New Years resolutions are hard to keep, but now that February is here, we’ve got big plans for helping teenagers develop a few habits that will help them grow closer to God than ever before. Starting this week!

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

ADD THE DATE: Spring Weekend
Next month, we’re hosting a weekend event designed to help students connect with God and with their small group. Get the details on our website!

ADD THE DATE: Volunteer Meeting
As we dive into the second semester of this school year, it’s time for another volunteer meeting! We hope to see you there as we learn about ADD THE TOPIC together.

ADD THE DATES: Mission Experience
This summer, we’re taking teenagers on a mission experience! Make sure the dates are on your calendar and you’ve let us know if you’d like to attend.

MAKE IT A HABIT: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON SPIRITUAL HABITS
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: Time with God grows your relationship with God.

SERIES OVERVIEW:
If you’re an adult, the idea of spiritual habits is probably pretty familiar to you. Spiritual disciplines, quiet time, devotions — whatever you call it, you’ve probably established at least a few rhythms that help you grow spiritually. (Or, at least, you’re working on it.) The teenagers in your ministry, on the other hand, might need a little help from you to figure out how, exactly, to grow spiritually. So in this 4-week series, you’ll help your students discover four habits that can help them grow spiritually. The four habits we’ll cover are Spending Time with God, Spending Time with Others, Sharing Your Story, and Using Your Gifts. By introducing these habits to your students now, you’ll help set them up for a lifetime of spiritual growth.
