November 6 - Parents

Current Series – Anxiety Monster

Sometimes we think of Anxiety as something that some people have and other people don’t have, but anxiety is something we all carry with us. We just carry it at different levels. For some of us it is barely noticeable, yet for others it is crippling. The goal is not for us to get rid of our anxiety; the goal is for us to put our anxiety in its proper place. It’s like we all have this pet anxiety monster that we carry with us everywhere we go. It starts out small and manageable, but it can quickly grow into something that causes a lot of trouble in our lives. In this series we will talk about what types of things our pet anxiety monster feeds on, and how we can put it on a diet.

This week’s bottom line: We can’t choose what we’ve been given, but we can choose what we focus on

Car Ride Home Questions: Here are some ideas to hopefully help you have some awesome conversations with your kid(s):

  1. What should you focus on instead of the distractions in your life?  

  2. Jesus tells us to “seek first the kingdom of God.” What do you think that looks like for your life? What things should you start doing? What things should you stop doing?  


Announcements:

November 27th

On November 27th we will not be meeting for Lifeline. If you revived one of our calendars in the mail you may have noticed that we incorrectly stated that we would be meeting that Wednesday, so please disregard that and don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any schedule questions!

Snow Camp

We are so excited for our annual Snow Camp. This weekend away has proven to be a catalyst to relational growth within our small groups, and an important event in the faith journey of many students. Again this year we will be at Spring Hill Camps in Evart, MI from January 3-5. This is for both Middle and High School Students. Cost is $160 (busing provided and required). Space is LIMITED!

Visit our events page for all the info and to start the registration process!

Devotional

We created a devotional to go along with our teaching series this month. We’d love for your students to give it a try and take this step to regularly be in the bible as we have conversations around these feelings of anxiety and stress.
