time in middle school and on to bigger and greater giftings in their lives through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
