WHO AM I?
This series is a broad stroke series that will take a large question and answer it with small details in Scripture. People question themselves all the time in their thoughts, actions and words. The biggest questions are: Who am I, why am I hear and where do I go to find these things out? Throughout this series, we will drive home the point that God created you uniquely and wonderfully. As well as the fact that He designed us to seek Him to find our identities.
The series is based on Matthew 16:13-20 and the key them is, "Once we properly define who Jesus is, He will define who you are." In other words, our identity begins and ends in Jesus. When we understand that He is the source of liberty, then and only then, we can walk in true freedom.
The actual groups launch is Sunday, September 9th. With that said, we have been asked to help set up on Saturday morning/afternoon. I will provide more details as the time gets closer.
RY Mission Trip 2019: Dominican Republic
We are working on providing more missions opportunities and have fallen in love with the people in The Dominican Republic. Keep an eye out for more details in the next couple of months!
Here's a checklist for parents to use in the run-up to the new school year that can help make your home less "back-to-stress" and more "back-to-school."
Academics: Encourage your children to do their best, learn all they can, and do the best they can do. Intervene when they do not, and affirm them when they live up to their academic potential.
Anxiety: It's normal for students to feel stress over the upcoming school year. Make your home a calming, secure environment and reassure kids that their feelings are normal.
Calendar: Create a family calendar helps everyone keep up-to-date on what's going on and to help avoid scheduling conflicts.
Connect: Establish connections with school faculty, administrators, and staff who can help with your questions and provide direction for school-related issues as they arise.
Diet: Establish expectations for a healthy diet for your student. Think through breakfast and lunch preparation responsibilities.
Family Dinners: Set a schedule for regular family dinnertimes during the school year. This will help maintain family connections and allows for staying current with what's going on in each other's lives.
Homework: Establish expectations for your child regarding daily homework. Create a reasonable homework routine that allows for completion of daily assignments.
Physical Activity: Plan now to ensure your child has opportunities for regular, adequate exercise.
Scheduling: Remember the adage, no one can do everything. Help your kids set reasonable activity levels for participation in sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities.
Set a Positive Tone: Start talking positively about the new school year: classes, friends, and activities. Create positive anticipation.
Shopping: Get an early start by taking advantage of back-to-school sales now and to avoid the stress of shopping at the last minute.
Sleep: Adjust bed and wake-up times to create healthy school-year sleep patterns before the first day of school.
Transportation: If traveling by school or public bus, be sure to confirm bus stops and schedules. If carpooling, remember to connect and confirm schedules with the other parents involved.
