Parenting resources:

Here are 5 questions from Sunday's youth group lesson for following up with your teen... (8/20/17)

 TO BREAK INTO THE CONVERSATION: "Hey, are you doing anything right now? (if they are, schedule some time with them soon at home or take them out for Panera or ice cream or something else you find yummy). (If they're not doing anything...) What happened at youth group today?"

1) Are you excited about the eclipse that's coming?

2) Do you have a good hide and seek story? Tell it.

3) What do people hide behind to keep from getting closer to God?

4) Is there something you hide behind to keep from getting better connected to God?

5) What can I pray for for you this week to help you not hide from God?

  The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (CPYU) is a nonprofit organization committed to building strong families by serving to bridge the cultural-generational gap between parents and teenagers. All kinds of great resources for parents are available here.

A great way to understand teens today and what they're going through. We ask all of our leaders to read this book and think it will help you too to gain a greater understanding of youth and youth culture today! Purchase it here.

  Here's a snapshot on what we think about youth ministry around here.

It'll help you understand better why we do what we do and how we can work together.


As a youth ministry, we want to be a great partner to you and your family. Please feel free to contact us to talk about that process. We are honored to serve with you in helping your teens know God.


Be His,
