WEEKLY PARENT UPDATE
The Youth Staff is excited to offer a parent/guardian resource that will help you track what your child is learning in AlieNation, as well as give you content to engage with them in spiritual conversations. Each week we will provide questions tied to Biblical passages that you can walk through and discuss with your teen. We believe that parents are the main influencers of their children (though it might not seem like it sometimes) and that this resource will help you to come along side your child both as a parent/guardian and their Spiritual Mentor.
RETREATS and CONFERENCES
Retreats are a key way to get connected with the youth group; with each event offering its own special appeal. Throughout the year there is something for everyone:
