WHAT IS THE LANDING?
The Landing is an ongoing program for students . . .based on the Beatitudes, where Jesus related the 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, bonding friendships with others. We know that, in our world today, students struggle, on a daily basis, with things like depression, anxiety, loneliness, isolation, bullying, peer pressure, family conflict, self-worth, etc. The Landing is a place where students can feel welcomed and supported just as they are. The Landing is meant to not only walk with students through hurts, hang-ups and habits, but it is also a resource that can be applied in preventing future struggles.
