LAUNCH OF Z-NIGHT:
Monthly Middle School Event
What an interesting, overwhelming and exciting time of life our middle schoolers are living! We at Vista know that this is a crucial time of development, social connection, and influence. Giving our youth a space to meet – connect – worship – and hear the word of God is such a gift. Thank you for supporting our middle school ministry expansion!
Our monthly Z-nights have been a hit with our middle school population. In addition to our kids showing up to worship, they are bringing friends and neighbors with them. This is our call and our prayer – that God will use us in this place to reach teens and their families to know Him better and build community around Him.
Z nights are held monthly (will break for summer). We will be hosting an End of School Year BASH on May 21st
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up,
just as in fact you are doing.” – 1 Timothy 4:12
The Middle School years are often an interesting and precarious time in a student’s life; parental influences are waning, outside influences are increasing. They are discovering their identity and who they want to be. In many ways it would be easy to look at them as being at the beginning of not only a new phase of life, but really life itself. Although, we could see this as a “point A” in their lifelong journey, what if instead we looked further, to who they could be, character traits we would love to help them develop, and see the amazing person God has created them to be? We want to look at the end, the long term, and use that as a guide to influence us as we influence them, to start with “Z” in mind…
That’s what Z is all about!
