sunday school

9 AM / Youth Lounge

This summer in Sunday School, we will be studying Gender & Sexuality. We understand that this can be a sensitive topic, but we believe it would be beneficial for students as they navigate the current cultural climate. We plan to do so in a way that is appropriate to their age and faithful to the teaching of scripture. In order to partner with parents, we are providing the lessons we will follow each week in this email. Please reach out with any questions you might have.

Schedule 

6/23 - The OT & creation on Sexuality (Desire & Sin) 

Lesson 2

 6/30 - What did Jesus say? 

7/7 - First Sunday Breakfast 

7/14 - The NT Application of the Gospel Part 1: Rom. 1 

7/21- The NT App. of the Gospel Part 2: 1 Cor. 6:9-11; 1 Tim. 1:8-11 

7/28 - How do we live in a culture that disagrees? 

8/4 - First Sunday Breakfast & Interns' Last Day 

We're eager to engage with your questions, whether they're from you or your children. Kindly complete THIS FORM, and we'll seek to address them as we delve into this subject. Questions are anonymous.

bible reading plan

As we continue to connect students to Jesus, each other, and the world, the Youth Ministry staff would like to invite students to engage with the Bible Project Reading Plan! This plan is designed to take the reader through the Bible in a year. One of the ways we get to know God is by learning His Word, and this reading plan can be a helpful tool towards understanding God better.

For more information, use the links below to find the plan, along with instructions and helpful aids to use as you walk through the Bible. We have also provided links to podcasts and an audio Bible with the hope that these will be other helpful tools for engaging the Bible in your own time!
