Here are 5 questions from Sunday's youth group lesson for following up with your teen... (4/23/17)

1) What's the most important thing you learned from Sunday's lesson at youth group?

2) What was your favorite game growing up? Hide and seek? Something else? (Everyone answer to get the conversation started)

3) The disciples totally missed that Jesus was right there with them. How and why do we miss that Jesus is with us?

4) Remembering that Jesus is really with us is crazy important. What's your favorite verse that reminds you that He's with us?

(Matthew 28:18-20, Hebrews 13:5, Romans 8:-35-39 for example)

5) What was your Next Step from Sunday's lesson at youth group? Do you want/need help with it? How can I pray for you as a result of Sunday's lesson?


  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,
