Overview


Friends are so important to today's youth, and the good news is that friendship matters to God too! You can teach junior high kids how to have healthy relationships based on respect and acceptance in ways that make sense for their lives. Becoming a stand-strong, clear-headed teen who is fearless of making healthy, positive choices—even if it means going against the flow—is a challenge ... and that's an understatement! Especially for tweens and younger teens, swimming against the tide of peer pressure can be stressful and confusing. Now, with Friends and Peer Pressure, part of the Uncommon Junior High Sudy Series created by youth ministry expert Kara Powell, you can help kids in your group deal with the everyday pressures that come with the territory of growing up.

Twelve sessions of activities and exercises will get teens thinking about how to let God reign in their friendships and how to lead rather than follow. Plus, downloadable student handouts and additional options are available for every session.
