Invite your friends to come kick off the summer with us!
Join us July 6-9, 2015 as we head to downtown St. Louis to work with a great organization called LOVEtheLOU. We’ll help local churches, serve the homeless and work in several under-resourced communities to bring the love & hope of Jesus. Trip cost is $120. The deadline to register and pay is 6/14. Email us at ChrisS@wschurch.org for more details or to register. Space is limited so signup soon!
In a world where students are bombarded with false messages about love and sex every day, it is vital that they hear the truth about God’s plan. This Sunday, April 12 we will begin a new three week series in The Hub called Blurred Lines. During the series we’ll cover three big questions:
- God’s Plan for Sex & Dating – How far is too far? Who can I date? When is it OK to date?
- The Friendzone – How do I begin to develop healthy relationships in all areas of my life now?
- Complete Purity – How do we take God’s call to sexual purity beyond just not having sex before marriage but make it a way of life to avoid lust, etc?
Parents: Obviously this series will address topics a little more sensitive than an average Sunday. They will all be Jr. High age appropriate but if parents have questions or concerns they are free to contact ChrisS@wschurch.org. If you feel your student isn’t ready to hear this material they are welcome to attend adult worship with you instead during the series.
As always, if you’re curious about what students are learning, you can always download our podcast and hear for yourself. (Note: Some podcast messages may be the high school version of the message.)
Parents are encouraged to come Wednesday, April 29 from 7:00pm to 8:00pm in The Hub. We’ve invited Chris Sandel (Family Ministries Director) and Josh LeVeque (IT Director) to follow up on our recent AXIS Parent Night by sharing some practical advice for guiding your child through a world of cell phones and social media. Free childcare is available but space is limited so RSVP for childcare here ASAP if needed.
If you missed the class, you can still access the audio recording and several great resources at www.WestSideVelocity.org/POP.
If you’re not already, make sure you follow us on Twitter & Instagram. It’s a great way to get a glimpse of what our students are up to and also stay current with upcoming trips & events. We’re updating much more regularly now so you don’t want to miss out!
