Back 2 School Series
For preteens, back to school means dealing with issues like peer pressure, respecting authority, controlling the tongue, forgiveness and reaching out to classmates. They could also use some advice from older students who have struggled with similar issues. The Back 2 School series equips preteens to deal with all those issues! And the last lesson involves high school students from NMC Solid Rock sharing personal experiences of dealing with similar issues.
