"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 MacFREE Student ministry this month!

Here are a few things coming up in our ministry . . .

This is an awesome time for you to serve as a family. Come to the church fellowship hall on Saturday, November 16 @ 9:00 AM and help pack "Thanksgiving Boxes" for our community.

The date has changed for our HS paintball outing. It is now the 23rd of November, and is open to both boys and girls! 

FINAL YOUTH GROUP | MS: 11-20-19   HS: 11-24-19

Don't you just love a little friendly competition? There's something about being a part of a team that makes you excited to root for "us" and root against "them." With people and with God, we're often quick to see others like our enemies, but God invites us to see things differently. In this series, we'll explore the stories of Abraham, Jeremiah, Jonah, Isaiah, and more, as we see how the big story of Scripture reveals that God is for us, we're called to be for others, God is for our enemies, and Jesus proves that God is for us.

As a parent, we know you want your kids to grow up to be people who make the world a better place . . . but sometimes you wonder how, exactly, you're supposed to do that. Here's one really important way you can build generosity and compassion in your kid: serve others, together.

There are a lot of reasons it can be difficult for teenagers to think about loving others instead of just thinking about themselves, but let's be honest — the amount of time they spend staring at their screens each day 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!

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? Post on the Parent's Facebook page and let us know!
