Hey all. I have a couple questions. I've been teaching the Sunday morning youth class (6-12th grades) at my church for about a year. At first it was to be temporary and well, it's now a year later. Not complaining at all, I actually really enjoy it. Anyway, one thing I have been horrible lax in is communication with parents. I know most of them and see them in church, but don't really keep them apprised of what is going on or what we are studying. There are also those that I don't know and that I have never met. So I am wanting to get in touch with them, and I'm thinking a monthly newsletter would be the best option. Print at first and hopefully moving to email later on. So my questions are: What should I include on the newsletters? Obviously a calendar with upcoming events is a must. I would also like to include information about what we are currently studying. Should I include devotional type articles? Or thoughts from my own studies? Do you think the parents would be interested in that? Would you as a parent (if you are one) be interested in it? What about length? 1 page front only? 1 page front and back? 2 pages? This first letter will probably be the longest as I feel like I ought to "introduce" my wife and I to the parents who I don't know. Finally, do you have any recommendations for a title for the newsletter?
