For many, middle school and high school can feel like time in the wilderness. So much is changing, there is a lot to learn and keep up with, and we are trying to figure out how to fit in with the crowd and yet still be ourselves. In the midst of this wilderness journey, God does something extraordinary. God calls us, names us, and gives us purpose. DUMC is blessed to be filled with youth who are discovering this call to discipleship and beginning to live out their mission of being leaders in the church and servants of Christ in the world. Today we celebrate the gifts that God has given them and give thanks to the One who brings us out of the wilderness and into the land of promise. discussion and a personal workbook. Cost is $15.
