From Pastor Jim, August 5

WHY EVERY CHRISTIAN NEEDS TO FIND A GROUP

On August 23, we’ll be LAUNCHING new on-campus and in-person LifeGroups. We’ll have groups for every age and in new locations around the campus as well as online. I urge every person to find the right LifeGroup for them. We now have more options and more space for groups than ever before.


It may take some effort, but everyone can find the right group for them. Here are five reasons why you must find a group.

  • It is where you study the Bible. Acts 5:42
  • It is where you experience community John 13:34
  • It is where you develop & deploy your gifts. Romans 12:4-6
  • It is where we fight/win spiritual battles. James 5:16
  • It is how we will change the world. Acts 2:47b


STUDENT CAMP AND VBS SHINE THIS SUMMER

I want to thank all our leaders for making the extra effort required to provide safe and life-changing programs this summer.


Two weeks ago Jack Teel, our Student Minister, and his leaders took a group of over 40 teenagers to camp at Mt. Lebanon.


Last week Katie Luedecke, our Interim Preschool and Children’s Minister, led a group of volunteers to present our first evening VBS.


Two high school guys accepted Christ at student camp and three grade school girls gave their lives to Jesus during VBS. We’re praising God for His work as we raise up the next generation of believers.


I’m praying for you,


Pastor Jim
