4 Week Back to School Series
This product, like all our resources, is a download item.
Junior high students are influenced by the world around them. Parents, teachers, coaches, friends, family, the media, etc. have a major influence on young people. Students are often unaware of how those influences affect them. They’re unaware how the world around them is shaping, molding and affecting how they think, believe and act.
The heart of the series is Isaiah 64:8 – “Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”
The biggest influence in our lives should be God, our Father. Junior high students will learn that God designed them to be like clay, allowing Him to influence, mold, and shape them to be more like Jesus in the way they think, believe, and act.
