fuse* student ministries

A fuse creates a link in an electrical circuit – between the source of power and the place power is needed. When needed, the fuse sacrifices itself for the good of the circuit. Our purpose is to equip students to be the fuse: living sacrificial lives & being a bridge between the Source of Power (God) and the place power is needed (the world).

 

 

SEE YOU AT THE POLE (PRAYER TIME)

Wednesday, September 23  |  7:00 AM

This year, SYATP needs to happen differently due to safety restrictions. But it doesn’t have to stop us from praying for our schools. The theme this year is “Return, Restore, Revive” and the key scripture is “Josiah…turned in total repentance and obedience to God.” (2 Kings 23:25)

Wherever you are at 7:00 AM on September 23rd, will you pause and pray for this new school year?

OPEN GYM

Sundays, 4:00 – 6:00 PM / Mondays, 5:30 – 7:00 PM / Fridays, 5:30 – 7:00 PM

601 Market St – Gym

Students who desire activity and recreation sorts are invited to participate in weekly open gym times. We help teach good sportsmanship, fairness, and encouragement to students as they challenge themselves and each other as we build relationships through athletics.

To comply with CDC guidelines, students will use one ball each, be assigned to one of four courts, and sanitation of surfaces and equipment will occur consistently. Temperatures will be taken upon entry, and students will sign in with contact information in case the need for contact tracing arises.

 

 

 

 

 

Parent Resources

Below are online resources to equip you for at-home discipleship:

Scripture & Prayer
There is no tougher job and no greater calling than that of a parent. The powerful role a parent plays in their child’s life cannot be overestimated. Your kids are drawing their cues on what it looks like to follow Christ from you more than they are any other person. This can be an incredibly motivating, convicting, and overwhelming thought. You won’t always get it right or perfect. But you can always pray and lean on God’s word for direction.

Digital Engagement
This is a 12-page booklet for parents to work through and come up with a strategic game plan or code of conduct for technological engagement. Each section is intended to start with parents assessing and discussing, but also provides opportunities to bring the whole family into the discussion. There are four sections to the workbook:

Devices: Take inventory of each family member’s technological devices, assess the level of engagement in those devices, and discuss findings.

Social Media/Digital Connections: Take inventory of each family member’s social media accounts, assess the level of awareness on those platforms, and discuss findings.

Digital Code Of Conduct: Exercises to help consider ways in which a family can engage healthily and receptively in their digital reality.

Rules and Boundaries: Questions for coming up with rules and boundaries for the family.

Health & Wellness:
Help parents navigate mental health and communication by covering topics like defining mental health & mental illness, mental illness indicators & descriptions, how to have conversations with your child about mental health, and finding help for your child.

Discipleship Resources
The scripture tells us in Proverbs 22:6 — “Train up a child in the way he should go;
Even when he is old he will not depart from it.” What a seemingly simple, but overwhelmingly complicated verse! It’s one of the most quoted, but difficult tasks for a parent. These resources can be helpful as you navigate raising your children in the Christian faith.
