Does anyone get me? Does God know I’m lonely? What can I do if I feel all alone? These are questions that many high school students are asking these days. In this session we will explore what leads to feelings of loneliness. We will also uncover how loneliness is not forever. Together, we will talk about the pain of feeling lonely and discover the hope we have in Jesus who is faithful to His promise to never leave us.
