Happy summertime, parents! We hope your family is having a blast and enjoying the calm before a new school year.

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

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: SUMMER CAMP & MISSION EXPERIENCE MEETINGS
Before you let us take your kid to summer camp or on a mission experience, you probably have some questions. Be sure to stop by our parent meetings so you can get all the answers!

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: OPEN HOUSE
If you’re new to our ministry (or you just want to hang out with us for a few minutes) we’d love to see you at our Open House in August so we can introduce you and your teenager to our youth ministry! Get the details on our website.

HEAR ME ROAR: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON EVANGELISM

SERIES OVERVIEW:
We’ve all heard it before. “Be bold!” “Don’t be ashamed!” “Take a stand!” But let’s be honest. Being bold about your faith can be awkward, intimidating, or just plain terrifying—especially when you’re a teenager who’s already feeling pressure to be liked and accepted. In this 4-week series, you’ll acknowledge that challenge, then encourage students to grow in their boldness as you walk through a few key stories in the book of Daniel. These four stories help us see that being bold begins when we fill up on God, surround ourselves with like-minded people, choose peace even when it’s difficult, and practice boldness consistently.

As you get ready to usher your teenager into a new school year, here’s a question: is your lifestyle something you want your teenager to mirror? Chances are, you have a vice or two that you’d prefer your teenager didn’t duplicate. If that’s the case, now is the perfect chance to create some new rhythms and habits in your own life. You can live the kind of life you want your teenager to mirror.

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Parent Tip Video #12 from your Parents section.

Summer is no time for your teenager to be glued to their devices. With a new tool called Circle, with Disney, you can manage your teenagers’ time and content on their devices so they can spend more time in the sunshine. Check it out!
