Balcony Worship

Join the youth staff on Sunday mornings after Sunday School in the 11:00 am traditional worship service in the West Balcony of the Sanctuary! Worship and hang out with us!

Be the Change Bucket

The “Be the Change Bucket” will officially start this week. Bring any spare change you have, loose dollars, or Sacagawea dollar coins to the Justin on Sunday Mornings. This month all giving goes toward helping put together backpacks for kids!

Middle School Lock In/Out

October is right around the corner, which means it is almost time for our middle schoolers to come and rule the Justin for an evening. There will be food, worship, big games, and a couple of surprises outside of the Justin scattered throughout the night! Dates are below and sign-ups will be sent out soon. You don’t want to miss out!

Bring it Home!

Everything we do in the Justin is centered around practicing our faith, whether that is practicing it by playing, worshiping, serving, learning, giving, or praying. All of these things are ways we practice our faith and maintain our relationship with God. This week with your teenager have a conversation about having a relationship with God. Below are a few prompts to help you start the conversation at home:

1. Find a place and time (in the car, at dinner, during a Hulu commercial . . .) to briefly tell your teenager about what your relationship with God looks like or about times things have drawn you closer to God (when and how you pray, what church means for you, the ways you keep your faith fresh).

2. Ask: How do you keep up your relationship with God?

3. Ask: What are some meaningful things you’ve experienced at church or other places that have drawn you closer to God?

Have a fantastic week and see you Sunday!

Andrew
