Parent Newsletter January 2020

Hello Parents!

Can you believe it? It is a new year, and even a new decade! For all that God has done in the years past, we are believing there is more and we can't wait to see what He does in your student and in your family in year 2020!

January Series: Shadows Over Spotlights

We are so excited for this series! Many times we look towards the spotlight and being seen but God works in us and speaks to us often in the shadows. We will learn about what our attitudes should be like in the shadow seasons of our life and how God can use it all for His glory!


We are kicking off 2020 with one of our favorite events of the year: Everyone Night! This is a night to bring the whole YTH family together to lift up the name of Jesus in one space!

  • Where: River Valley Church- Apple Valley (14898 Energy Way, Apple Valley, MN 55124)
  • When: Friday, January 17th, 2020 // 6:00PM-10:00PM

Worship Night

At many of our campuses, there will be a worship night happening on Friday, January 24th starting at 6:30PM. These nights are great for you to come together at your campus and worship Jesus together. We would love to worship with you all!

Sisterhood Night: January 31st

For any of our ladies, our first Sisterhood night of the year is happening on Friday, January 31st at 7:00PM. All mothers, grandmothers, nieces, sisters, daughters and friends are invited to this special women's service at your campus! We will be hearing from our own Pastor Becca Ketterling that night!
