So I have been thinking of doing a class on who we are in Christ. I am teaching the young adult class (age 14-18 at church) and I realized that most of them have been in church of some form, but really don't know who they are in Christ Jesus. So I thought it was time for them to know who God has called them to be in Him... I can say that I wish I knew this when i was in high school and even Jr high, so let me know what you think and if I've missed any thing please let me know... what I'll do is, each week post what I'll be teaching for that week and see what ya think and if I need to add anything... I've been teaching Sunday school for a log time, but I think God is really wanting me to go back to the basic's. thanks for your feed back.

Wow! I will love to have this refresher course . Though I know about who I am in the Lord, I have by now forgotten about them.
Will love to read all your future blogs on this subject, Sister Hispianolady :wink:
