It’s That Time Again!
Register your girls now for Tween Time 2014-2015
Don’t forget to register your daughters for another great year of Tween Time! We have planned an AMAZING year of lessons and activities you won’t want to miss!
The website is updated with new information–2014-2015 calendar, special events, curriculum, leaders, and weekly meeting locations and times. So, explore the website (particularly under the “Tween Time Basics” tab), and get excited about what God is doing in our very own neighborhood!
Remember that it helps us to plan groups when we know who is coming. Please support us by responding before school starts if possible! Our first meetings will take place after Labor Day.
Make sure to let us know if you have preferences regarding leader, location, or friends. We will take that into consideration when forming groups.
Please pass this information along to anyone you think may be interested in participating. New friends welcome!

As always, our registration fees cover the basics, so if you feel moved to give above and beyond toward our ministry, we would be grateful. This year, we would like to purchase Bibles for several of our locations. We found that when the translations are the same (and the page numbers are the same), it really helps our lesson time. Also, we were able to use budget surplus last year to provide some partial scholarships to girls for our spring retreat at Pine Cove. It would be lovely to be able to do that again this year. Thanks in advance for your financial support.
Please call me with any questions I haven’t answered with the web info. I can’t WAIT to get started! I am pumped about what God has placed on the hearts of our leaders to share with your girls. Again, I thank you for the opportunity to get to know them and to share life and God’s love with them.
I’d like to share an article that I read recently that resonated with me and lit a fire under me, too: “3 Common Traits of Youth Who Don’t Leave the Church”. You can read it at:http://www.faithit.com/3-common-traits-of-youth-who-dont-leave-the-church/
The article affirms that our first goal is to give our girls the opportunity to receive the life-changing truth about Jesus Christ so that HIS SPIRIT IN THEM will continue the work of transformation necessary to give them all of the good God has planned for them. Without real conversion, everything we teach them–even biblically–is just behavior modification. Secondly, it charges youth leaders and parents alike to do the work of EQUIPPING our kids to live out their faith so that when they leave home, the motivation they have to live the Christian life comes from within.
I know our Tween Time team pledges to do our part–will you partner with us and your local church to do yours? What is your family’s next step closer to God? How can we help you take that next step?
Praying for each of you! Happy last few weeks of summer!
