I hope you all had a great summer. We took 33 students to camp, and saw God work in incredible ways in the lives of our students. We celebrated 2 professions of faith and 3 decisions for baptism. Several of our youth are actively serving in other ministries at Shoreline on Sunday mornings such as Preschool, Children’s, and Worship Ministries. A large number of students also helped out at VBS which saw 200+ kids throughout the week. We are very excited about the spiritual growth of students in our youth group and cannot wait to see what God will continue to do in their lives this next year.
One exciting opportunity coming up for parents at Shoreline is the Parenting Conference September 28-29. We want to encourage all parents to attend this conference as it will equip you to have intentional, gospel-centered conversations with your students about difficult topics they are exposed to on a daily basis. It is a video series led by Dr. Russell D. Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.
We are excited to kick off the start of the school year with some exciting events. If you have any questions about our upcoming events or anything related to youth, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
I am extremely excited about our Christ Centered Parenting Conference this Fall because the essence of Christian parenting is discipleship. This conference is very much focused on how to disciple our kids while doing life together with them (Deuteronomy 6:6-9). You will gain a lot of biblical guidance and practical wisdom to help you teach and relate to your kids. Whether you have children now or you plan to have children at some point in the future, this conference will prepare and benefit you in the task of Christian parenting. I also believe everyone, even those without children, could greatly benefit from the biblical worldview issues addressed in this conference.
Our task as Christian parents is to prepare our children to face the culture with confidence in the Lord and a clear understanding of His Word so that their thinking and character are shaped by the Lord and not the culture. However, sometimes we may feel unprepared to address the many complex cultural issues our children are being faced with on a daily basis. The Christ Centered Parenting Conference is designed to help you as a parent address issues your children are facing from a biblical worldview. Topics include: gender, suicide, depression, anxiety, pornography, same-sex marriage, singleness, dating, marriage, and divorce. As parents, we are always growing in our walk with the Lord and in our role as a parent, and this conference is designed to help us grow even more.
