Transitions is a Community Group designed especially for Parents of Jr and Sr High Students (grades 6-12).
Change is coming; transitions are inevitable. Parenting junior and senior high students can be a wild ride. It can be exciting and joyful, or daunting and scary. We are not a group that pretends everything is "just fine". We encourage one another to be honest and seek answers in our relationship with Jesus Christ as we stand shoulder to shoulder during this transitional season of family life.
When We Meet
We meet each Sunday at 10:45 am in Room 1410 on the First Floor across from the Journeys Coffee Bar. No registration is required.
You are welcome to visit at any time. Transitions meets at the same time as the Rock Student Ministry so that you and your students may attend worship services together.
