Finding and Keeping Lasting Friendships

In a culture where friendship is measured in follows, likes, mentions, and snaps, and being “unfriended” is a very real worry, girls often think they need to have it all together – the pressure for perfection creates distance instead of real, authentic relationships.

We Saved You A Seat takes girls deeper into Scripture to learn how to create, invest in, and keep up lifelong friendships. Jesus is the role model for our friendships and Scripture is the foundation. We don’t wait until we’re all put together to come to Jesus. Over the course of seven weeks, girls will learn that true friendship takes…

  • showing up and being willing to go first
  • being vulnerable and knowing that real friendship is messy
  • encouraging rather than competing
  • the desire for connection over perfection
  • forgiveness
  • knowing when to walk away
  • action

While girls may talk about the follows and likes and the perfect promposal, what they really want is true, lasting, unconditional friendship. They want connection. They want to know that someone saved them a seat.
