MAXlife Parent Resources

MAXlife Parent Resources

The middle school years can be tough not only for your teen, but for you as a parent. Friendships, dating, a pursuit of independence, social media, school pressures, faith and spiritual questions... so many challenging parenting obstacles all jam packed in such a few short years. But, oh how important those years are! At MAXlife, it’s not our desire to take your place as the spiritual leader of your teen. It’s our desire to partner with you as you lead your teen to grow in their faith and live their lives for God.
You have dreams and goals for your teen, and we want to champion those goals with you. Below is a snapshot of actions your teen can take in an effort to grow in their character and faith.


Families of middle schoolers, we've got you covered!

We meet in person on Sundays, but if you aren't able to join us at that time, are you still down to hang out? Check out our MAXlife Online YouTube playlist for an updated MAXlife experience each week and feel free to invite your friends...there are infinite open seats. We're also providing online resources you will not want your family to miss out on. Give us a follow on all of our social media below, sign up for our weekly emails and we'll do the rest. It's that easy! Don't forget to get the devos sent to you every week by texting "MAXlife" to 86677.

Goals for every MAXlife student:

- Attend MAXlife weekly, whether in-person or online
- Freedom to ask questions they have about their faith or life 
- Connect with other students and MAXlife leaders
- Invite ALL of their friends that don't have a Church home to MAXlife and Meck
- Attend Meck's weekend services with their parents
- Have a daily quiet time with God by reading your bible, journaling and praying
- Attend All MAXlife Events 
- Know they are never alone

Check out the resources below to help you reach your goals for your teen and family.
