What if the church partnered with parents to minister to teenagers and bring them up with a solid foundation of Biblical Values? That is what the High School Ministry of Christ Church at Grove Farm is all about. Our desire is to build strong relationships between parents and our staff and volunteers to better disciple teenagers.
RESOURCES FOR PARENTS
Having Trouble getting your child to Youth Group?
This is a battle that many parents face. It's tough to be new, and we fear what we may not understand. Will I make friends there? Will they be weird? Will it be fun? We have helped dozens of parents walk through this journey with their kids and would be happy to help you make a battle plan to integrate your child into our family. Just contact us.
One of our parents who has walked this journey herself wrote an open letter as a resource others who may be fighting this battle. Read the letter by CLICKING HERE.
Center for Parent and Youth Understanding
Our Ministry partners with Walt Mueller and the CPYU to better understand teens and the culture they live in. We want to help you be the best parents you can be by providing all of the resources we are learning from. Please visit CPYU.org to take a look at their resources. Then, let's meet together to learn from each other and partner with each other to take your children further!
