"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.

September is here, which means the new school year is in full swing! Thanks for letting us invest in your teenager for another year. We can't wait for what's ahead!

Here are a few things coming up that we want you to be aware of: 

SEE YOU AT THE POLE
Wednesday, September 25 students will gather around their school flag poles, as the pray for revival in their schools and communities. both Mac High & Elyria will meet (at their respective poles) at 7:15 AM that day.

That evening all of the McPherson youth groups will unite for the "See You [AFTER] The Pole" rally at Countryside Covenant Church, 7:00-8:00 PM

ALL CHURCH PICNIC
REMIX will not meet on Sunday, September 29 because of our annual "All-church Picnic", 5:00 PM @ Lakeside park

HIGH SCHOOL (REMIX)
STRONGER:
A 4-WEEK SERIES ON HURT AND PAIN

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Life hurts sometimes. If you haven't already experienced it, there will be a day when you'll encounter pain, failure, or loss. Sometimes the hurt we feel happens because of something we do, or something that is done to us, or something that is no one's fault at all. In this 4-week series, we'll talk about how, when life hurts, or goes wrong, or doesn't make sense, these things are true: Jesus can redeem what's gone wrong, God can be trusted, God gives us each other, and God helps us persevere.
 

MIDDLE SCHOOL
LIFELINES:
A 1-WEEK SERIES ON FRIENDSHIP

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Do you have any friendships you can really count on — the kind of friendships you might call your "lifelines?" God designed us to have friendships we can trust, but God also knew we'd need some help figuring out how to build friendships that are lifelines for each other. In this 4-week series, we'll look at the kind of friendship Jesus models for us: friendship that lets us be real, gives us a chance to grow, gives us a group when we feel alone, and can even change the world.

Teenagers can be pretty dramatic sometimes, but do you think you could spot the difference between typical teenage stress or drama, and a real mental health concern? When it comes to your teenager's mental health, always be aware of your own limitations, and don't ignore any concerns that your kid might need support from a medical or mental health professional. And as always, if your kid is struggling, let us know how we can help!

 

If you're the kind of person who refuses to read parenting books, hang on just a second! We have one we think you'll actually like. It's called The Grown-Up's Guide to Teenage Humans. It's fun, practical, encouraging, and it even comes in audiobook form. Check it out!

On a scale of 1-5, how helpful are these parent cues? We'd love to hear from you. send Pastor Zach an email ( zfleming@macfmc.org ) and let him know
