It’s not always easy to know how to talk to our kids about the big topics. And yet, instinctively we know that we can’t avoid them because the culture around us is ready to fill in the blanks.

But how are you going to tackle these topics with your kids? ...

Psalm 121 is a strong reminder of God as the source of our strength, our help, protector and provider. It's a comforting psalm, a reassuring psalm, but what if you still struggle with anxiety? What if you want to trust God, but find the hills around you too scary? What if any change in your life leads you to discomfort and overwhelming fear?...Keep Reading

As Pastor Micah showed us from Psalm 126, joy is an important part of the Christian life. Jesus has not come to simply make us obedient or dutiful, but that our joy would be complete (John 15:11).

Summer 2017 has been a challenging season for South Shores Youth. Lots of change to work through as some of us step up a grade, others make a school move, others of us say goodbye to a beloved leader, and still others dealing with long times away from friends.
