WHAT IS THE BLENDER ALL ABOUT? In 1 Corinthians 12:24-27, Paul tells the church that "God has BLENDED together the body... Now you are Christ’s body, and each of you is a member of it." We know that students each have different gifts, strengths, frustrations, and joys. This is the reason that we are called the Blender. We are designed to be a place where students in 6th-12th grade do four things: live life together, learn about Jesus, encounter God, and serve others.

Sign up for meals

At the Blender, we believe that sharing a meal together each week is foundational for building relationships. Follow this link http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090c4ca9a829aa8-sunday to Sign-Up-Genius to sign up and to get meal ideas. Remember that our campus is a peanut free environment and don’t forget a vegetarian and gluten free snack.


Your time and offering to the students and leaders is greatly appreciated! If you have any questions, you can reach Brian at brian@gracetucson.org

Whats This Weeks Chat All About? (Jan 21st)


Hello!!!


I hope you are all well! Here is a look at what we are covering this week


This week, we are continuing to learn to value the things that Jesus values. Our BIG IDEA is that JESUS VALUES LOVE. Being in Middle School or High School today has similar challenges to when we were all in school, but there are also unique differences too. Social media and almost constant access to our phones has opened up new forms of bullying and harassment. It is easy to be friends with the people we like and who are nice to us, but what about the people who are mean to us? What kind of attitude does Jesus expect us to display towards them? Our main verse fore the week will be Matthew 5:43-44.  


Some questions to get the conversation going at home: 

  1. What is one of your pet peeves… what gets under your skin?

2. What is your definition of bullying?

3. How hard is it to love someone that is bullying you? Why?

4. What are some things that could happen as a result of being bullied?

5. Why is it important to forgive and love your enemies?


Do not be afraid to share your own experiences with bullying or loving people who make it hard to love. Be open and honest with your student about times when you have struggled here.
