It’s nearly Easter! We’re about to begin a special two-week Easter seres, so here’s what you need to know.
Here’s a few things coming up in our ministry . . .
ADD THE DATES: Parent Events
This April, we’re hosting two events for teenagers and the parents (or parent figures) who love them. If you’re not already attending the event with your kid, we’d love your help. Let us know if you can serve!
ADD THE DATE: Volunteer Meeting
Thank you all for coming to last month’s volunteer meeting! We have our final meeting of the year coming up in April, so make sure it’s on your calendar! We hope to see you there as we learn about ADD THE TOPIC together.
ADD THE DATES: Summer Camp
This summer, we’re taking teenagers to summer camp! Make sure the dates are on your calendar and you’ve let us know if you’d like to attend.
MORE LIFE: A 2-WEEK SERIES ON EASTER
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: This life can leave you empty.
Sometimes, life can be pretty brutal. Just when we think it will leave us happy and satisfied, it ends up leaving us feeling emptier than ever. Just imagine the emptiness Jesus’ followers must have felt when, after all His promises of what was to come, Jesus was crucified. In this 2-week series, you’ll help students see that, while life here on earth can often leave us empty, Jesus came to give us a new kind of life — more life, in fact, than we could ever imagine.
If you want to help a teenager grow spiritually, sometimes you’ll need to do things that seem counterintuitive. This is especially true when teenagers are wrestling with uncertainty. You may want to give more answers; instead, ask more questions. You may want to resolve a tough question immediately; instead, you may need to let teenagers live with their unresolved tension until they’re truly ready for that resolution. This week, as we dwell in the reality of Good Friday, you may feel some of that tension. (But spoiler alert: Sunday’s coming.)
Choose a volunteer to celebrate this week. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
We were just wondering . . . How do you celebrate Easter with your teenagers?
