The teenage years are the first time in a kid’s life when they start asking questions like, “Why do I believe what I believe?” So this month, we want to help you have better conversations with your kid about faith . . . and doubt.
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.
UNBELIEVABLE: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON DOUBT
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: Jesus can handle your questions.
We may not like to admit it, but we all have questions and doubts about our faith. In this series, you’ll help teenagers see that our doubts and questions don’t have to destroy our faith, but refusing to talk about them might. For the next four weeks, you’ll encourage teenagers to wrestle with their doubts by voicing their questions, understanding their perspective is limited, remembering how Jesus has transformed their lives, and considering why they followed Jesus in the first place.
Are you still not sure how Snapchat works? Has your teenager been saying words you can’t quite define? Do you want to know the scoop on that new movie your kid is begging you to see? Check out the Culture Translator Podcast from our friends at Axis Ideas. It’s designed with parents of teenagers in mind! You can even sign up for their weekly Culture Translator emails.
March is a pretty special month. Why? Well, because a NAME and NAME were born this month! Tell them happy birthday when you see them.
