Join us for an amazing weekend retreat filled with games, hummer rides, music, getting to know your fellow students better, and learning more about God. This is one of the best trips of the year so don’t miss it!  We will meet the charter bus in the Rotunda side parking lot and start packing at 5:30pm and leave at 6:00pm.  We have moved the time we leave back by an hour to make it easier for parents to get their students from school and allow some of the traffic to clear out.  Please feed or bring dinner for your student before arriving to drop off.  More details about the weekend will be published as we get closer to the retreat.

Chaperones are needed to make this weekend a success.  You will help lead small group discussions, participate in worship, and supervise free time.  Please sign up if you are interested.  Chaperone sign up will close on September 22 and the team will be selected and notified on September 23 based on the number of students signed up.

Every parent desires to better understand their kids, engage with them more intentionally, and learn how to dialogue with them about critical issues, but we find ourselves so pressed for time and constantly putting out one fire after the next in the lives of our kids… sometimes literally! Parent Cue Live is a two-hour experience to help you become more connected to a community of faith and more intentional with your kids home. You’ll hear from leading innovators in child development to help you recognize and nuture your child’s emotional, physical, mental, and social needs at every phase of their lives.
 
Parent Cue Live will help you…
  • REDISCOVER what your kids need most in every phase
  • REPRIORITIZE how to engage with your kids every week
  • REIMAGINE how to dialogue with your kids about critical issues
  • RETHINK ways to partner with a church to impact your kid’s future

 We know how busy you are. That’s why this event is so important and why we’d like to send you at a discount!

Weekly Events

On Sundays

Sunday School
Every Sunday at 9:00am.
Students are figuring out who they are as they search for whose they are. Sunday morning provides opportunities for students to explore their personal and communal identity in Jesus Christ through meaningful community-building experiences, engaging Bible study, and relevant learning activities. Biblical stories will come alive in new and creative ways. In response to God’s amazing, unconditional love, students will be challenged to put their faith into action as they grow to understand themselves as Christ’s disciples. Our curriculum is based off the Revised Common Lectionary so will align with the worship and preaching texts each week.
