Parent Resources

Fuel Student Ministry Family Fuel Large Body

Our desire is to partner with parents to create a culture of invested followers of Jesus Christ. Below is a list of resources that will be helpful to both students and parents. To view our complete Family Resource list as a document, click here.

Current Discipleship Community Series (Sunday Morning - All Students): 

Apologetics 102: Framing Your Defense

Students will each be given a workbook that they are expected to bring with them each Sunday. This workbook is filled with devotions and content specific to each week's Discipleship Community lesson. Click here to see what your students are learning.

Fuel Series (HS Sunday Night & MS Wednesday Night):

Life Change

The series is based on the book by Jordan Easly, with the same title. Don't be fooled by the title, though. This is not a self-help series, but rather a study of specific stories in the book of Mark. Each week, we will examine a person whose life was changed, not by anything they were able to do on their own, but by the power of Jesus.

SafeEyes is a terrific tool for families, students and accountability groups. Did you know that 90% of 8-16 year-olds have viewed porn online (most while doing homework)?

An internet filter can protect your teens from stumbling onto this junk accidentally and keep your family safe online.
