News and Notes
TEEN EVENTS   –   I want to watch your teens in action, whether watching them in the band, debate, chorus, football, baseball, tennis, volleyball, or underwater basket weaving.  If your teen plays a sport or is in a club or some type of school activity I want to watch.  Get me a schedule of when they play or perform, or even tell me the day of event, so I can come and cheer them on.  

Whose Graduating??   –   It is crazy to think about but we are already starting to make plans for our Graduation Service in May!  I need to know if your teen is graduating because I will need to send you some information in the upcoming weeks.

AGAPE GROUPS   –   I want to encourage all parents and their teens to get involved in an Agape group.  I want to stress that teens need to get involved in an Agape group and that the teens should not be used as just babysitters, but this is a great chance for the teens to get involved in the congregation as a whole.  Teens, if for some reason you can’t be in an Agape group with your parents, get involved in another Agape group, I can help you find one if you need my help.

Reach (6/6) – A Study on Psalms and Prayer

The point of the lesson was to teach your child that they are missing an awesome level of communication with God when they don’t make time to stop and thank Him for all He’s done in and through their lives.
Next Steps . . . (Parents this part is NEW)
This week your child learned how a deepening relationship with God, through a vibrant prayer life, can lead them to boldly express the joy of their relationship with God, confident and bold in their faith. Help challenge your child in this area with the following questions:

·       How does a richer communication with God lead you to more confidence in your relationship with Him?

·       Think about times when God has intervened in your life. How can we express our joy and happiness over these moments in a way that makes others want to experience them for themselves?

·       Since your study was about reaching out to God, what are some ways we can thank God for all He has done in our lives?

Back to School mini-retreat   –   In the past we have done back to school lock-ins and back to school day trips.  This year we wanted to try something different.  We thought a mini-retreat would be a great way to start off the school year.  Short trip, leave Friday evening get back Saturday before dinner.  We will use the time to hang out, play some games, and have a couple of lessons.

Next Steps . . .  (This part is new each week!!)
Next is learning to trust God in all situations of life. Here are some questions that might help you talk to your child about the word trust:

·       How has your understanding of trusting God grown since you first became a Christian?

·       Do you think God can be trusted to help you in day-to-day situations? How do your actions either back this belief up, or undermine it?

·       What stands in the way of being able to trust God to help you in all areas of your life?

Next Steps . . .

Maybe you could recall some “God moments” in your life. Hindsight is crystal clear. And looking back, maybe you can recall some instances where you could positively identify God’s intervention in some way. Consider sharing this with your child. Then, consider asking these or similar questions to engage your child in a conversation based on this concept:

·       Why is it sometimes hard to see what God is doing in our day-to-day life?

·       How does God’s working in our past give us confidence in the present, and hope for the future?

·       Is there a moment you can look to where you can absolutely say that was God working? Describe it. (Share your perspective of that moment, as well.) What did you learn about God from this moment? What did you learn about yourself or our family?
