4 Reasons ALL Parents should attend the Parent/Leader Luncheon


On Sunday, January 6th, the Grove will be hosting what we call a Parent/Small Group Leader Luncheon. This is for all parents and small group leaders who are connected in the Grove student ministry. If you are not signed up for the luncheon, I want you to consider R.S.V.P. right now! Here are 5 Reasons you should attend:
Here are 4 reasons why you should R.S.V.P. today for the Parent/Leader Luncheon:

  1. To Get fed physically- We want all parents and Leaders to come and leave full! We will have tons of food as we always do, and we need you to come and eat up. I would recommend not eating on Saturday, January 5th to save up some room for the pot luck meal 🙂 We do ask that each family sign up to bring a dish when you R.S.V.P.
  2. To get fed spiritually- One thing that we do is share a quick thought from God’s Word. I try to always be Bible centered in our student ministry, and I want this to be true in the way that we approach students, but also in the way that we approach parents.
  3. To get fed practically- One thing that we do at the luncheon is share something pertaining to student culture of today, and discuss it, and how we can handle it with our students. This time, we will be discussing “My student and the media they consume.” We will be discussing social media, pornography, television, music, etc. It all falls under the area of media, and we want to see from the Bible how to handle our kids and the media that they consume.
  4. To get fed relationally- One of the favorite things for me and the luncheons that we have is the relationships that I am able to build with parents and leaders. Also, I love to see relationships forming and strengthening between the parents and their child’s small group leader. If you are unsure at the other points, let this one convince you to R.S.V.P. and meet new people. Let me say that I believe it is important for the parents to have a strong relationship with their teenager’s small group leader and youth pastor.

The luncheon is held on Sunday (January 6) from 12:15 (after the 11:00 am service) until 2:00 pm. The cost is free, but we ask that each family bring a dish for the meal. You will be asked what you are bringing when you R.S.V.P. Childcare is provided free of charge! You can check us out on Facebook if you would like by going here. You can R.S.V.P. below:
