Hi, Small Group Leaders! We’re finishing up our Haters series this week by talking to our students about the people they’re most tempted to hate on: themselves. As we do, students will learn that they can find freedom in Christ to stop judging themselves. Thank you for showing up every week! I appreciate you.


More often than not, we hate on ourselves more than we hate on anyone else, and when we make mistakes, when we fail, and when we don’t measure up, the self-hate just gets worse. Thankfully, God offers us a different way forward. This week, as we learn to embrace the grace He offers us in all situations, we’ll realize we can put a stop to the hate.
