Just wanted to let you know a few things.
- Yesterday, after a time of praise and worship and breakfast together, we broke the students up into small groups to discuss community. Within that context, we asked for the kids to give us ideas of events that they would like to do, events that they would actually come to. I haven't seen the list yet, but I've heard that they came up with some really creative ideas. We want to provide events in this ministry that the kids just HAVE to come to because they don't want to miss out. The reason: it builds community. The events that we have done have not brought a lot of students as of late. The ones who have come have gotten pretty tight (which is the goal of the events), but we want the whole high school ministry to impacted by this. This is where you come in: if you have any ideas we would love to hear from you as well. Go ahead and email your ideas to Ashey Copenhaver (firstname.lastname@example.org) if anything comes to mind.
- This Wednesday night we are finishing up our series called, "Moxie". The topic is being bold to go and share the gospel. We are also having baptism this Wednesday night. If you or your teenager have not been baptized, I would like to challenge you and/or your high schooler to follow Jesus in this step of obedience. If you are able come, I would love to see you come and worship with us this Wednesday night (7pm in the main worship center).
- This Friday night we have "Dancing With Friends" at the Pomona Valley Workshop. We go and help throw a dance for those who are devel0pmentally disabled who work at the Pomona Valley Workshop. I invite you to join the group as they ministry to this group of people. This is a great time and a great opportunity to serve with your high schooler. If you have any questions, email Ashely (email is above) or call her at 909-938-4737.
- MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! Ignite 2010 is coming. October 23, 2010 from 5-8pm. This is a worship event that God has put on my heart to start and lead. If you want to see what it's all about, click here.
Thank you again for allowing us to partner with you as you raise your teenagers to love Jesus.
