5th grade parents,

Your boys received their 7 Virtues Of Manhood books today. If you did not get a copy of the book and a parent guide at the parent meeting last month, a copy of each of those is in your son’s backpack today for you.

Taking the time to go through this book with your son will have a big impact on him. Here are the things we mentioned at the parent meeting that will help make it the most meaningful:

  • Set aside a time for him for each chapter
  • See the schedule inside the parent guide
  • Read the chapter and discussion guide first
  • Make it special
  • Communicate with your son’s mentor when you think they can help your son with something
  • Memorize verses with him

You can also visit the site for more information and don’t hesitate to reach out to me at anytime

In Christ,

This year we want to give boys a chance to learn more about what it means to be a man while spending time with an adult that is teaching them about manhood. So, we are hosting a monthly breakfast focusing on the 7 Virtues of Manhood at school.

Our 7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfasts are for elementary grade boys (1-6) and their adult hosts.

The format will be as follows:

  • Start at 7:15 in the fellowship hall and enjoy Chick-fil-A breakfast around the tables, while sitting with others from your son’s grade as much as possible.
  • Hear what the virtue means from a 6th grade boy
  • Learn the virtue in more detail through a 7 minute lesson from one of our leaders
  • Spend the majority of the time working around the table with your boys with age appropriate questions and activities
  • End by 7:55

The boys will be dismissed to chapel from the breakfast. Adult hosts are welcome to join us for chapel from 8:00-8:30 in the sanctuary or depart after breakfast.

Register for The True Friend Breakfast - Friday, Sept. 6

Dates for the year:

  • Sept 6 - True Friend
  • Oct 18 - Humble Hero
  • Nov 1 - Servant Leader
  • Jan 10 - Pacesetter
  • February 7 - Bold Adventurer
  • March 20 - Noble Knight
  • April 3 - Faithful Follower

Because of the nature of this breakfast, each boy must have an adult host in order to attend. If one adult is going to be hosting multiple boys, please enter them as part of the group registration, even if that person has already registered with another boy. For families with special circumstances, please reach out to me and one of the school based mentors will host your son, or we can discuss another option.

We look forward to seeing you September 6th.
