Did you know that you can find our annual calendar on the KSM website?
When we decided to update the Kirk Student Ministry page on the Kirk website, we knew that we had to implement a few things that were not negotiable. One of the biggest additions to the KSM website is our annual calendar.
We are always looking for ways to communicate better to our people about what is going on in the Kirk Student Ministry and one of the best ways is through this calendar. We review and update it every week, so be sure to reference the calendar whenever you are referencing your family’s calendar. You can find our live annual calendar on our main page when you scroll all the way down.
Calling all High School Students
Wednesday, February 20th
We are having our High School D Group Date Night this Wednesday. It is nothing to be intimidated about. You can even wear sweatpants if you want! This is just a Wednesday night for all High School students, girls and guys, to go out as a group, have fun, have intentional conversation, and practice what we are talking about on Sunday nights. If you are wanting more details about the High School D Group Date Night, please contact Jonathan Jakes (email@example.com) or Celena Dayoub (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We hope to see all our Dads at Dads Night. The night is for any Dad of any teen. This is a great night to connect with the male leaders of the Student Ministry and meet the guys that are pouring into the lives of your teenager. It will be a great night to connect and have intentional conversation over food and drinks. Appetizers are on us, but feel free to grab anything else for yourself during the evening.
