Parent Meeting Agenda

At HCCYM, we meet with parents a few times a year, typically at the start of a new semester, to go over the information for the upcoming months of activities, lessons, and regular programs.  We typically do these short meetings after church in our youth area, which allows families to stay after church instead of making a special trip.  These are short meetings, but an important way to connect with parents and get them excited about our ministry.  Some of these parents are brand new to our ministry, others are veterans just curious about the calendar of events.  The goal is to give meaningful information to all the parents in attendance.

Below is the outline for our last parent meeting – I hope it will encourage you as you meet with parents this year.
