Ice Cream With A Youth Director!

Ice Cream With A Youth Director!
This is something that we started offering awhile ago, but we just wanted to make sure you all know that it is still available to you! If any of our students are interested in having a one on one conversation with Sara or Troy over ice cream they can! All we ask is that youth get written permission from a parent to do so and contact Sara or Troy about a time and place that works! This can be an opportunity for youth to ask questions, share about things they're struggling with, ask for advice, or even just enjoy a fun time getting ice cream!
 
We want our youth to know that we are here for them and they can come to us with questions or problems that they do not feel comfortable discussing in an open setting. The idea is that female students would go with Sara and male students would go with Troy, but also if a student would like to get ice cream with both of us that is okay too!

Spring Break Movie Monday!
March 18, 2019
For those of you staying in town over spring break, we want to hang out! On Monday, March 18th from 10am to 4pm we will have a "Triple P" Movie Day and go see "Captain Marvel" in theaters (so wait to see it if you can!). We will meet at the church at 10 am to pray and hang out there until it's time to go to lunch and the movie. If the weather is nice, we will walk downtown or we may go to the East Ridge theater depending on movie times. We will be back at the church by 4pm!

Parent Council Meeting - March 13, 2019

Parent Council Meeting
March 13, 2019
We will have a Parent Council meeting next Wednesday, March 13th from 6pm-7pm (while youth are in Bible Study). It's been awhile since our last meeting so we have lots of things to discuss! We hope you can join us! All parents of youth are welcome!! 
 
Most changes that take place in the student ministry are a result of either the Youth Council or the Parent Council. The Youth Council is more focused on events while the Parent Council focuses on the ministry nuts and bolts (organization, education, procedures, training and structure). 
 
It is the venue in which parents and volunteers who genuinely care about the ministry get to talk about concerns and posit solutions. The creativity and dedication of previous parent councils have played a major role in the stability, effectiveness, and growth of our student ministry. If you really want to make a difference then this is a great place to plug in!

Confirmation Bible Presentation - February 10, 2019

Confirmation 2019
Happening now, but not too late to join!
 
For all youth 6th grade and up. This year's Confirmation classes started last Sunday, but it's not too late to join. The classes will meet every Sunday (during the Sunday School hour from 9:30am to 10:30am).
 
Confirmation is a special tradition in the United Methodist Church. Like baptism, it is a milestone event in the lives of our youth. It is a time to begin a journey of faith that nurtures and challenges preteens to think about the nature of God, the life of Christ, His calling, and our response. It is also a time to begin learning the beliefs, theology, and traditions specific to the United Methodist Church. 
 
REMINDER: This Sunday is the Bible Presentation in the 10:45am Nave/Sanctuary Service. All Confirmands will sit together on the front row.

Middle School Small Group Bible Study
Every Sunday in February
 
Middle School students are invited to participate in a special one month bible study for middle school students only. These are small group bible studies designed specifically for Middle School students. Boys and girls will meet separately. Boys will meet at the Simpson's and the girls will meet next door at the Armstrong's. Less than 10 minutes away from the church! Food will be provided.
 
Our second Middle School Bible Study will be at the normal time!
 
Join us this Sunday, February 10, 2019 from 6pm to 7:30pm!
Even if you weren't able to make it last week, we'd still love for you to join us! The houses are side by side:
 
Girls will meet at the Armstrong’s (606 Hill Pointe Lane, Chattanooga, TN)
Boys will meet at the Simpson’s (594 Hill Pointe Lane, Chattanooga, TN)
 
We will start with dinner (it's free!) at the Simpson's house, and then boys will stay there and girls will walk over to the Armstrong's for Bible study!
 
Come hang out as we ask and discuss the difficult questions…
Can I Trust the Bible?
Does the Bible contradict itself?
Can I be a Christian and believe in evolution?
Is Jesus the only way to God?
