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.
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

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