Grade 7-8 Mark 1
The Older Middle Schoolers spent some time getting to know one another and then discussed the launch of their semester long bible study of the gospel of Mark. Each week they will look at a new passage through the lens of these questions. They looked at Mark 1:
1. What does this passage teach me about Jesus?
2. What does this passage teach me about following Jesus?
3. So what? (What difference does this make for my life?)
