How to Give Your Kids “Sticky Faith”
Help your freshman
Only 1 in 7 youth group graduates feel their faith is ready for what they will face after high school. Since the first two weeks of a students’ college freshman year set the trajectory for the remaining years in school, you can help your new student by working with them to create a “Two-Week Calendar” that includes choices about when they will attend classes, study, work – as well as when (and how) they will try to make new friends. In addition, since 40 percent of college freshmen report difficulty in finding a church, help them research worship options online ahead of time and include them in the calendar.
