MONTHLY UPDATE | September 2021
Happy Labor Day! I hope your family's transition back to school has been a smooth one and you're enjoying some great family time on this long weekend.

Now that we're into September, we're so excited to get back into the groove of Student Ministry. Student Growth Groups resume this Wednesday, September 8, then this Sunday night, September 12 at 6 p.m. we'll kick off the semester of The Brook with our annual Family Meeting - this year including "Bussin' BBQ". Be sure you're there to be in the loop about all that's coming this year!

All the details you need for this month are below. We'll see you at the family meeting!

NEW SERIES
The Bible: A Field Guide

Sunday, September 12, we'll be beginning a new series in Student SMBS called "The Bible: A Field Guide". In this series we'll be tackling big questions you might have about the Bible - Where did it come from? Can we trust it? How should we use it? Why would I want to base my life here and now on a collection of thousands-of-years-old books?

Each Sunday morning we'll dive into these questions and more.
Our conversation needs your voice. Come join us!
Student Growth Groups Start This Week
Wednesdays | 7-8 p.m.

These weekly small groups are designed to help us dive deeper into relational discipleship. We do this by reading scripture and being in community with one another.
