Middle School Service
Welcome back! This is week 2 of our online Middle School Service. I hope last week you had fun and that you were still were able to focus on learning about God's design for technology and sex. This week we mixed up the order a little bit AND added another game. We understand that this topic can be a little difficult so we wanted to add a little more interaction.
Parents, if you didn't last week, please review the resources below before starting this service. These tools are important to use with this teaching series. Once you have done that, start the service with your middle school student(s) and family and let the fun begin!

SERViCE STARTS HERE!
Game Time 1
To kick off the service, let's start with a game! There is no point to this game, but that doesn't make it any less fun! Your job is to identify if the picture shown is a picture of mashed potatoes or ice cream. You'll be surprised how difficult this is! Advance the slide, guess the picture, then advance again to find the answer. Before revealing the answer have all members of your family guess and then take score who got the answer right. The family member with the most correct answers wins!
Leave a comment below of the first name of the person who won and their score!
This guy just can't get his verses in the right context and now he has misapplied a verse from James and thinks it applies to the Coronavirus. (P.S. It doesn't!)
Take some time to watch the video and laugh as he and Andy work through this tough situation. (But please still wash your hands!)

IT'S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS! I have a feeling that at some point in your life you have heard those words. Whether you said them yourself or you've been told it by someone else you know you've found a sore spot when they are expressed. Today we are learning about the power of confession and how keeping sin in the dark keeps us from God. One of the most prevalent darknesses today is pornography. Pornography is easy to hide, yet it should be other people's business if it is in your life. God already knows everything so let His light in your life. Watch the video below to learn more about how God is light in our darkness.
Lesson Discussion Questions
We hope that even though it may be tough that confession will happen now. Use the discussion questions to talk about what you learned and maybe bring some things to God's light that have been hidden. Take advantage of the prayer experience at the bottom of the page.
Now would also be a good time to use the Sexual Integrity Guide at the top of this page.
If you (the parent) aren't a part of our Facebook Group, you should! We will be posting resources weekly that can help you during this time of COVID-19 as well as further resources for your discussion of sex. Click the button to go to the group now.
If you started the devotionals last week, that's awesome! Here you can go through this week's devotionals.
If you missed last week's devotional click here to find them.
These are perfect for the morning or right before bed to go over as a family.
Game Time 2
Last week we only provided one game, but this week you get 2! Below you will find a game of "Would You Rather". Go through the slides and have each family member share which situation they would rather be in or which choice they would make. You have to choose one or the other! This is the "Disaster Edition" because we are currently living through a bit of a disaster. Enjoy!
Do you have any ideas or feedback on how to make this experience better? If so, please leave a comment below to let us know!
see you next week!
Again, we hope this experience was great! If you had a great time. be sure to post in our Middle School Parent Facebook Group to let others know. We hope to see you again next week.
