Shout Out to Amazing Parents!

Welcome FBC Warner Parents! It’s been a great start to 2018 with God moving mightily within our church and student ministry. 
We’ve held our first of two mission trip meetings already; our second and final mandatory meeting for all participants going with us to Des Moines, Iowa, will be Sunday, March 4th, at 5:00pm inside the Eagle’s Nest. A $50 non-refundable deposit is due this Sunday, February 18th. If you have any questions regarding payment or the trip itself we’d be more than happy to answer those questions!
This weekend, February 16th-17th, is our annual student conference “The Lift Tour.” We’re taking a solid group of students this year to Tulsa. The plan is to leave around 3:15-3:30pm on Friday. The cost is $65 not counting Saturday’s spending money. $30 is due on or before we leave Friday. The second half of the fee can be paid later after we return. 
We’ve been in an amazing preaching series with our students on Wednesday nights called “Jesus Changes Everything.” We’ve spent all month long in January talking about how Jesus changes us, our very self, by diving deep into the salvation process. This month it’s all about how Jesus changes our relationships!

This week’s new tool for you to put in your parenting toolbox comes once again from the  website Be sure to click the link below to read this insanely cool article. 
In the article, author Jay Younts prays specifically over you mom, dad, grandparent, and it’s a prayer that we all need during this time of year. The tool of prayer is so powerful, and I believe the most powerful prayers aren’t necessarily the ones we offer, but rather the ones we receive from others. So take just a few moments and read over this prayer that’s tailored just for you! Take a look at all of these amazing articles if you haven’t done so. 
This week’s encouragement comes from Proverbs 14:26 which says, “Whoever fears the Lord has a secure fortress, and for their children it will be a refuge.”
We all want security and protection for our children, right?! It’s want we want for our precious Shiloh! So the promise here is that when we as parents fear the Lord–walk with him, following him in reverence, submit to his will–it means we have found a secure fortress! But that’s not even the best news…our kiddos see that relationship we have with the Lord, they see our respect and reverence we have for God, and they will follow in our foot steps! Let’s lead our children to the refuge of the Redeemer by choosing to follow God and letting Him be supreme Lord for our children to see! 
You are the number one spiritual voice, influence, and role model in your child’s life! Keep feeding their soul with godly affirmations, and may God give you everything you need for the journey!
