Parent Newsletter AUGUST 2020

Hello Parents!

Thank you for partnering with us in ministry this summer! The Lord is continuing to do great things in this season and we still have a full month of YTH in the summer to look forward to! We want to keep seeing your student every Wednesday night as their walk with Jesus grows deeper and as they are plugged into the community here!

August Series: Kingdom Culture

We see “cancel culture” all around us in the world today. As Christ followers we don’t want to live by the rules of Cancel Culture, because Jesus offers a better way! When we are following Jesus, we get to live in Kingdom Culture. Kingdom Culture is powerful because it allows us to live to a higher standard and shows us that people are not cancelled because there is always the opportunity for redemption.

COVID Protocol and Mask Mandate at YTH

We want you to know that we are still keeping your student's safety as a top priority and are continuing to be aware of how to honor our church and State with restrictions. With that being said, we want as many people to feel welcome as possible. We are complying with the Governor's mask mandate order but we are not policing it. There are several protected reasons some cannot wear masks and it is not our job to invade their privacy. For more information and details, click the link button below:
