I Want to Talk With My Teen About Movies, Music & More – Book Review

On September 14, 2011, in Middle School - EXIT, Students, by Shoreline


I recently have had many conversations with parents seeking wisdom in the area media choices with their students. This can be a hot button issue in many homes and I always recommend  thinking through your approach to this issue before confronting or challenging your student. In the pages of  I want to Talk With My Teen About Movies, Music & More you will find a wealth of information on the pitfalls and challenges you may face. I would highly recommend this book to all parents.

Middle School Missions Trip Update 8

On August 1, 2011, in Middle School - EXIT, Students, by Shoreline

This years middle school missions trip has been incredible. The students have worked hard and shown much love to the people of Corvallis Church and the City of Corvallis. As our last act of service we helped Corvallis Church put on their second preview service. This involved outdoor setup of a stage, tables, chairs, and sound system. It was more work then it sounds as much of the equipment was recently acquired and need a fair amount of repair and prep to get put together. The group also spent time over the last few days going door to door with flyers inviting neighbors to come out for the picnic dinner and worship service. During the service it was exciting to have Shorelines Ryan McKalson lead worship through song. This was Ryan’s first time doing something of this nature and, even though he had to shake of some nerves, he did an amazing job and impressed all around. After the worship service we helped pack up and load the trailer.
It had been a long week of work so that night we went down town to a gelato shop for a relaxing treat. If you want to hear a crazy story make sure to ask one of the leaders or students about the gelato dance party. This is something no one will forget soon, including those working.
Were on the road heading to redding tonight for a time of reflection before we finish our drive home tomorrow.
Thank you all so much for your prayers!
