High School DTX (Discipleship Training Xperience)
Life is crazy busy and we can all get worn out pretty easily. We could all use special times where we come together and let the Holy Spirit refuel us through God’s life changing Word so we may be all that He created us to be. That is exactly what High School DTX is here for. We typically meet on the first and third Wednesday evenings of each month at church at 7:00 PM.
Faith In An Anxious World (DTX Series)
Beginning September 2nd we are going to start a new series called Faith In An Anxious World. We don’t need to look far to see that our teenagers are hurting. Anxiety and depression in particular are on the rise, dominating the ways young people talk about their generation. Seventy percent of teenagers in one recent study consider anxiety and depression a “major problem” among their generation. While adults in teenagers’ lives are becoming more aware of these problems, we often aren’t sure how to respond. For the fall semester, we will be using a curriculum from Fuller Youth Institute to help give your student the tools they need to cope with anxiety and depression. Our prayer is that this helps bring greater freedom and health to the teenagers entrusted to our care. Please contact Pastor Anthony with any questions. For more resources, click right here.
