For Parents

For Parents
It is our desire to come alongside parents to help them prepare their son or daughter for life after high school. We strive to do this by partnering with parents to “pack their bags” for life after high school. We hope to pack their bags with deep truth, deep lives and deep love.

We recognize that as our students get older, communication can become increasingly more difficult due to busy schedules and students’ independence. We want to do our best to inform you of what is happening in the WSEFC Student Ministries, using as many different avenues as possible. In addition to emails that you may get from Life Group leaders, the primary ways the WSEFC Student Ministries communicates are:

Engage E-mail Newsletter – This is a monthly email that goes out to parents to inform you of upcoming events, an overview of what the students are learning, and needs we may have in the ministry. If you do not currently receive the e-newsletter and would like to be added to the email list, contact April Forster.

Texting Reminders – An effective way to remind students and parents of youth events that are happening and communicate the most up to date information possible. On average, we send about 2 text reminders a week. It is very easy to sign-up! Text the message “@shwsefc” to 81010.

 WSEFC Facebook PageClick this link and ask to join the group. We try to update the Facebook page regularly with event details, times, and locations.

Paper Fliers – Paper copies of information (Calendars, forms, remind-text information) can be found on the wall in the “Connection Corner” outside the Youth Cafe.

Rescue Team – Many parents desire to get involved with our Student Ministry, but may not have the time to make a regular weekly commitment as a Life Group leader. If that is you, please join our Rescue Team! When needs arise, we’ll contact you to help. Click this link to sign up.

We look forward to partnering with you and your teenager as they continue to develop their relationship with God. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Senior High Pastor Jason Barthelemy.
