We are turning the corner and are headed towards spring! Can we get an Amen?! There is a fresh season on the horizon and we are excited to see students leading the way, diving deep and soaking up all that God has for them. We are seeing a new hunger in students and are honored to walk alongside them as they discover new ways to activate their faith. We can't wait to see what God does this month!
APRIL SERIES | VIRTUE SIGNALS
We live in a world that is FULL of “virtue signaling”. This is the idea of publicly expressing your opinions or sentiments in an effort to prove your moral correctness or good character around what is being talked about in society. “Virtue signaling” is a false sense of virtue and character. However, the Bible speaks consistently about what TRUE VIRTUE is. In Matthew chapter 5 verses 3-12, Jesus outlines true aspects of virtue through the Beatitudes. In this series we will be breaking down this passage and helping students understand how biblical virtue differs from worldly virtue. The world is NOT CHANGED by what we say, but rather, by HOW WE LIVE and WHOSE WE ARE.
