Parent Update 2/26

We finished our second week in our series on Dating this past week. Our focus was on what it looks like for students to have healthy boundaries before they begin a dating relationship. As well, we talked about approaching dating from a “slow and steady” pace, not the culture’s pace of jumping in quickly and expecting heartbreak. As always, if you would like any of the notes from these messages, please let me know! I […]

Parent Update 2/19

It has been a great week of ministry as we have gone full force into the book of Song of Solomon. We had some encouraging conversations about what it looks like for students to begin to prepare their hearts and minds before they even start the race of “finding love.” Our focus for week one of our series was on pursuing our relationship with Jesus first and foremost and being attracted to someone of the […]

Parent Update 2/12

In the month of February we take the time to talk about love, dating, relationships, marriage, and sex at Thirst and 180. I believe it is extremely important that students form their views about these issues, not from the culture around them, but from God’s Word. To be honest, culture screams so many lies in their face about true love and intimacy, and whether they are 11 or 18, we know our students are thinking […]

Upcoming Men’s Retreat

On March 6th & 7th the men of Calvary will be on retreat in Cedar Lake, IN. Our own Sunu Thomas will lead us in a weekend of refreshment, encouragement, and biblical teaching. This will be an excellent opportunity for us men to decompress and reconnect over an extended period of time. Get away and relax. Invest in yourself and others. The suggested offering is $75, but this is just a number. Don’t let cost keep you from attending. For […]

Parent Update 1/22

We are only ONE DAY away from our Junior High Winter Retreat!!! I have said this to numerous people…I cannot wait to see what God does in the hearts and lives of these students. Please be praying for our group going out this weekend, praying that God would open up their hearts and they would be sensitive to whatever He is saying to them. Pray for safety over the entire retreat, from leaving here tomorrow […]
