Dear Parents,

We want to welcome you and your child back to this new school year and the youth group! We are
glad to be a part of your busy lives. This quarter we will be studying from the Live Curriculum on the
book of John with a mix of youth devotionals on Friday nights and fun activities.

The Gospel of John focuses on some of the key teachings of Jesus as they pertain to our life on this
earth and our life that is to come. It will challenge your students not only to think of the kind and
quality of their lives in eternity with God, but also the way they live “eternally motivated” lives here on
this earth. Last Friday, we just looked at how Jesus is the eternal Son of God, creator (with the Father)
of all things, and the light of the world. In the next lesson, students will learn that Jesus offers eternal
life to all who believe in him. Lesson 3 of John, shows students that Jesus has made it possible for them
to live an incredible life on this earth and an eternal life after this. Lesson 4 looks at how Jesus
commands us to be known by our love for others. Lesson 5 helps students understand that Jesus equates
our expression of love for him with our obedience to him. Finally, Lesson 6 helps students see Jesus’
resurrection as the key point in history. Your students will be challenged to articulate the impact
Christ’s resurrection has had on their lives.

    1. WHAT: Christ has purchased for us a rich life on this earth and in eternity.
    2. WHY: While there should be great focus put on our eternal life with God, our life on this earth
       ought to be marked by fullness and an importance that we sometimes overlook.
    3. HOW: Your students will apply the truths they learn in this unit to living a more abundant life
       on this earth.

To support the youth activities and snacks on Friday nights, we ask that each parent donate $50 for
each child for the entire quarter. Please make a check out to University Presbyterian Church with the
“Friday Youth Group” on the Memo line.

    Please keep praying over the youth group that it will grow according to his will.
    Please pray for each teenager that he/she will grow more of a heart for God this year.
    Please pray for continual wisdom, guidance, and direction for the Youth teachers.
    Please pray for daily strength and wisdom for you as the parents as you bring up your youth.
