Believe 2015

Parents of Middle School Students,

In case you’ve never heard of Believe before, let me give you a quick overview. It’s a weekend event produced by Christ In Youth, an organization that has been putting together
age-intentional events all over the world for more than 45 years  (you can check out their website at www.ciy.com/believe). It takes place in a large auditorium, where your child will worship alongside thousands of other students their age. It’s literally an experience they’ll get nowhere else. It’s also one of the safest and most well-organized events we can take our students to each year.

This year worship will be led by the nationally recognized Christian band Carrollton. There are also some fun, interactive activities. And best of all, there are messages from some of the nation’s leading youth leaders – people such as Kurt Johnston from Saddleback Church and Brooklyn Lindsey, who’s written books such as “A Parent’s Guide to Understanding Teenage Girls.” These people are masters at communicating with Jr. high students.

Suffice to say, Believe is an investment in your child’s spiritual walk that you’ll be looking back on many years down the road as one of the memory-making moments that hopefully propelled them into a deeper walk with Christ.
