6th Grade Girls’ Promise Class Info – Class Kick-off this Wednesday @ 6:30 in the Annex!

Dear Parents of 6th Grade Young Ladies,

Starting Sunday, March 8th at 9:00 in the West Wing, the Middle School Ministry will be offering a special class experience for our young ladies entitled, “Promise”. Leading our discussion will be Shelley Nance, Nancy Osman, Jenni Bowlin, and a few other guests. Our 6th grade LifeGuards will continue be a part of this class time as well.

Why “Promise”?
We want to provide a class time for our girls to share and to discuss the awesome privilege it is to be a young woman of faith, integrity, purity and servant leadership. We want to provide an environment that will create a passion for God’s best in their lives. The curriculum materials used to facilitate our conversations are by Youth Specialties and author Jen Rawson.

Parent Offerings
This year, in addition to classes with the girls, we would like to offer a few classes especially for parents covering important topics in adolescence.

The schedule will be as follows:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 25 – Class Kick-off for Mothers/Daughters (at church in the Annex 6:30-7:30)
  • Sunday, April 5 – Easter Sunday (No Class)
  • Sunday, April 12 – Class for Mothers: “Fostering Good Self-Esteem” with Jenni Bowlin & Melissa Gerlach
  • Sunday, April 19 – Daddy/Daughter Class
  • Sunday, April 26 – Class for All Parents: “Teens and Technology” with Jesse Baker

CLOSING PROMISE CEREMONY on SUNDAY, MAY 17, 10:30 a.m.
Parents, you will be invited to attend and participate in the special closing ceremony of your daughter’s “Promise” experience. We will send an invitation at the appropriate time.

Parents, we want to partner with you as you nurture the spiritual walk of your children. We consider it an honor to be on this journey with you.

Attention parents of girls attending the lock-in (retreat) tonight.
Due to inclement weather, we are opening the church at 2:00 if you would like to drop of your girls early. This way you will have enough time to get back home before the weather gets bad.

Important Girls’ Retreat/Lock-in Info

Hey homegirls!

Got some info for you concerning your upcoming retreat-turned-lock-in evening of excellence!

You’ll be staying in the West Wing (of our church not the West Wing of the White House), so that means there aren’t bunk beds for all the girls in our youth group.

Therefore, please bring an air mattress, bed roll, or inflatable sleeping pad if you have one. If you have more than one of those things, it would be very kind of you to bring all you have for those that are without a nice cushy place to lay them down to sleep.

Let us know if you have any questions, and YOU GO GIRL!

That’s a West Wing reference, and female empowerment, all in one. I’m ON FIRE.

FREE Middle School Outing Tomorrow Night

Lipscomb will hit the court this Thursday against conference rival Stetson University, and we’ll be there to enjoy the show!

If your middle school student would like to attend, we’ll buy the tickets, all I need you to do is…

  1. Email me right now to let me know they’re coming. 
  2. Meet me near the columns at church at 6pm on Thursday to carpool to LU.
  3. Send them with any money they might need for concessions.

That’s it! And if you would like to attend as well, just let me know! We can get you a ticket too.

We can take as many students as possible, but please let me know by Thursday morning at the absolute latest!

Men’s Ministry Gathering this Sunday @ 8am

Men's Ministry

Hello WoodmontYG Family!

Men’s Ministry is hosting a gathering this Sunday at 8am in room 205E for men of ALL AGES. There will be donuts, Jesse will be leading worship, Damon Cathey will be delivering a message, and it will be a great time for the men of Woodmont to spend some time in fellowship with one another.

The Men’s Ministry doesn’t have any sort of age limit, so we would love for fathers and sons to join us as we seek a greater sense of brotherhood and mentorship in our church family.

Hope to see you Sunday at 8!
