Parent FAQs:

What do these gatherings/check-ins look like?

One-on-One Check-ins
These will happen either in-person or virtually/via phone. We want each kid to feel connected with their leader, and we want them to know that we think of them as more than just ministry projects. The goal is to develop relationships with substance that extend beyond youth group gatherings. As a parent, you can expect that a leader will reach out to you before reaching out to your young one. We may offer to take a walk, drop by with a snack or whatever you’re comfortable with. You, the parent, are the first point of contact in your family, and your comfort level is the barometer our leaders will use in establishing and building relationships with your student(s).

Small Group Bible Study
These will happen once a month. We’ll build small groups based on age and location within the city (Please fill out the contact survey to help facilitate this). These neighborhood groups will be size-capped to ensure we are reasonably safe. We will also have an online option for kids and leaders who aren’t comfortable meeting in-person. Again, this is an option you can make in our survey below.

Online Youth Group
All leaders and students gather via Zoom to catch up, play games, and talk about Jesus. We send out the meeting link each week. Be sure to send us your contact info through the survey, so we can keep you in the loop!
