This 4-week teaching series helps students remain focused on Jesus and stay aware of His presence in their lives.
Includes four youth group lessons on abiding in Christ.
Abide is a word students usually only hear at church, which means to "stay with", "stick around", "remain", or "follow".
Our hope is that this series helps students understand that abiding in Christ leads to the best life possible! The goal is for them to walk away with a clear understanding of the what, why and how of abiding in the love of Jesus.
