A 4-week series showing students how Jesus teaches a better way of life that often seems opposite to our culture.
Culture – or the way of doing things – is something we all experience, and it’s unique to where we live, the people we’re around, and what’s popular at any given time.
In this series we take a look at what Jesus had to say about culture and how He wants us to be counter-cultural. That is, He wants us reject anything our culture tells us to do that is against what He teaches.
