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.
Safe Talk – During the three-hour safeTALK training, participants will learn how to respond to individuals who have made suicidal statements and help connect them with appropriate resources. Participants will also learn to recognize the invitations for help that some individuals make and are often overlooked by learning to apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep Safe. SafeTALK sessions are being planned for Sept 9 and Sept 23 from 1:00-4:15

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?
