The teen years can be a time where students and parents can drift apart, but the gospel can redeem this season. The gospel can transform not only our adulthood but adolescence. Jaquelle Crowe, the author of This Changes Everything, has been featured on Desiring God, Crossway and The Gospel Coalition–and did we mention she is only 19! She wrote the book as a teenager for teenagers. Jaquelle will be coming with her father, Sean Crowe, to encourage and empower students and parents to discuss faith, relationships and the church.
We invite parents and students to attend this conference on August 4 (7:30-9:30PM) to get the conversation started on how the gospel transforms everything. Please register online by HERE.
As Living Hope desires to do ministry and be faithful stewards of the space and resources God has given us, we are excited to announce that the Patio Renovation is about to begin! We will post regular updates on the progress of the renovation. To view detailed plans, photos and updates CLICK HERE.
