Have we told you recently how grateful we are that you’ve decided to use your gifts to serve alongside us this year? We know how big of a deal that is. So thank you.

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

ADD THE DATE: The Click, Grab, and Get Hunt 
This month, we’re hosting a night packed with scavenger hunting, prize giveaways, and fun. Let us know if you’ll be there!

ADD THE DATE: Joy to the Neighborhood
In just a few weeks, we’ll be encouraging teenagers to focus on others (instead of themselves) this Christmas with a service project. Get all the details on our website.

ADD THE DATE: Volunteer Christmas Party
Let’s celebrate the holidays with a little fun, food, and friends! Come hang with us. There will be games, presents, and zero meetings.

WHO AM I?: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON IDENTITY
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: Knowing yourself is connected to knowing your Creator.

SERIES OVERVIEW:
We all want to know who we are — what we’re good at, what we’re not-so-good at, what makes us unique, and why we matter. Unfortunately, we spend a lot of time (especially as teenagers) creating identities based on all the wrong things. In this 4-week series, you’ll help teenagers discover that they will never fully understand who they were created to be apart from the God who created them. He’s a God who knows us, who gives us a place to belong, who helps us understand ourselves, and who helps us become everything He has created us to be.

As we talk about uniqueness this month, we wanted to share the story of 16-year-old Rosie. She’s creative, bold, and also autistic. She challenges us with this question: “Instead of punishing anything that strays from normal, why not celebrate uniqueness and cheer every time someone unleashes their imagination?” Click here to watch now.

Choose a volunteer to celebrate this week. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!

We’d love your opinion. If you were a teenager coming to our church for the first time, what do you think your experience would be like? Hit Reply on this email and let us know. We’d love to get better!
