SUNDAY, AUGUST 26th

Hello Parents!

Tonight, we will begin our first teaching series for Fall called “I Will”. For the next four weeks, we will open up God’s Word to challenge and equip our students to invite, welcome, value and invest in others around them. We are so excited about this series because we want these values to be at the core of who we are as a student ministry. It will be an awesome four weeks that your student will not want to miss out on!

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.

BABY SHOWER FOR LUIS & KATY!
Please mark your calendars for THIS Sunday, August 26th! There will be a baby shower for Luis and Katy Ruiz on Main Street after the second service, so please stop by and congratulate them! They are expecting a boy, and they are registered at Target and Buy, Buy, Baby. Let’s bless our high school pastor’s family!

WEDNESDAY NIGHT
Tonight begins our “I Will” series. We will start with “I will invite”, focusing on the importance and power of a personal invitation. Whether that is an invitation to come to church with us, or an invitation to have a personal relationship with Jesus. An invitation can change someone’s life!

ALL IN (STUDENT LEADERSHIP)
In our ministry, we believe that students are the best ones to lead students. All In is a student leadership opportunity to get plugged in to lead in our student ministry. Our first All In meeting will be Sunday, September 9th at 8:15am (Meet in the Warehouse).

We love and care about the families in our ministry so deeply, and our heart is to serve you and your family in the best way that we can! If there is anything we can do to help, please feel the freedom to let us know.

CURRICULUM

Dear Parents,

We are wrapping up the four-lesson series “A Faith of My Own,” where students explored how to nurture a faith that lasts.

In the final session, we will compare two passages, Mark 10:46-52 and Matthew 17:14-20. Both focus on the power of faith but in very different ways. In Mark, Jesus heals Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, saying, “Your faith has healed you.” In Matthew, the disciples are unable to cast a demon out of a boy because they “don’t have enough faith.” By comparing these accounts, students will explore how even a little faith can unlock Jesus’ amazing power in our lives.

Sometime this week, talk with your teenager about this lesson. You can use any or all of these questions to get the conversation started:

  • What are some ways you’ve experienced the power of faith in your life?
  • When has something seemed impossible to you, and how did you approach it?
  • Respond to this statement: Faith is still powerful, even if your prayers aren’t answered exactly how you want.

We appreciate all your prayers for our students and our ministry. Have an amazing week!
