We’ve got a brand new series starting this week! Can’t wait to dive into this conversation with you and our students.

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 girls and the dads (or father figures) who love them. We’d love to see you there!

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.

MORE THAN A HASHTAG: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON JUSTICE
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: DO SOMETHING

SERIES OVERVIEW:  Our world is not as it should be. There is pain, evil, and injustice all around us. In the age of social media, it is easier than ever to stay informed about all sorts of injustices, but is sending a tweet, posting a selfie, or sharing a video about an inspiring cause really all it takes to make a difference in the world? Or is it possible that justice is about something much more than a hashtag? In this 4-week series, you’ll challenge students to not just post about the injustices around them, but to actually do something about them by loving mercy, acting justly, and walking humbly.

Now that summer’s here, you might notice it’s more difficult than usual to hold a sustained, productive conversation with teenager, but here’s a tip to remember: sometimes, it’s okay to follow a rabbit trail. Sometimes that meandering story or off-the-cuff comment is exactly what you need to get the conversation flowing in a new way.

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Volunteer Tip Video #11 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 consider our volunteer leaders to be the best link we have between our church and your family. So here’s a question: How often did you connect with your teenager’s parents this school year? Hit Reply and let us know!
