As parents, we long for our kids to develop deep, dynamic Christian faith that “sticks” long term. Research shows, though, that almost half of graduating high school seniors struggle deeply with their faith. Join Pastor Ryan Pixton and Karen Shumaker in the Hospitality Room as we examine strategies to encourage our children and youth’s spiritual growth so that it will stick to them into adulthood.

This is a “church without walls” kind of day! Let’s get out there and reveal the love of Jesus! See you on Saturday! (Note: SNL on April 22 has been cancelled to encourage Youth participation.)
