This fall we will be going through “The Story” together.

As you get ready to usher your teenager into a new school year, here’s a question: is your lifestyle something you want your teenager to mirror? Chances are, you have a vice or two that you’d prefer your teenager didn’t duplicate. If that’s the case, now is the perfect chance to create some new rhythms and habits in your own life. You can live the kind of life you want your teenager to mirror.

Summer is no time for your teenager to be glued to their devices. With a new tool called Circle, with Disney, you can manage your teenagers’ time and content on their devices so they can spend more time in the sunshine. Check it out!
Hey parents, as we wrap out this school year, would you help us out? As the parent of a teenager, what’s one thing our church could do to better serve and help you? Email Hannah and let us know!
