Our September newsletter, The Ascent, is available here! Please read on for important information about changes in our children’s ministry as well as program highlights for the month of September.
In the fall we will launch a 5-session course geared around topics for Parenting Teens. There are two opportunities for parents of teens (or prospective parents of teens!) to take the course. It will run concurrently with Middle School Youth Group on Fridays from 6:30 – 8:30pm and it will also take place concurrently with High School Youth Group on Saturdays from 4 – 6pm. CHILDCARE for younger siblings is provided. The dates and session topics are as follows:
September 16/17 Keeping the End in Mind
October 7/8 Meeting our Teenagers’ Needs
October 21/22 Setting Boundaries
November 4/5 Developing Emotional Health
November 18/19 Helping Teens make Good Choices
The Parenting Teens Course is for any parent or guardian of children aged 11 – 18, whether they consider themselves to have strong parenting skills or are struggling, and whether they are parenting as a couple, as a single parent, or as a step-parent. You are welcome to come alone or as a couple. The practical tools offered in the course are applicable to everyone who has responsibility for a child in this age group, including Christians as well as those who have not made a faith commitment or belong to a different faith tradition. For more information, contact Alex at 412-652-3137 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
WE BELIEVE: Exploring the Nicene Creed
Last fall, we looked at the 10 commandments together. Then during Lent, we studied the Lord’s Prayer. This fall we will turn to the third pillar of Christian catechesis (discipleship): the Creed. On Sunday mornings beginning August 28, we will walk through each part of the Nicene Creed over seven weeks in a sermon series. In particular, we will be looking at the biblical foundation for the beliefs contained in the Nicene Creed and how these beliefs impact our lives today.
This sermon series will be accompanied by a teaching series on Wednesday evenings beginning August 31 (7 – 8:30pm). The teaching series will take us more in-depth into the beliefs and implications of the Creed and will examine the historical background, theological importance, and practical implications of each clause in the Nicene Creed. We have a great slate of teachers lined up for the course. You won’t want to miss this excellent teaching! CHILDCARE WILL BE PROVIDED.
