After a good summer filled with serving the church, the community, attending Student Life Camp, travel, and sports, our kids have returned to school. Did you know that we have students spanning 6 school districts? It’s a good way to think of our influence outside our walls, isn’t it?
Our Sunday Night SAIL will resume on Rally Day, September 9 as we serve up Root Beer and Cream Soda Floats for the church picnic to kick off our fall season. After that we’ll get back to our regular schedule on Sunday nights.
We’ll be starting off a new season of Bible Study and activities, with our first Study being a more in-depth look at I AM – discovering who God is, and who we are through Him. We’ll learn that I AM: Who I AM, I AM: Holy, I AM: Love, I AM: With You. Future short-term studies will include Parables, Choices, New Views of Advent and Gifts, and more. There are lots of things competing for our young people’s attention these days and it’s my goal to keep God at the center of all the things we do. Please keep our kids and their teachers/guides – both at church and at school – in prayer as this new school year begins. Pray for their wisdom, health and witness that they may be the light that others see and want to know.
