We know ministering to teenagers can be difficult, but there is no one we’d rather have leading these conversations than you. Thank you for giving the teenagers in our ministry so much time, understanding, and compassion.

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

MEANT TO BE: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON THE BIBLE
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: THE BIBLE IS AN INVITATION

SERIES OVERVIEW:
The Bible. We all know reading it is important (or at least that’s what we’ve been told), but if we’re being honest, we probably don’t give it the time or attention we know we should. Sometimes we avoid Scripture because it seems boring or irrelevant. Other times we avoid it because it’s too time-consuming, inconvenient, or maybe even convicting. So how do we change that? In this 4-week series, you’ll encourage students to both see and engage with the Bible in a new way as you help them discover that the Bible is a love letter, a guide, an invitation, and something that’s meant to be lived (not just read).

Here’s something to consider (and be encouraged by!) this week: “Within every hopeless situation and every seemingly hopeless person lies the possibility of transformation.” — Archbishop Desmond Tutu

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
