Parents Try This: Try sharing a story of what it was like growing up where you lived as a student. Was it a big city or a small town? Was there a lot to do or were you often bored? Most importantly, in what ways does your hometown shape who you are today? As you share, you may just find your student starting to value his or her own experience more exactly where they are.

The Story (1/6)
1) Know God’s Story
The idea is that through the 3 years the teens are in 7-9th grade, they will go through the entire Bible. It’s important the teens has a grasp and understanding of the basic story of Scripture and these lessons are the main way we help them to see the BIG PICTURE and MAIN STORIES of Scripture.
When they were younger they probably learned some of the main stories but now they are older we want them to learn more specifics. Not just their was a guy who built a boat, but we hope they can nail down more of the specific details of Scripture.
2) God’s Story Impacts Their Life
We also just don’t want to stop at them knowing the main stories of Scripture but we want them to understand how these stories relate to them and how we can be TRANSFORMED by reading and applying the Bible to our lives. These stories did not just happen a long time ago but they inform us how to live today.

Acts – Empowered (1/5)
This past year the church has been studying the books of Acts in Small Groups, for Summer Series, and Chuck preached a series on the Conversion in Acts. Going along with this congregational theme we have had, the teens are studying the book of Acts and looking at how the church was Empowered to be movers and shakers in the first century church and what we can learn from them.
