Team, I am so excited to tell you this story. TELL YOUR VOLUNTEERS ABOUT A RECENT WIN IN YOUR MINISTRY.

Here’s a few things coming up in our ministry . . .

ADD THE DATE: Fall Retreat 
We’re kicking off this school year with a weekend retreat designed to help students connect with God and with their small group. Get the details on our website!

ADD THE DATE: Parent and Small Group Leader Breakfast
Next month, we’re creating an opportunity for you to connect with the parents of the students in your small group so you can better love, lead, and influence teenagers together. Don’t miss it! Get all the details on our website.

ADD THE DATE: Volunteer Meeting
Now that the school year is off to a great start, it’s time to learn and grow together at our very first volunteer meeting of the year! We hope to see you there as we learn about ADD THE TOPIC together.

HOW TO BE AWESOME: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON WISDOM
WEEK 2 BIG IDEA: If you want to be awesome at life, follow your Guide.

SERIES OVERVIEW:
We all want to be awesome at life. For some of us, being awesome means getting famous, making money, or having power. God’s version of living an awesome life, though, is a little different. With God, an awesome life is a life of wisdom. In this 4-week series, you’ll help teenagers discover that the secret to living an awesome life is making wise choices. It’s about choosing the narrow road, following God’s lead, surrounding ourselves with wise people, and inviting others to do the same.

DOWNLOAD THIS WEEK’S CONVERSATION GUIDE

Last week we told you about an organization we love called Axis Ideas. This month, they’re hosting a FREE online conference for parents of teenagers (but even if you’re not a parent, we still think you’re going to love it), featuring some pretty incredible thinkers and faith leaders. Check it out! It’s free!

Choose a volunteer to celebrate this week. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
