Last night we spent some time reviewing Kingdom Come Dnow. We had a great time this past weekend and regretted some of our students we not able to attend. For that reason we helped set the stage last week and reviewed the weekend last night. Our heart is not to simply do an event....each event we do is intended on having a lasting impression and effect. We desire for students to grow in truth, not ride emotional roller coasters. We desire for God to the blazing center of all we do....His glory is first. We desire this for all our students, not just the ones who choose to come or are able to come. So we try and do all we can to keep all students on the same page. The last several years we have attempted to keep each activity and event centered around a theme. This year that theme is Reach. We hope students will go deeper down and further in, strengthening their knowledge of God that will be seen in their pursuit of Him, how they walk and live. DNOW was a loud echo of this. The King, Jesus, sharing what it means to live as a citizen of the kingdom, as a child of God, a follower of Christ. The message of DNOW fits so well with Reach and this ultimately points to Summer Camp where we bring it all together and leave with understanding which then leads to a changed life, for His glory and the good of others. Emotions come in as we stand and view God's greatness. We do get emotional thinking about Him but these emotions are driven by the truth of who He is, what He has done, and what He will do for our good and His glory.
So last night we spend some time looking back to help us move forward. Attached is the outline which will help you see the high points of the teaching and also some questions we asked.
There is a lot going on next week (March 21&22) for our celebration of what God is doing in the nations.
There are ministry opportunities, fellowship opportunities, learning opportunities, worship opportunities.
Saturday morning we are hosting a free yard sale, we need help. Show up at 8am ready to serve and be a presence in our community. We are also asking families to bring in food boxes. There are directions in the church bulletin for what needs to be in each box. These will be given to people as they come and go that Saturday morning.
Saturday evening is a night of fun and learning. We will have a comedian and an opportunity for your to visit the missionary booths. Sunday AM is SS round the world. Look at the list, pick out a missionary and go learn how you can get involved. Sunday PM is our closing service and night for Sunday School groups to spend some time with their assigned missionary.
So....a great, gospel centered weekend for you and the family. Please, get involved. Yes, we're busy but what a great opportunity to show the world what matters most. Hope to see you there!
