Series: Trending – Suicide (Feb. 10)

In this one-week message, we’ll be talking to students about finding hope and support when they or someone they care about is impacted by suicide or suicidal thoughts.


This is a very personal and potentially sensitive week for our middle schoolers. In our small groups we want to avoid letting our few dive too deep into sharing heavy personal things within their groups. Instead, we want our leaders to be available to talk more in depth in a private, safer space after service if needed. Remember as well that middle schoolers are not known for being able to self-regulate their feelings. Because of this, we may have students who experience a strong emotional response to the message. They may not know what they’re feeling or why they’re feeling it, but they most definitely will be feeling something. We will have a plan in place with our leaders for how to help a student who may be crying and needs to step out of the room with an adult to process immediately or to take a minute to catch their breath.

Parents

Our desire as a ministry is for discipleship to take place at home and support parents in their role as the primary spiritual influence in a young person’s life.  In order to do this we wanted to provide you with some follow up material to use at home to continue the discussion and have a better understanding of what we’ve been talking about during msINCLINE.
