Hey Student Ministry Parents!
Welcome to this month’s Student Ministry Newsletter. It’s our goal to keep you informed and give you all the info you’d need as parents to support and encourage the work the Student Ministry aims to do in helping every student to know, love, and live for Jesus.
We are finishing up our “Jesus and Mean People” series, and will begin a new series called, “Jesus and Identity.” When we enter into a salvation-relationship with Jesus, our identity is forever changed and a new identity is born in place of the old one. This is the “new creation” Paul talks about in 2 Corinthians 5. This new identity is one that finds its definition and purpose in Christ. Our hope is that students will learn what Jesus meant when He challenged them to be salt and light, they’ll be reminded that Jesus defines greatness differently than the world, they’ll learn that their true purpose is found in remaining in Christ, and they’ll see that Jesus wants to use them to reach the lost.
This month we are celebrating our first ever Karaoke night! We spent a recent Friday evening singing our (Achy Breaky) hearts out to some great old songs, Disney movie anthems, and current hits. Great fun was had by all, and personalities really came out on the stage. This will definitely be a repeat event!

Our hope and desire is that all our students are able to participate in every opportunity to grow closer to each other and to Jesus as we serve, play, and worship together.
