Here are 5 questions from Sunday's youth group lesson for following up with your teen... (3/26/17)

1) What's one thing you learned from Sunday's lesson at youth group?

2) I understand you talked about the woman at the well that Jesus met in John 4. What do you think made her go and tell everyone in her town about Him?

3) What's something that has scared you about talking to your friends about your trust in God? Why does that scare you?

4) How can I be a better example and help to you with this lesson?  

5) What was your Next Step from Sunday's lesson at youth group? Do you want/need help with it? How can I pray for you as a result of Sunday's lesson?

  The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (CPYU) is a nonprofit organization committed to building strong families by serving to bridge the cultural-generational gap between parents and teenagers. All kinds of great resources for parents are available here.

A great way to understand teens today and what they're going through. We ask all of our leaders to read this book and think it will help you too to gain a greater understanding of youth and youth culture today! Purchase it here.

  Here's a snapshot on what we think about youth ministry around here.

It'll help you understand better why we do what we do and how we can work together.


As a youth ministry we want to be a great partner to you and your family. Please feel free to contact us to talk about that process. We are honored to serve with you in helping your teens know God.


Be His,
