CURRENT MESSAGE SERIES

THROUGH THE DARKNESS

Have you ever turned on the news only to wish you hadn’t? Or answered a phone call only to wish you could un-hear the news on the other end? Whether it’s a global disaster, a school shooting, our parents’ divorce, or the death of a friend, there’s nothing fun about tragedy. It can make us feel like we’re walking around in total darkness—where nothing seems quite right and there are more questions than answers. What do we say? What do we do? What happens next? And, how long will it take before things go back to normal? At some point, we‘ll all find ourselves in or around a tragedy, but being there doesn’t mean we have to stay there. There’s a way through the darkness to the other side, to healing— and we’ll get there by trusting the One who is leading us.

PARENT CUE

In addition to the small group guides we have a great resource designed to help you connect the dots at home. If you would like to take the conversation they have at church and continue it throughout the week this will help you get started. Click on the series icon to open each parent cue.
