Summer 2020 Event Calendar
"Thoughts For Young Men" | July 8-27, 2020 (7-12 grade boys)
In this small group study we will be reading through J.C. Ryle's book "Thoughts For Young Men". Although it was written in the mid 1800's the wisdom from this short book is just as transformative and practical for young men today as it was back then. It's definitely a must read for every boy that strives to become a real Man of God. During our time together we'll eat lunch and fellowship as we talk through the study guide that accompanies the book. The $10 cost of this study covers the price of the book which will be purchased for each boy that registers.
"This Changes Everything" | July 8 - 29, 2020 (7-12 grade girls)
This girls only small group study will be reading and discussing "This Changes Everything" by Jaquelle Crowe. Who knows the struggles, pressures, and expectations of teenagers better than a teenager? Well, this book, written by a teenager for teenagers, is deeply theological yet practical as it addresses how the Gospel transforms every aspect of the teen years. During their time together the girls will enjoy some yummy desserts as they talk through the details of what is covered in the pages of this book. The $10 cost of this study covers the price of the book which will be purchased for each girl that registers.

Small Group "Night Out" | August 2020 | Believe it or not, our small group volunteers miss being with your students, so we wanted to make a point to get them all together before the school year kicks back off again.
