In April we are still going through the Sermon on the Mount. As we get closer to the summer, let me give you a heads up on two things. One, our last night of Blast & Ignite is on May 18th. Two, May is what we call “Sneak Peak” month. That’s when we invite the now 5th graders who will be in Blast in the fall to come on any/all Wednesday nights in May to see what we’re about. We also the option for the now 8th graders to hang out with Ignite since next year that will be their group. So I think it’d be a big help to encourage, not demand, your son/daughter to be friendly with the new people who might show up.
Here’s a quick overview of the month:
Spring is here and summer’s right around the corner. Teenagers will hear summer and think “No School!” “Free time!” “Nothing to do!” After a long year in school, that’s understandable. Let me encourage you to take some time and talk with your son/daughter about the summer. Ask two simple questions to get a conversation started. “What do you want to do this summer?” and “How can I help you so you enjoy, but not waste, the summer?” Most likely you and your son/daughter will have different ideas of what “not waste” means, but this is a good opportunity to work on communication by clarifying terms.
