What is the landing?
The Landing is a new, action-packed Youth Program for Middle and High School students that will offer tools to students who want to live their lives in a healthy way and overcome hurts, hang-ups, and habits. The weekly program is based on the Beatitudes where Jesus laid out principles for happiness in The Sermon on the Mount.
The Landing can help foster hope, truth, and joy as teenagers embark on an exciting journey of engaging videos, meaningful experiences, vibrant worship, and great conversation as they develop true friendships with other teens. Students will learn the tools to face life’s hurts, hang-ups, and habits in a new and healthy, effective way!
A HURT is an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior or to a disturbing situation. (abandonment, rejection, abuse, codependency, divorce, relationship issues, etc.)
A HABIT is an addiction to someone or something. (relationships, electronics, food, shopping, smoking, alcohol, drugs, etc.)
HANG-UPS are negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversity. (anger, depression, isolation, fear, unforgiveness, etc.)
