  • Area-wide Devo @ White House Church of Christ: (this is for 7-12th graders)
    • March 19th (time is TBD)
    • Similar to the area-wide devo we recently hosted at our church, White House Church of Christ is hosting the next area-wide devo at their church in March.
      • They have invited our youth ministry to come (7-12th graders).
      • It would be great if one or two adults are willing to come with us as well. (if you are an adult who would like to join us, please let me know!)

  • Teen Devos: (this is for 7-12th graders only)
    • We would like to continue having a teen devo once a month (every 3rd Sunday of the month)!
      • Each month a different family will host the devo at their house.
      • This event will be for the Youth Ministry (7-12th graders)
    • This will be a great opportunity for the teens to spend a few hours together in a different environment, and I believe this will be a great time for them to grow together as a group.
    • Please let me know if you would be interested in hosting one of these devos!

  • Jackson’s personal thoughts:

 

  • Adults, unless you have been asked to sit in class with the teens, I am asking that you please would not sit in class with them. Here’s why: I want to be very intentional about creating an atmosphere for the teens that is comfortable and that allows them to participate openly with each other. From my own experience I have noticed that the students are much more willing to share when the atmosphere is safe and when it is an atmosphere that encourages conversation. While adults can help carry the conversation, sometimes when there are too many adults (or sometimes even one adult) in the room, it can intimidate a student and keep them from speaking up. That is why I have been intentional about keeping youth events limited to the 7-12th graders; I want the teens to get comfortable and familiar with each other, and I want them to get used to being in a setting where they know they can share with the group. I would really appreciate your help with this! I think this will benefit the teens now and in the future as well.

 

  • I am very excited for 2017. I am excited to see what God will do through our ministry this year. We have a lot of exciting opportunities planned for the teens over the next few months, so I am looking forward to keeping the momentum going as we begin a new year. My prayer is that we can all work together this year to create unity and to challenge each other to grow closer to God daily.
