MLM Bethel Hill & South Elementary – from Susan and Tammy

In our first few weeks of MLM club, we learned that our lives matter because God made us and loves us. At the first club meeting, J, one of the boys on our 3rd grade yellow team, soberly said, “No, my life doesn’t matter.” In subsequent weeks, he was prone to make similar comments. Yesterday, I was pleased to hear him say something more positive,...

Answers – from Andrew at South

Yesterday I taught my 4th grade boys at South how the Lord is faithful. He makes good promises, and He always keeps them. They head-nodded agreement, but I dug deeper, “If God really never lets you down; if He always does good, then WHY do hard, painful, even terrible things happen in our lives?” After a long pause, Jaden answered, “We don’t always...

MLM The Warehouse – from Shiron Warehouse Director

There is a pretty consistent group of middle and high school students that stops by The Warehouse after school, which makes being relational easy. I’ve been able to form good relationships with these young men. Our relationships are growing daily and my desire is to use the bond and the trust that’s been created. The first order of business for me was...

Conversations – MLM Middle School – from Mark

“I just don’t want to give up control.” Tuesday night middle school club at the warehouse is full of energy and noise. Anytime you get 70 plus middle school students in one place after spending all day at school it is going to be loud. However, during all that noise and fun some quite deep conversations about life take place. I was talking to a middle school...

What’s Happening at Southern Middle School? – from Cristina at MLM SMS

Last school year, I was given permission, or command, if you will, to dive deeper into one MLM ministry site, Southern Middle School. At first I was a little leery of taking charge of this site. It was an overwhelming task to me, which I suppose was just a sign that I would need God to accomplish anything. Not a bad position to be in, huh? Since then, I’ve had...

MLM Equip – from Amy Edlund at Equip

  Our heart at MLM is to see students taught the love of Jesus in the context of loving relationships. Our clubs are conduits for those relationships. At MLM Equip our leaders have a mere 20 minutes a week in club to work on those relationships, so we desire to see our leaders invite students into their everyday lives outside of club. One of our leaders, Mrs....

Questions – From Linda (Volunteer) at Stories Creek

Today was not a lesson day. (I tried) We have a beautiful thinker on our team who comes out with thoughtful statements or questions. “Can’t people do good things without God?” “I don’t think it’s fair that God gets to tell people they are bad.” “Why doesn’t He give us a second chance?” I don’t think...

Faith Stories – from Andrew at RCS

Our small group at RCS has been meeting on Tuesday mornings to share faith stories and accomplish three things. First, we’re learning about ourselves. Do we actually have friendship with God, or just religious activity and a handful of spiritual events? Second, we’re learning to listen. We see that Jesus asked a lot of questions. Listening to others can be a...

God is in Control – from Cristina MLM Middle

This year at Southern Middle, we’ve got a faithful group of students who come to our club that meets on Thursday mornings 7:30-8 in Room 606. We are a mixture, probably about half and half, of students who also come to our Tuesday afternoon Warehouse Club for all middle schools, and students who can’t make it to Tuesday afternoons. We’ve got a great team of...

Read the Answers – from Andrew at South

15 boys opened the booklet I gave them and read a Bible verse from Isaiah 6, “I saw the Lord, sitting upon a throne…holy, holy, holy…the whole earth is full of His glory.” I began to explain by asking if they knew who Isaiah was. One 4th grader piped up, “Isaiah was a prophet who lived about 2,750 years ago.” Wow, I did not expect to get such a...

Building Trust and Friendship- from Andrew at Middle School Warehouse

I sat in the very first middle school small group last week and watched Tim lead a group of boys. Some had been in his group before, while others had only known Tim from a distance. I could see right away how Tim had proven his love over the years and built trust with some of those students.   When Daniel saw I had a camera he jumped up and said, “I need a...
