Village Kids: Making Young Disciples

Students of all ages can be hard to connect with. Whether they are related to you or you are pouring into their life from a ministry standpoint, building relationships with them can be hard work. But it’s worth it. So, how do we meet them where they are at? What questions can we ask to start getting them to open up? These discipleship relationships will pour into Eternity, it’s never too late to strengthen your connection. Come to April’s discussion on building connections with our children and teens. Interim Forge director Abby Hanrahan, a graduate of Moody Bible Institute, will share from her heart about the vital need for connection between parent and child.

Vacation Bible School 2023
Save the Date for July 17-21
We are engaged in an epic battle for the hearts and minds of our youth. Every day, they’re bombarded with lies about who they are, who their Creator is, and where their salvation comes from. Thankfully, God has given his children armor to wear in this battle between truth and lies, light and darkness, good and evil. With Keepers of the Kingdom, our kids will learn how they can be part of God’s kingdom through salvation in his Son and will be equipped with the armor of God to become Keepers of the Kingdom who stand strong in today’s battle for truth. Help us fight this epic battle by registering to volunteer now. Student registration for Vacation Bible School will open in April 2023.
Bartlett Property: Future Possibilities
