This is going to be a big month for families in our ministry! Not only are we starting a new series on family, but we also have some events for teenagers and their parents (or parent figures) coming up, too!

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

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: PARENT EVENT
This month, we’re hosting an event for teenage guys and the moms (or mother figures) who love them. We’d love to see you there!

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: SQUAD WARS OPENING CEREMONY
Students will be competing all summer long in a series of team games, but we’re going to kick things off with a night of fun and food. Get the details on our website!

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: END-OF-THE-YEAR PARTY
Let’s celebrate the end of an incredible school year with a little fun, food, and friends! Come hang with us. There will be games, presents, and a pretty incredible recap of the year of ministry we’ve had together.

FAMILY FEUD: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON FAMILY
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: BE PATIENT WITH YOUR FAMILY LIKE GOD IS PATIENT WITH YOU

SERIES OVERVIEW:
Every family feuds. Whether the latest feud is about curfews, chores, harsh words, someone’s attitude, or someone else’s questionable choices, everyone knows what it’s like to experience conflict with a family member. Although some families may have more struggles or conflict than others, every family can learn how to fight more fairly. In this 4-week series, you’ll challenge students to let their relationship with God transform their relationships with their family members as they seek to be more patient, forgive more often, be more honoring, and show love more freely.

Toward the end of a busy school year, it can be easy to feel like you’re not really making a difference. But here’s our tip for you this month: don’t believe the lie. You are making an impact both now and for eternity. Keep going! You can do this!

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Volunteer Tip Video #10 from your Volunteer section.

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!

We know you’re learning a lot about teenagers while you lead them, so we’d love to learn alongside you. What’s one thing you’ve learned this year that every parent of teenagers should know?
