Our first WSYM Midweek meeting begins TONIGHT at 5:30pm. The Cornerstone will be open and we'll serve pizza and drinks -- $3 per person, $10 for families of 4+, and VISITORS ARE FREE. Invite a friend!!!
At 6:30pm the youth -- grades 6-12 -- will start their meeting time in the amphitheater there in the Cornerstone while parents are free to pick one of the many classes offered at West Side or sit in on the youth meeting. We've got a great lineup of Bible studies beginning tonight at West Side. You can see a full list HERE. I know I plan on taking full advantage on them when I can!
Tonight we'll be using our meeting time to welcome all the new students into the WSYM. We'll lay some groundwork about about the youth ministry, talk about what we're about and how to stay connected, and then intro what we'll be studying this school year. We'll end in a special time of prayer together! Please encourage your teen to be there! It's going to the great!
We hope to see you tonight!
It's that fun time again when we need updated WSYM Release Forms! The form covers medical information, participation release, emergency contacts, etc.
We're going to need one for each student that participates in WSYM events. You can download the form below. It's also going to be on the website under "Events" and there will be plenty of copies on hand in the Cornerstone. Let me know if you have any questions.
This week we wrapped up our back-to-school series, which has highlighted some of the ways that a new school year brings great opportunities. In our final conversation, we discussed some of the challenges, setbacks, and stormy waters our teenagers may face—which create a different sort of opportunity! Specifically, we discussed that although Jesus never promised us a life without storms, he will guide us and walk with us during those difficult moments, if we invite him to do so.
We encouraged our teenagers to decide ahead of time, here at the beginning of the new school year, that no matter what storms they encounter, they’ll hold steady and not give up on their commitments to follow God’s ways and make a mark this year.
Spend a few minutes talking with your teenager this week to talk about the things we discussed. Here are a few questions you could ask:
Our ministry to your child is better because of our partnership with you!
Thanks for the support.
