NGU PARENT E-NEWSLETTER
VERSE OF THE MONTH
PARENTS IN PRAYER
We hope that your Christmas holiday was wonderful! We are praying that your student felt excited to come back home to us at NGU! As they are beginning this new year and new semester, let's join together in praying for a fresh anticipation for the things that this year will hold.

  • Pray for that first day of class as your student is given a new syllabus. Instead of dread, pray that they feel energized over the assignments and projects that will be included their classes.

  • Pray that they will have favor with their professors. Our faculty love our students and long to see them succeed.

  • Pray for new friends as your student begins new classes.

  • Pray for them to get settled back into dorm life.
