Intentional parent & teen learning series are offered each year as students and parents engage in faith-based conversations around life/faith issues.
Wednesdays, September 6, 13 & 20, 6:15
7th graders and their parents are invited to intentionally start the Confirmation process with one another during this introductory Stepping Stone. Students and their parents will continue to grow in faith together and will walk through acolyting procedures, sermon note taking, family devotions, Bible reading, highs and lows, small groups structure and the details of Confirmation ministry. We’ll work together towards building effective student/parent relationships as students begin their journey through adolescence.

Your 8th grade child is soon to make the transition into the high school! Are you ready for this transition? Is your 8th grader ready for this transition?
Your children are surrounded by change as they themselves are changing. They are changing physically, emotionally and spiritually right before our eyes - becoming young men and women! Isn’t it exciting?!
This is a series to assist youth and their parents as Christian boys and girls become Christian men and women. This is NOT a series on the “Birds and the Bees”! Those issues are covered by you, the parent, and in your child’s health class.
What are the ground rules for using the car? Who pays for the gas, insurance, maintenance and/or traffic tickets? Who can ride in the car with the new driver? When and where can the car be used? What are appropriate boundaries for your child’s driving? Basic car maintenance issues. How can students stand up to negative peer pressure? Drinking and driving. What does it mean to be a Christian driver?
9th Grade is a year when many students begin driver’s education and go through the process of getting their driver’s license. This is a significant milestone in the life of the student, and the parents, as many issues surrounding this milestone impact family life.
This Stepping Stone series will include many opportunities for parent/student discussion and time to work towards developing a Driving Contract.
There will be a public recognition of this milestone in worship on Sunday, January 15 at the end of the 10:45 a.m.worship . Students and parents will be prayed for and blessed. Students will also be presented with a key chain to commemorate this milestone.
