80% of students who say in church after high school said their parents provided spiritual guidance compared to 59% who had dropped out.
50% of the students who stayed involved in church said their parents discussed spiritual matters with them on a regular basis. 30% of those who have dropped out of church say they had these discussions
Those whose parents were actively involved in church, %50 stayed in church while 31% dropped out
57% of students who stayed in church said their parents expressed an expectation that they would remain in church while 39% of those who dropped out say their parents had the same expectation.
42% of students who stayed in church said their parents prayed with them regularly. 22% of students who dropped out said the same thing.
Here's what all these numbers are telling us...a parents involvement (or lack of involvement) in church plays a significant role in the life of a student. If a parent of a student is actively involved in a growing relationship with Christ will have a major impact on the spiritual life of their student. Culture might say, "don't meddle in your student's life, especially on spiritual matters...they need to choose that for themselves," but by doing that you're handing over the reigns to someone who doesn't have full use of the part of the brain allows students to make fully informed decisions.
If you want your student to grow in their relationship with Christ then you have to expect it and live it. Is your example one that is leading your student to grow in his/her relationship with Christ or is it reflecting a mindset of convenient Christianity. Is God convenient for your life or necessary? Are you portraying that to your child?
I encourage you to expect your student(s) to be at church and I encourage you to live your life as a godly example that your would proud of them to follow!

Good morning, everyone!
Rhonda asked me to forward this to you regarding “Mission May”:
Next Wednesday (May 11) is the first Mission May for the students. We need everyone to bring cookies or brownies to be served at KARM. We also need parents who are willing to provide transportation and adult leadership. We have asked the students to arrive by 5 PM to help label water bottles. We hope to depart the church by 6 and return by 8:15. We also need some drivers! What better way than to spend family time serving Knoxville!!

- Spend some time reading through the story of Abraham and Isaac together
- What difficulties do you have with what God asked Abraham to do (be real)?
- Talk about Abraham's obedience even though it was a difficult task. Verse 3 says a lot about the obedience of Abraham.
- Now talk about the faith of Abraham.
- Search through verse 5 for his faith...what does it say? What does it reveal about the faith of Abraham?
- Remember the promise that God gave Abram (before he was known as Abraham)...Isaac was the was that God was going to make Abraham's name famous in all the earth...it was through Isaac that Abraham would have many sons...and many sons had Father Abraham...I am one of them and so are you...so let's just praise the Lord...Right arm!
- Abraham said we will "come again to you." A strong statement of faith from a man being asked to do the unthinkable!
- But we also see God's provision as a response to Abraham's faith and his reverent fear.
- God provided a ram in the thicket/thorns...oh the parallel is almost too clear! God provided a sacrifice in the thorns as a substitute for Isaac! Oh please tell me you see this!
- Talk with your student(s) about the atoning sacrifice of Christ.
- Now you see how the story of Abraham points to Jesus...be open to seeing more ways the OT points to the coming work of the Messiah.
- Pray as a family that more people would know His sacrifice and trust in its salvation...pray for you student this week...pray for this ministry this week...pray that you would make much of Jesus!
