#3 - KING SOOPERS REWARD PROGRAM
This is a no-brainer! Don't believe us? Let us elaborate:

1. Use this gift card to pay for groceries at King Soopers and YOUR FAMILY receives a 5% credit from each shopping purchase towards a youth group sponsored event.

Example: You use this gift card to spend $100 on groceries at King Soopers. Our team is notified of this purchase and applies $5 to YOUR FAMILY'S ACCOUNT. This credit be used to pay for Winter Retreat, Summer Camp, or any other City Youth Group sponsored event.

2. You can have more than one King Soopers Gift Card working for your family. Get a gift card for mom, dad, grandpa, grandma, and the neighbor next door. All their purchases go toward your account.

Example: Ben and Liz each have their own gift card to King Soopers purchased from City Youth Group. They add money to the gift card at checkout before paying for groceries and/or gasoline. One month, Ben spent $800 on groceries/gas, and Liz spent $200 on groceries/gas. Since they were proactive in reloading their gift cards to make these purchases, THEY WERE GIVEN $50 to be used for payment towards City Youth Group sponsored events like Winter Retreat or Summer Camp.

We are thrilled about this opportunity and excited for you to take experience the benefits. Gift cards can be purchased (for face value, so not really a purchase) for $5 at youth group events on Wednesday nights or weekend services. Sill have questions? Click here for more info.

#4 - ARTICLE OF THE WEEK
Just Let It Go: Picking Your Battles With Teenagers
By: Jonathan McKee - TheSource4Parents.com

One of my daughters walked into the kitchen to find something to eat.

"I bought some of those rolls you like for your sandwiches." I offered.

"Why would I want a sugary roll for my sandwich?"

This is how many conversations can begin with my teenagers. They aren't defiant; they probably couldn't even be classified as back talking. They're just...argumentative. Read the whole post.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTNERSHIP IN THE GOSPEL.

#4 - STUDENT MINISTRY STAFFING UPDATE
On June 1 Johanna Spille transitioned off of the Student Ministry staff. It's bittersweet, for real. We REALLY MISS Johanna and the excellence she brought to the Girls Discipleship Pastor role for Student Ministry. At the same time, we are THRILLED for Johanna as she is following God's Call to work with Denver Rescue Mission and explore ways to fight trafficking in the Denver Metro Area. The Spille Family remains committed to Southeast Christian Church so we'll still see Johanna around. Meanwhile, we have launched a search to hire a Girls Discipleship Pastor for our ministry. Of course, we will keep you updated as the hiring process unfolds.
