Summer Goals

The school year has come to a close for the most of the teens, meaning it’s SUMMER TIME! For most teens this means its a time for sleeping in, hanging out and binge watching shows. But when it comes to your spiritual lives it starts to look like the dusty backpack in the corner of of your rooms.

During the summer, youth group takes a break and vacations make church attendance hit or miss. Without a weekly connection to your church community, the focus on spiritual growth starts to fade.

Throughout the school year, youth group and church gives the youth a place to grow and dig deep into their relationship with Christ. It’s a place where they learn, ask questions and encourage one another. Then summer starts and that all goes away.

So how can you stay connected?
