Note to Parents about Upcoming Collide Series: PurpleIn the student ministry at FBG we feel very strongly that parents are the most crucial factor in a child's spiritual development. On this page is information about our Parenting Teens Life Group, a few great online resources, and the opportunity to sign up for our weekly parent newsletter. Feel free to contact any of our youth ministry staff with any questions that you might have. Parenting Teens Life Group Sundays 9:30am in the Collide Room We firmly believe that Youth Ministry is a three-fold endeavor. It is one part teenagers, one part youth workers, and one part parents. Unfortunately, there are very few opportunities for parents to be together and to learn how to parent more effectively. In order, to meet needs of parents in the community, we recently started a small group Bible study for parents. It quickly went from five people to thirty people to now having 80+ every week. That reinforced the vision God gave us to provide an opportunity for parents to come together for Bible study and for an opportunity to talk about our struggles and our victories as parents. We also know that statistics are bearing out that students who are involved in church make better decisions, are less likely to be in trouble, and are more likely to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. We’ve had a great small group Bible study for our teenagers for years. By having this ministry for our parents we will be able to have more students involved in Bible study, too. It’s a win-win situation for everyone in the family!
