Student Events


Art of Neighboring (Follow Up Conversations) 

We wanted to let you know about the next step with regards to The Art of Neighboring series we just completed. This series was covered not just in the Sunday morning worship services, but in our preschool, elementary and student environments during the month of October.

We wrapped up the series for students with a combined event on Sunday night with other churches and student ministries in Union County. We had over 250 students attend this collective gathering! At the end of the night, we split up the students into the following groups based on schools to consider how to be more intentional towards the people around us, whether that happens to involve a school, team, group, club, etc.

The purpose of dividing up by schools was to begin a conversation where the focal point was directed on a more common environment other than our churches. What could be done to reach the students in "our community" with the Gospel? What are ways we could begin to love "our neighbors" in a way that could have eternal impact?

Our hope is that the conversation didn’t end once everyone left! In an effort to keep the conversation going, we have created follow up gatherings to bring these students together, regardless of which church they attend. Please see below for the dates, times and locations. Even if the gathering isn’t hosted by Southbrook, we would like to encourage you to be a part of the conversation at one of our partner churches.

For those of you who fall into the Homeschool/all other schools category, our intention was not to make any of you feel slighted by not being separated out! Our student ministries are represented by a lot of schools, and it was clear last night this group had the most students! One of the things we will do at the next gathering (at Five Stones on 11/6) is to try to divide it up further based on who attends the gathering. We appreciate your grace as we try to figure out how to include all students!

If you have any questions about any of these gatherings, please let me know. We are excited to see what God will do through these conversations, and we would appreciate you praying along with us!

Sunday December 1 - NO Student Groups

In observance of Thanksgiving weekend and the number of students and leaders who will be traveling, we will NOT be meeting. We hope and trust that you and your family will take advantage of the holiday break through some quality time with one another!
