"Parent Cue"

Welcome to the “Parent Cue”. Our goal is to update this page weekly with “prompts” (cues) to help you continue to disciple your student beyond what is being discussed during our weekly Youth Group gatherings. Here you’ll find lesson break-downs and some follow-up discussion questions. Because really, we know you’re already incredibly busy doing all the things you should do to invest in your kids and to help them on their way to adulthood—and hopefully out of your house. But just because you are really busy doing great things doesn’t mean it’s easy to stay focused on whatever was talked about at church last Wednesday. Thus, the “Parent Cue”. This is just another way we’re striving to partner with you.


We know the holidays are a busy time for you and your family, so let's get straight to the point. Here's everything you need to know about our ministry this month!

AFTER YOU: A K SERIES ON OTHERS

In a culture obsessed with selfies, celebrities, money, and success, it’s not difficult to understand why so many of us struggle with being a little self-centered at times. But while “me first” may the norm for the rest of the world, Jesus showed us what it looks like to live a generous, compassionate, selfless, “after you” kind of life. In this teaching series, we’ll challenge students to move away from the world’s “me first” attitude and embrace the “after you” message of Jesus by noticing needs, opening their hands, using their gifts, and sharing their joy.

We don't want to freak you out or anything, but here's something to keep in mind: more often than not, your teenager's faith will mirror yoursThis month, be mindful of the example you're setting for your teenager. It matters!
 

There are a lot of reasons it can be difficult for teenagers to put others before themselves, but let's be honest. The time they spend taking selfies and counting Instagram likes probably doesn't help. That's why we love this new tool called Circle, with Disney. It's the new way for parents like you to manage content and time across all your teenagers' devices. Check it out here.

We're always trying to better understand what it's like to parent a teenager. So here's what we're wondering: What's the BEST thing about parenting your teenager right now? Hit Reply on this email and let us know!
