We need some GAME CHANGERS in ASM!
We are always looking for some AWESOME adults to serve in Student Ministry! Summer is a great time to figure out if this is something that you want to do! I don't think there is anything better than leading, serving, and helping the NEXT GENERATION know God. If this is something that you would like to do, please fill out this form. ASM Leader Interest Form. Filling out this form is not signing your life away, it is just letting us know you are interested.
Make sure you are paying attention to the SUMMER CALENDAR as well as following us on Instagram and Facebook! Because we schedule the Summer months in advance there might be changes to it throughout the Summer, I mean we are only human. So make sure you keep an eye and ear out for those things.
We have started a NEW coed Middle School Small on Sunday mornings during the 11:00 service. We have some great leaders running this group, and it is for 6-8 grade students.
Hotdogs, Hamburgers, NACHO POOL, 9-square, gaga, bounce house, and COLOR WAR!! This will be an awesome event for all Middle School students and their friends! The event is FREE, but we will have a donation box if you like you want to support ASM.
Hotdogs, Hamburgers, NACHO POOL, volleyball, spike ball, corn hole, bring a hammock, capture the flag, and COLOR WAR! This is a great event for all High School students and their friends! This will be a FREE event, but we will have a donation box for anyone who wants to support ASM.
This is going to be a PERFECT night for students to INVITE that one friend that hasn't stepped foot into a church before, or that student that is not involved with ASM. We want to create on-ramps for students to get plugged in to ASM and ultimately plugged in to a relationship with Christ.
Most experts on the family will tell you that, "The family that prays together stays together." But I'd like to suggest a corollary to that principle, "The family that plays together stays together."
Summer is the perfect season for families to rediscover the lost arts of family rest and relaxation -- and it's also the perfect time for families to work on spending plenty of time playing together.
Here are four key reasons why parents should invest in family playtime this summer:
1. Play Builds Family Memories. At your next summer fun family gathering, eavesdrop on the conversations around you. Chances are the majority of the talk is about past family experiences.
2. Play Reduces Family Stress and Tension. Let's face it---we live in some pretty stressful times. During summer, many of us are preoccupied with escape, finding peace, and going on vacation. None of these factors are unhealthy in and of themselves. But when you add them together or experience them for a prolonged period of time, be sure to put away your work and responsibilities and take at least a week of "do-nothing-but-play" vacation time to find some perspective.
3. Play Causes Good Communication. In the routine settings of everyday life, finding the "perfect moment" to have "the big talk" with your kids can feel like an exercise in futility. But in less-structured playful summer moments, you're bound to have more opportunities to talk about "big issues" with your kids.
4. Play Produces Affirmation and Support. When our families play together, everyone gains a deeper sense of belonging, support and community. Summertime offers parents many opportunities to work at creating a strong sense of community within their family.
Families that rest, relax and play together this summer are likely to discover their time together provides a tremendous source of bonding and fun while helping kids to build a future filled with great memories. Don't let this summer pass by without investing in the serious business of family rest, relaxation and play.
