Youth Parents

We want every parent to know that your student’s spiritual growth is our top priority at First Methodist Sherman. We take great steps to ensure a safe, secure environment, where students may discover the truth in Jesus Christ. Our hope is that they connect and grow deeper in their walk with Christ. There are many ways you as a parent can get involved in supporting the spiritual growth of your student each week. There is no more important work than that of raising up committed, bold student leaders of the faith and you are critical in that equation. Please begin by spending a moment each day in prayer for this ministry. Contact the Youth Ministries office if you have any questions, or are considering volunteering to change the life of young people for Jesus!


 

Resources

We know it can be tough raising a teenager, so we wanted to offer some resources to help.

The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding is a nonprofit organization committed to building strong families by serving to bridge the cultural-generational gap between parents and teenagers. At a time when an already confusing youth culture is changing quickly, CPYU helps parents, youth workers, educators and others understand teenagers and their culture so that they will be better equipped to help children and teens navigate the challenging world of adolescence.
