What We're Teaching
UNWRAPPED: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON CHRISTMAS
When you think of Christmas, you probably think about an event — an event that is (hopefully) filled with gifts, food, family, and fun. But what happens when that event isn’t as joyful or peaceful as we wish it were? And is the “event” even what Christmas is about anyway? In this 4-week series, we’ll discover what this season is truly about. It’s about getting ready to receive God’s gift of Jesus, sharing that gift with others, rejoicing in the surprising gifts God gives us, and taking time to enjoy God’s presence.
Tip of the Month
We figured the holidays were the perfect time to share this month’s tip: create a new family tradition. Your time is limited. So enjoy it! And make it count.
Resource of the Month
Parents, get yourself a little something for Christmas this year. We suggest the book, The Sticky Faith Guide for Your Family: Over 100 Practical and Tested Ideas to Build Lasting Faith in Your Kids. Practical and tested? Lasting faith? Sounds good to us.
Question of the Month
We’re always trying to better understand what it’s like to parent a teenager. So here’s what we’re wondering: What’s the BEST thing about parenting your teenager right now?
7-9 pm on Wednesday night for grades 7-12 at Cornerstone on Gatehouse
6:30 pm on Sunday night for grades 9-12 at Cornerstone on Gatehouse
Cornerstone youth is for any students between grades 7 and 12.
What is it?
Our Wednesday nights are high energy for students in grades 7-12. We play big group games, have a snack and talk through a lesson. It's two hours from 7 - 9 pm of loud and crazy fun.
Our Sunday nights are a bit more laid back for students in grades 9-12. There are more conversations and deeper topics. We play board games and card games, we enjoy a snack and talk through a lesson. It's an hour and a half of getting to know each other better and having a good time.
