Trials & Steadfastness
How do you grow in faith? When you go through trials!
This was a lesson the middle schoolers learned last Friday as we heard a message on James 1 by Misha. The message discussed how going through trials produces steadfastness, and that steadfastness leads to joy in the end because you come out with deeper faith and understanding. Our middle schoolers were challenged not to avoid the trials in life, but embrace them.
Before the message, the middle schoolers got to try this out by going through an obstacle course! The Element staff put together an obstacle course in the gym to teach the students that life is full of trials that we get to go through together. It was a fun and athletic Friday for sure!
