Pastries with Parents: E.N.G.A.G.E.D. Seven Steps to Raising Christ Centered Kids in a Conventional World
We are beginning a series, Raising Engaged Kids, available to us through RightNow Media. We will view one segment each month. Through this series we will discuss- How do we equip our kids to live authentic, meaningful, Christ-centered lives in a conventional world? RNM states that this series, "Deeply rooted in Christ-centered theology and backed up by insight from the largest and longest study of over 100,000 members of Generation Z, Raising Engaged Kids equips parents and caregivers with specific tools to see God work in and through our families.
In this 9-part series, you will receive specific and practical insight that will equip you to identify God's purpose for your role and provide you with principles and a process that will transform your parenting and provide you with new freedom and fulfillment as a parent."
If you can't regularly join us during this time, please take time to view the series on your own, as it is an exceptional resource. Every family in our community has access through NCCS to RightNow Media. This is an excellent resource for Bible studies, sermons, and Christian programming.Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in discipling your children.You can find the video series at https://app.rightnowmedia.org/content/details/395510.
NOTE: December Pastries with Parents will be on Dec. 8 at 8:15am.

Local Churches for Those Needing a Place of Worship for Their Family
2022-23 School Verse Passage
Ephesians 6:13-17 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
REMINDER: We are asking parents to put their child(ren)'s names in articles of clothing, on water bottles, etc., to easily identify personal items brought to school. We have VERY limited space for a Lost and Found space, so we will not be holding on to items more than a week. We will donate any items to a charity at the end of each week, unless they are clearly marked with a student name and we can get it to the student on the same day.
