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.
For the month of June, the student ministry is focused on finishing the school year strong and looking ahead to an amazing summer! This month, we are wrapping up a teaching series on what it looks like to live out a gospel-centered life. We’ll also have an end of year recap on June 12th, our last Wednesday night gathering of the school year.
This month we’re celebrating our graduating seniors! Please join us in praying for and congratulating our graduating seniors. We invite all this years graduating seniors up on stage on Sunday, June 2nd during both the 9a and 11a worship gatherings. We will pray over them as they transition from high school to the next season of life. We will also have a small gift for them.
We’re also celebrating the success of a new format we’ve been trying out of Wednesday nights. In this format, instead of having a longer large-group teaching time, we have a much shorter teaching followed by a longer time spent in small groups discussing the topic. In this format, each student has a bible in their hands during small group and students are able to read scripture together to answer questions on the evening’s topics. We’ve found that students have become much more open to sharing and reading scripture, and also are a bit more engaged in answering questions than during our traditional small group time. We are praising God for these blessings!
SAVE THE DATE
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.

Please pray that our students would be diligent to pursue the Lord this summer, rather than falling into lazy patterns. Pray also that the relationships formed this school year would grow, rather than diminish over the summer months.
Pray for us leaders as we continue to plan for summer camp. We deeply desire God to move in both leaders’ and students’ lives but we need the Lord’s blessing and protection in order for that to be a reality.
Pray for our students to be saturated with the gospel and to be witnesses for Jesus among their friends and community.
Please pray for the students, the leaders, their families, and the Student Ministry as a whole; that we would seek the Lord above all else and love one another with the love of Christ.
