Hello Parents!

Camp is less than 11 days away!!! Vertical Student Camp is one of our events that we see God move in really big ways in many of our students and we anticipate Him to continue to show Himself faithful and do great things! So as the days draw closer to July 22, we get more and more excited! We hope you are excited as well! And we hope that you will join us in the excitement this Sunday for the very important and super necessary parent meeting! We will meet at noon after Connect Groups in the Middle School Room. This is where we will make sure your student has everything they will need before we hit the road, as well as answer any questions you might still have about camp. This will also be where your student will learn what tribe they will be in and you can go out and get all the tribe gear you can! We can’t wait to see you this Sunday!!!

Love you all tons, and as always please let us know if we can ever be of assistance to you and your students. We are here for you.


These are the big events that are coming up in our student ministry!

Colossians 1:28-29


Dear Parents,

We are continuing our series on the topic “What’s Next?” Each week, our students are experiencing meaningful conversations, diving into different passages of Scripture, and taking an inspired look at what life after high school looks like when Jesus is at the center of their desires and plans.

In our second lesson, we will discuss John 17:22-24, part of a beautiful conversation Jesus had with God the Father. Jesus’ mission and his heart for us became abundantly clear as he spoke to God about his pure and perfect will for us: that we would know how deeply God loves us.

This week, we have some great questions you can use as a tool to build conversation around—an opportunity to spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about our lesson:

Have you ever considered how much God the Father loved Jesus? How do you feel knowing that Jesus declared in John 17 that he wants you to feel as loved by God as he did?

As you gain more responsibilities and freedom, what actions can help you keep your relationship with God at the center of your life?

How does knowing God’s immeasurable love for you provide clarity about today and tomorrow?

Thank you so much for always praying for our students and ministry. Have a blessed week!
