WHO IS GOD? Is God really real? This study will help young people come to an understanding of their personal identity and lets them know that identity comes from God! Is God really my Father? It’s one thing to think of God as the Creator, it’s another to call him our Father especially when so many of us have distorted ideas of what a father is. Is Jesus really Divine? God in the flesh. This study will explore the claims of Jesus in the Bible and push to a decisive answer. Was he a liar, or the Lord? Is the Holy Spirit really a Person? In this study, we’ll look closely at the real Holy Spirit—a Person as real as the Father and the Son—with whom we are meant to have a relationship. But what does that relationship look like, and what does it mean in a teen’s journey as a disciple? 8-week program and then a Christmas play along with scriptures study games and activity. Program start on September 20. Location: Our Lady of Canada Catholic church. Time: 5-7 pm. Ages 14years to 18years. To sign up please email or call 705-968-0822. God Bless.
