The junior-high years are a confusing jumble of feelings that many kids don't know how to handle. Between the physical and hormonal changes that happen almost overnight and increasingly complicated relationships with friends and family, students often feel like they'll never sort it all out! With Uncommon Jr. High: Emotions & Dating, youth leaders can help kids respond to their emotions in healthy, biblical ways. They'll also find everything they need to guide students as they make decisions about dating relationships based on God's plan for their lives. Through 12 flexible sessions of Bible study, adaptable for groups of any size, junior high students will discover that God wants to be their first love, the One they honor before anyone else. And the high-octane, kidfriendly activities help students engage biblical truth with their hearts, minds and fidgety bodies, too!
