What’s Your Enneagram – Students

January 23rd & 30th – After Church in the Attic
 
It seems like everyone is talking about the Enneagram these days. Everyone wants to know what number you are! While we do not believe that the Enneagram is biblical, we do think that it (and other personality tests) can be a helpful tool in helping you understand some of the ways that God has specifically wired you. It can also be an incredible resource in learning what other people value who are different than you. We have found that the Enneagram offers great insight into how to minister to others in a more effective way!
 
We have had several students interested in learning more about the Enneagram, so we’re going to offer a 2 part series that breaks down:
1. What the 1-9 types are and what your specific gifts, strengths and weaknesses are.
2. How to understand the other numbers so that you can more effectively minister to your friends.
 
We can’t wait to share what we’ve been learning with you. The Enneagram has been so helpful to us in our ministry – we know you’ll find it fascinating.
 
Lunch will be provided for both sessions – just let Beth or Ryan know that you’re coming!

Thoughts and Prayers – Students

LAUNCHING JANUARY 9TH @ 9:30
 
It seems like everyone is sending thoughts and prayers nowadays – but just because this idea is common doesn’t mean it’s comfortable. We’ve all wondered if we’re getting prayer “right.” Is there even a wrong and right way to pray? In this series, we’ll discuss the simple power of honesty and authenticity when it comes to our personal experience of prayer.
 
Join us this Sunday at 9:30 in the Attic and let’s talk about it. Plus, we’ve got Panera bagels to kick off the 2022 Sunday School year!

Distinct Series for Students

LAUNCHING WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12 @ 6:15
 
WHO ARE YOU? Have you ever felt like you’re still figuring out who you are, what you’re good at, or why you’re here? In our next series, the stories of Jesus, John the Baptist, and the words of Paul, will help us see why discovering who Jesus is helps us discover who we’re meant to be. Not only is Jesus is distinct from anyone who has ever lived, but God made us distinct too, with distinct gifts we can use to serve God and others, and unique distinctions that are worth celebrating.

Feedback From Students

This Sunday, we’re asking YOU what you want to talk about next year. We have burning questions to ask you, and we want your honest feedback!
 
We’ll end Sunday School a little early for you to enjoy the Churchwide Christmas Breakfast in the fellowship hall!

Joy to the World

Jesus BRINGS joy. Jesus IS joy.
Join us for a discussion on how we as Christians should live out the JOY that Jesus gives us. (I’ll also bring some joy in the form of Christmas treats!)

Getting Ready for M-Fuge 2022

WE’RE GOING BACK TO MFUGE PHILADELPHIA THE WEEK OF JULY 11th – 16th!!! (It feels SO good to say it!) We hope your student will join us for a week of service, worship, Bible study, and fun.
 
There will be more information in the coming months, but here’s what you need to know right now. The total cost of camp is $375. This covers the cost of lodging in a college dorm at Eastern University, meals for the week, transportation, and other materials. Like years past, we have adjusted prices for families with multiple children to help with the cost. ($325 for second child, $275 for third, etc.)
 
In order to secure your student’s spot for camp, Beth needs a non-refundable deposit of $50 by January 23rd. We have reserved spots for our group until this date. You can always sign up and pay your deposit at a later date, but there is no guarantee that there will be availability. Also, you can choose to pay for the total expense of camp all at once, or you can make payments if that’s easier for your family. Whatever works for you! Final payments will be due in June at our Parent Meeting. (Date TBA)

Christmas Party 2021 – Students

We’re celebrating the season with our annual Christmas party! There will be dinner, games, a gift exchange, and then we’re going GLOW ICE SKATING at Chilled Ponds!
 
The cost is FREE, just bring a wrapped $5 gift for our gift exchange.
 
Invite your friends, and wear your most festive (and warm) Christmas attire! (Don’t forget socks for ice skating – trust me on this.)
