Good morning or afternoon! Hope everyone is well and gearing up for Spring Break. You can feel the tide turning from winter to summer. Spring comes in and adds this fresh new, warm breeze that reminds us change is coming. I had the opportunity to participate in a funeral service yesterday and as I prepared and participated one word screamed out to me. That word was HOPE. Hope is an incredible thing. We all hope is something. We all hold fast to a person, situation, future event, raise, something that we think will make the present suffering worth it. We all do this but I pray at the top is this living hope we have in Christ. If we believe the Bible to be true and to be God's word we know that not even death, the worst that could happen, can extinguish the flame of Hope in Christ. We often don't think of hope when things are well but as soon as they turn dark or hard we look for something to hope in. Many students and adults today are simply hoping in, turning to, the wrong thing. As followers we must cling to Jesus and live in a way that makes Him the blazing center of our lives. In doing so we not only reap the benefits of experience true hope but we also scream to the world around us that there is something much bigger to live for in this life. Take hope that spring is coming, take hope that Sunday is coming, take hope that one day Jesus is coming and will wipe away every tear. Hope
GIMC & Reach Summer Camp
Hoping you make it down this far for two huge events we need to tell you about.
1. This weekend is our Missions Celebration weekend (GIMC.) This is a great way for the church to hear about missions, learn about missions, get involved with missions, celebrate missions. Please take note of two huge ways for students to get involved.
2. Reach Summer Camp - We need to begin our sign ups. Not sure the best way to get the word out other than to call you all personally. We'll save that for later but for now spread the word. "It's time to sign up for camp." Tell anyone you know that attends the Rock and while you're at it....make sure they are getting the blogs. This is the best way we know to contact everyone with all the happenings of The Rock SM.
Thanks for your involvement in this ministry and please join us in prayer as we seek to honor God through leading students to know and follow Christ.
Why a blog?
A great way for parents and ministry to connect and continue the conversation of what's going on at The Rock.
