Youth Parent Resources

Welcome to the Parent Resource Page for FPC Youth Ministries!  The vision of FPC is to love and lead all people to deeper life in Jesus Christ.  This page is part of that!  Below you will find all sorts of resources, ideas and encouragement as you navigate the adolescent years with your child.  We want to support you and walk alongside you and your child through these very important years.  This is just one way of doing that.

If you have a resource that has been particularly helpful to you as a parent, grandparent or adult in the life of a child, let us know about it!  Maybe we can include it here!

Faith that Sticks

Sticky Faith Parents click here

  • The goal of this movement is to help teenagers develop Sticky Faith.  By “Sticky Faith” we mean a combination of characteristics, all of which exist in a dynamic tension…
    • Faith that is both internalized and externalized: a faith that is part of a student’s inner thoughts and emotions, and is also externalized in choices and actions that reflect that faith commitment.  These behaviors include regular attendance in a church/campus group, prayer and Bible reading, service to others, and lower participation in risk behaviors, in particular sex and alcohol (two behaviors we are studying specifically).  In other words, Sticky Faith involves whole-person life integration, at least to some degree.
    • Faith that is both personal 1 and communal:  a faith that celebrates God’s specific care for each person while always locating faith in the global and local community of the Church.
    • Faith that is both mature and maturing:  a faith that shows marks of spiritual maturity but is also in process of growth.  We don’t assume a high school senior or college freshman (or a youth worker for that matter) will have a completely “mature” faith.  We are all in process.
