    Lesson 4


    Dear Parents,


    We’ve just finished our study of Jesus and Faith. This week, the lesson was titled “Rock Solid.” In this lesson, we helped students learn that our faith is designed to be an active faith that guides our everyday lives. We challenged them to think about how their faith really impacts their day-to-day decisions, thoughts, and attitude.


    We looked at the following Scripture passage:

    • Matthew 7:24-27


    Please take a few minutes this week to read this passage.


    Next Steps . . . 

    During the next week as you have time to talk with your teenager, remember that one way that will help him or her to understand and apply what he or she has learned is to explain it to someone else. Use the following questions to guide your conversation:

    • In your mind, what does it mean to build your life on the foundation of faith in God’s Word?

    • How does your faith factor in your decision-making process?

    • How can our family move toward having a stronger faith foundation on God’s Word?

    Thank you for all you do. If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to text or call me.


    P.S. - Don't forget to sign-up for camp this week. We have lots to communicate before we leave on June 3rd. You can sign-up students HERE

    Lesson 3


    Dear Parents,


    Believe it or not, we’ve just finished week three of our four-week study on Jesus and Faith. This week, the lesson was titled “Do You Believe?” In this lesson, we helped students learn that true faith in God can be a powerful, transformational force in our lives and in the lives of others. We challenged them to take a look at the nature of their faith in God, to honestly assess any hesitancy or doubt, and to go to God in prayer with their thoughts.


    We looked at the following Scripture passages: 

    • Matthew 9:18-31

    • Matthew 21:17-22


    Please take a few minutes this week to read these passages.


    Next Steps . . . 

    During the next week as you have time to talk with your teenager, remember that one way that will help him or her to understand and apply what he or she has learned is to explain it to someone else. Use the following questions to guide your conversation:

    • You guys talked about faith and prayer this week. Do you remember what was said about how our faith impacts God’s plans to meet our needs?

    • What areas of faith are hard for you? In other words, what doubts do you have? (Assure your teenager that healthy doubt is a part of faith, and an important aspect of faith-ownership. If you feel it would be helpful, share some doubts or questions you struggle with, as well.)

    • What is the difference in your mind in having questions for God, or doubts, and having a weak faith? Do you think it’s possible to have a strong faith but still have questions?


    Thank you for all you do. If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to text or call me.

    Lesson 2


    Dear Parents,


    Greetings! We’re in our second week of a four-week look at what Jesus said about faith. This week, the lesson was titled “Be Good Soil.” In this lesson, we helped students learn that faith in Christ is the key to a life of meaning and purpose. We challenged them to evaluate their attitudes toward knowing and living out God’s Word.


    We looked at the following Scripture passage: 

    • Luke 8:4-15


    Please take a few minutes this week to read this passage.


    Next Steps . . . 

    During the next week as you have time to talk with your teenager, remember that one way that will help them to understand and apply what he or she has learned is to explain it to someone else. Use the following questions to guide your conversation:

    • Do you ever feel intimidated about reading the Bible? How about feelings of boredom? (Let your child know that at some point in their lives, everyone struggles with reading the Bible) Why do you think that is? 

    • Why do you think it’s so hard to actually live out the things we learn in the Bible? 

    • What was the last decision you made that was significantly impacted by your faith? 


    Thank you for all you do. If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to call me.

    Week One


    Dear Parents,


    Hello! I wanted to remind you about the study we’re doing on what Jesus had to say about our faith. This week, the lesson was titled “The Answer.” In this lesson, we helped students learn that our faith in Jesus is the means by which we find forgiveness and an eternal relationship with Christ. We challenged them to really consider the significance of life through faith in Christ and death in separation from Him.


    We looked at the following Scripture passages: 

    • John 3:16-18

    • John 5:24

    Please take a few minutes this week to read these passages.


    Next Steps . . . 

    During the next week as you have time to talk with your teenager, remember that one way that will help him or her to understand and apply what he or she has learned is to explain it to someone else. Use the following questions to guide your conversation:

    • Are you 100% sure about your standing with God? Do you ever doubt if you are saved or not?

    • Why is it hard sometimes to really visualize the thought of spending eternity separated from God? 

    • Who are the three or four people who mean the most to you whom you don’t think have a relationship with Jesus?

    • What can I do to help you have the confidence to reach out to them and have some meaningful faith discussions?

    Thank you for all you do. If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to call me.

  • Christian Faith and Mental Health

    Lesson 3


    Dear Parents, 


    We just wrapped up our Christian Faith and Mental Health series. This week we focused on how God designed us to live in a community, specifically a community of Christ's followers. In this community, we lift each other and strengthen our faith together. We can do this when we live in God's image of the church, meeting regularly, serving each other's needs, and strengthening each other's faith. 


    We looked at the following scripture passages: 

    • 1 Corinthians 12:25-26
    • Colossians 1:11-14
    • John 16:33
    • 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
    • 2 Timothy 1:7


    Please take a few minutes this week to read these passages.  


    Next steps...

    During the next week, as you have time to talk with your teenager, remember that one way to help them understand and apply what they have learned is to explain it to someone else. Use the following questions to guide your conversation:


    • Do you and your friends feel safe talking about mental health and the struggles of faith in our church? 
    • What hope does God give you to live a life of faith with other believers? 
    • How has the Holy Spirit impacted your mental health? 
    • How would you help your friend understand faith when they feel God chose them to struggle with mental and emotional issues? 

    Thank you for all you do. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me.
