Student Ministry Update
I'm so excited about this fall and all the opportunities that students will have to grow in their faith, to build strong relationships with other believers and to put into practice the faith they profess. I hope you will take a moment and consider how you can encourage your student to join us for this great adventure.
Parents, I can't emphasize enough the importance of teenagers being in a place where they are encouraged to grow in their faith and where they will learn to own their faith. We are by far not a perfect church or a perfect student ministry, but I can promise you that we are doing all we can to provide the very best place here in the Delta for students to establish a relationship with God, to grow in that relationship, and to share that relationship with others.

If your student is not plugged in a local church youth ministry, then we would love for them to join us! Now, more than ever, we, as parents and leaders, must take seriously the call we have to lead and nurture our students and their relationship with the Lord. I hope you will take advantage of all these opportunities this fall and allow us to partner with you in seeing our students grow in their faith!

P.S. I know that some of the students that are involved in our student ministry attend other churches on Sunday. We do not want to pull you from your church, but we would love to have you join us for any other events (Wednesday night, etc.). You are always welcome!
