Tweens & Teens at Restoration
When asked what they like about our church, tweens in our congregation consistently said
“it’s small…in a great way,”
“it’s easy to get to know everyone,”
“you get to know everyone because you are smushed up against them [in the pew].”
These kids are longing for – and finding – community in our church, just like the rest of us!
Now we want to create intentional time and space for these relationships to grow. Staying true to their wishes, we’ll start small with a few informal activities. We want these kids to identify with Restoration, connect with their peers, and have a safe place to wrestle through the issues of being a Christian teen in Northern Virginia.
Please join us for a meeting on Tuesday January 26th at Heather and Roger Raber’s home as we pray and talk through ideas for a middle school ministry at Restoration. Since we’re dealing with teens, we need all the guidance the Holy Spirit can give us! We’ll spend time brainstorming about a long-term vision for this ministry, and also pray about more immediate & smaller actions we can take now to start us off. Anyone with a heart for these kids is welcome. But please RSVP (in a comment to this blog) so we know to expect you! Adults only – leave the kids to dream at home.
