High School Info (11/14)

High School Happenings @ FirstCovGR

by Josh Hinken on November 14, 2021

Hello Parents,

God has the power and the power is back on at FirstCov! I’ve been anticipating tonight for a couple months now.  TONIGHT is our Student-Led youth group night! It is so good to see our student leaders lead other students!  NEXT SUNDAY is a youth group night, we are going to hear testimonies from our leaders & students.   We will also do a cool activity that connects with our conversation on “Who am I?”.  WEDNESDAY NIGHTS is the “Power of Prayer – Parents of High Schoolers & Young Adults” prayer group from 6:45 – 7:45p in room 103, led by Brooke Johnston.

We are using the new book and teaching material for Sunday nights from Fuller Institute called “3 Big Questions That Change Every Teenager” by Power & Griffin.  Check it out! Amazon . Jeanine Holquist donated 5 copies in the “library”, so take a read sometime.

Blessings! Josh Hinken (616.295.0772 | )(Facebook.com/josh.hinken | Instagram.com/hnkn11).

PARENT CUE APP

  • We’re here to help you parent smarter, not harder. Because raising kids with faith and character doesn’t have to be difficult. You already know everything you need to win at parenting, you just occasionally need the right cue to keep going. Check out this resource and app by Orange: https://theparentcue.org.

SUPPORT

  • Is your child in a sport, marching band, school musical, and/or something else that we can support?? Tell us their schedules!!  Michelle Ludge, the high school leaders and/or I would love to come and support your child. Let us know!

CONNECT

DNA GROUPS

  • What is DNA?  We have a few DNA groups already connecting and encounter Jesus together! More groups to come! What is a DNA group?  DNA groups are an awesome opportunity for a deeper Bible study and a disciple making opportunity for our middle school and high school students outside of our normal weekly gatherings. We are calling it DNA (Discipleship, Nurturing, Accountability). In short, DNA is a process of inviting 2-3 students on a journey to become committed followers of Jesus. The concept is first recognizing that the Holy Spirit is the teacher. Then through a simple process together we will discover Jesus’ commands and stories, engage daily with God’s Word, listen to each other, and hopefully grow our faith in a new, and meaningful way.  Then we will ask… Who is next?! The hope is to equip our students so that they would be able to initiate their own DNA group.

OUR MISSION/VISION

  • FirstCovGR Student Ministry is a community of teens being transformed. We want them to know God and become fully committed followers of Jesus Christ to bring glory and honor with their lives. We hope and expect to raise up spiritual leaders to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
  • We are a community of students from 9th grade - 12th grade. It’s a place for fun! It’s a place for students to connect in small groups with peers and leaders. It’s a place to explore the story of God and to find a place within it. It’s a place to experience the life-changing power of Jesus through acts of service. It’s a place to express real faith in the real world. It’s an experience not to be missed.

REGISTRATION/WAIVER

  • You must have a current FirstCovGR Student Registration/Waiver for August 2021 - August 2022 submitted to participate at FirstCovGR's student ministry events. Please fill out one form per student. (Form: https://bit.ly/student_waiver)
