Well, every season must come to an end and our team is declaring an end to the season of no support for the high school senior transitioning out of high school and into the next phase of their lives. I give you a new little series we call, "Move."
It's very simple. Move is a collection of our graduates congealed into like-minded groups based upon the next phase in their life. Whether a student is pursuing their education at a state school, a private school, a Christian college, or the workforce, we are creating groups for the class of 2011.
We are going to meet on four Sundays with the intent of preparing students, through conversation with current students for the next phase in their lives. Addressing topics like:
-What should I expect?While I can't tell you how this model will work in the long run, I can tell you that I'm excited to begin trying to find practical ways to better equip high school graduates for the next step in their life; one that they are most likely, ill-prepared for and have absolutely no idea what awaits them in the next year of their lives.
-How do I manage myself and my parents?
-What ministries or church opportunities are available where I'm going?
-How do I deal with the social issues (sex, alcohol, drugs, life)?
