Sr. High Update

Hey Parents!

A lot is going on with our Sr. High ministry here at Northside. First of all, I need you all to understand the topic we are conquering next. It is one of the top most relevant topics for Sr. High students these days: Relationships and Dating. This focus is titled “Him + Her,” and yes, we will inevitably be preaching and having separate discussion groups on the specific topic of sex! If you would like to talk to me about content, scripture used, or anything else. Please contact me via phone or in person. I prefer face to face, or phone communication when dealing with such a subject in order to minimize any possible miscommunication. My cell phone is 66-351-5404.

Also, CIY MOVE is coming up quick! We are going to MOVE in Joplin, MO this year for our week of CIY. For Freshmen parents, CIY MOVE is pretty much like a weeks worth of the CIY BELIEVE trip your student took in Jr. High. For anyone else that is confused as to what CIY is, I offer this brief explanation, and invite questions:

CIY(Christi in youth) MOVE is a week long conference that is held on college campuses throughout the United States (Ozark Christian College in Joplin, MO in our case). During this week your student will be a part of dynamic worship, deep and challenging teaching, small groups, lots and lots of fun, and most importantly, a call to kingdom work. For more info visit

You can also find a great movie telling you what move is all about at

This trip is schedule for the 2nd of June through the 7th. The cost is going to be $200. We urge you not to let money hold you back though. If you honestly don’t have the funds, we will work with you to get your student on the bus to Joplin. Money is a non-issue. As I said earlier, if you have any questions give me a call or send me an email at

Until next time,
