Happy August! Can you believe a new school year is already here? You’re probably busy trying to enjoy the last few moments of summer, so we’ll keep this brief so you can get back to the beach.

Here are a few things coming up in our ministry . . .

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 so we can introduce you and your teenager to our youth ministry! Get the details on our website.

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: ALL-NIGHTER
We’re kicking off this school year with an all-night event designed to help your kid connect with their small group, invite friends, have some fun, and hear a little bit about Jesus. Get the details on our website!

Anthem Grow Curriculum
A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT & JOHN ON AUTHORITY

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Have you ever wished you had a little bit more power — or influence — or control? Whether you dream about ruling the world or just wish you could get a little respect once in a while, the desire to be in charge is something we’ve all experienced. But in this 4-week series, we’ll hear about a few kings from the Bible whose stories show us power isn’t always easy to yield. Through their failures and successes, we’ll discover that when you make mistakes, God can help make things right; when you think you know best, be humble instead; when you’re not sure who to listen to, ask God for guidance; and when obedience is difficult, stay close to Jesus. 

We believe that you are amazing and qualified to parent the teenagers that you are raising. That being said, even the greatest superheroes accomplish more when they are working with a team. We too often associate asking for help with weakness, when in reality, asking for help makes you (and everyone around you) better!

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Family Tip Video #1 from your Parents section.

Every teenager needs an adult in their corner who hears them and cheers for them. Thank you for being the type of parent that leverages your position to help teenagers FIND THEIR VOICE. The little things and the little moments matter more than you think!

We’d love to hear how we can better serve you and your family, not just the teenagers in your family. So we’d love it if you’d complete a quick survey so we can learn from you. [If you’re a Grow Your Ministry subscriber, attach or link to the Annual Parent Survey.]
