Inspiring students to discover a faith of their own

Middle school can be tough, but your student doesn’t have to face it alone.

We miss being together, but that doesn’t mean we have to miss out on Transit!

Each week, there will be a video message available on this page. You can view it at your regular Transit time.

After watching the video, you can connect with your small group in a “virtual small group room” to talk about it. The links to those small group rooms will be emailed to parents from your small group leader.

If you're not in a group, no problem!

1. Ask your parent for permission (they'll have to fill out this form).
2. Email us.
3. We'll connect you to a group!

IN THIS TOGETHER

Middle school is a time of discovery. One such discovery may be that your family is a little different than everybody else’s seem to be. Maybe your parents are more strict, your younger sibling is more annoying, or your house is more of a mess. Whatever the differences are, at some point in your life, you will realize that there is something about your family you don’t like—that you wish was more like someone else’s family. You’ve probably wondered why your family can’t seem to get it together. The simple answer is because every person is human, and every human is imperfect. So perhaps step one toward improving our family relationships is simply understanding that our families are not perfect . . . and that’s okay.

How to face an unknown future

BE ON THE LOOKOUT

There is some comfort in knowing that others are going through the same thing you are. Everyone in our world is dealing with the unknown of a pandemic, and each day seems to bring new details about what changes are coming. But we are not the first ones to face an unknown future.

In the Old Testament, we find the Israelites dealing with the unknown of leaving Egypt and going toward the promised land. Two different generations experienced the process of trying to move into that land, but their reactions to the unsettled future in front of them couldn’t have been more different.

REMEMBER

From mountain top moments like camp, to difficult moments like social distancing; we forget the ways God has shown up very quickly. However, we may learn from Joshua, when faced with doubts about our future we can turn and remember what God has done in our past.

Each of you is to take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, to serve as a sign among you. In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord. When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever.”
Joshua 4:5–7

HE'S GOT A PLAN

Are things getting better or worse? How do you feel about the news these days?

Through looking at Joshua’s story we learn that perspective in difficult times changes everything. God has a plan for our future and that plan is the best place to be.

"They said to Joshua, 'The Lord has surely given the whole land into our hands; all the people are melting in fear because of us.' "
Joshua 2:24

NOT ALONE

Joshua is given the command to “be strong and courageous” in a time of great uncertainty. Especially when dealing with the unknown – like a pandemic – these truths take on new importance in our lives.

You can have strength knowing the Lord is with you wherever you go and no matter your circumstance.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid;
do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9
