Boss: A Series on Authority
Raise your hand if you’ve ever wanted to scream, “You’re not the boss of me!” (You can also raise your hand if you have, in fact, actually screamed it.) Especially when we’re teenagers, we tend to push back on the people, places, and things that control and hold authority over us. But here’s the catch: whether we admit it or not, we’ve all given someone (or something) control of our lives. In this 4-week series, we will see what we can do to defeat the things that distract us and shift our attention to the things that matter.
Summit and Chosen: Feb 10th with Adoration
