Dear Parents of Middle School Students (7th and 8th Grade).
We will have regular discipleship classes this Sunday, January 24 at 9:15 a.m. ONLY.   We will not have class at 12:15 p.m.  Here is the Zoom link for those of you who need to participate remotely.  Note that we will offer Zoom at 9:15 only.
Sun Jan 24, 2021 9:15am – 10:45am MST
Check you email for the Zoom links.
We have been talking about the three arguments for the existence of God (pasted below).  The middle school students had a lot to say at this session!  Have your student explain them to you.  Then share with each other why each of you believe in God and discuss the questions on the parent sheet.
