Parenting is hard work. Late nights. Early mornings. Driving kids all over town…EVERY day! Not even mentioning the emotional struggles we, as parents, often have to deal with. Parenting is also one of the greatest adventures of our lives, creating memories that last a lifetime.

 

You’re not alone, both in your joy and in your struggle, as a parent. We encourage you to utilize these parent resources that go along with what your children are learning on weekends.

 


NextGen Jungle Preschool Resources


Each month we provide you with a Parent CUE.  What’s a CUE?  It’s a prompt. A nudge to talk about God, faith, life or to just have fun together.  It’s a way to incorporate conversations about God and His big story into everyday moments—during mealtime, while playing a game outside, and in the car (based on Deuteronomy 6).  These CUEs will help you do three things:

 

            Connect to God’s story.

            Uncover something about life.

            Experience something together.

 

Note:  You can also download the Parent CUE App on your smartphone, available for iOS and Android.


Parent Card for Preschoolers


At the beginning of each month, a new Parent Card is available for download; these cards highlight what we’re learning that month. 

Suggestions for using these resources:

Help your children learn their memory verses every month.
Grab a preschool Bible and read the story we talked about on Sunday with your children.
Do one of the simple and fun hands-on activities we highlight each week.
Pray with your children every night as you tuck them in.

For Parents

Pick up a parent card each month or download it below. The front of the card has everything you need to know about what your child is learning -- monthly memory verse, Bible stories, and bottom lines to go along with those stories each week. On the back of the card, you'll find parent "cues" that help you make the most of everyday moments to instill faith and character in the hearts of your children. (Based on Deuteronomy 6:7)

 

For NextGen Kids

Help your child have some “God time” each week. There are four different devotions on each GodTime card. Each devotion is designed to be done on a different day. 

For Kids: God Time Devotional


 

NextGen Middle & High School Resources 


As your student transitions from adolescence into adulthood, we want to partner with you and equip you to lead at home.  We do this through special events, home resources, social media, and weekly parent emails.

Note:  You can also download the Parent CUE App on your smartphone, available for iOS and Android.


Current Sunday Series:
"WHAT'S THE CATCH?"

 

This weekend we will be kicking off a two week series called “What’s the Catch.” Temptation is a tricky thing—it always comes with a catch waiting to trip us up. But with temptation all around us, how do we avoid getting caught in it’s trap. In this series, we will find that, although there may be a catch to every temptation, there’s also always a way out. It’s our prayers that our middle & high school students will always chose to flee temptation with God’s help!

Here’s what the next 2 weeks will look like in the “What’s the Catch” series

Week 1: June 17
Look for the hook
This week, we’ll see that we can avoid getting lured in and caught.


Week 2: June 24
God wants to give you a yes that makes it possible to say no.
This week, we’ll discover that, wen we say no in the face of temptation, we’re really saying yes to what God promises us later.
