- - KNOWN - -

We are going to be looking at two of life's main questions  “Who am I?” and, “What am I here for?” We live in a culture that values shallow, superficial, and temporary things. Students are told lies all day about what’s important in life, and how to be important in life. This dramatically affects their view of their identity and their value—and though we can’t un-hear the lies of the enemy, we can replace them with the truth from God’s Word.
