Ready/Sent/Go on the Horizon!

We are two weeks from our big fall weekend: Ready/Sent/Go! Hope your student will be joining us for this great weekend. See the update below for all the info and sign up this Wednesday at MIDWEEK or online via the website link.

Thanks to everyone who joined us at the movies on Sunday afternoon. I thought the movie was great and it is always fun to give a little surprise reward for those who study with us during our Passport Sundays. When the Game Stands Tall is a great movie- see it soon because I’m sure it won’t be in theaters much longer.

Developing Your Spiritual Relationship with Your Teen.

Over the next four weeks I will be posting a series of videos that will provide some insight into building your spiritual relationship with your teen. There a lots of facets to the parents/teen relationship, we are authority, disciplinarian, homework monitor, transportation service etc… but I find, even as a minister, having meaningful spiritual conversations is tough. Way more work than I thought it would be. Think these series of videos might be encouraging and helpful.

How does your teenager respond when they fail and how do you as a parent respond to that failure.  Shellie and Brian teach in this session that your teenager’s mistakes are an open door to grow spiritually.

OTDFall2014-Web-280x280On Track Monthly Devotionals :: October/The Gospel of Luke

As a new emphasis this year we are using On Track Devotionals to encourage our students to develop the habit of reading and studying the Word of God daily. Ken Ullrich is heading up text/email encouragements and challenges to students who decide to use On Track Devotions and we will celebrate with students each month as they complete a book of devotions. If you would like to check out On Track Devotions drop by the cafe and grab one off the new student ministry resource table. You are more than welcome to use OTD along with  your students to engage them in conversation and deeper discipleship.
