Summer is coming...
Good news....school gets out in 8 weeks. Well that may be not so good news to some. I like it and look forward to summer. I like the freedom of late night runs to dairy queen (fingers crossed it is open by then,) love the flexibility of going out to eat after The Rock on Wednesdays with students or simply opening up the house and letting them flood the backyard. I love the sounds of the evenings and the realization the rush of homework, projects, and activities have slowed down a bit. And then there's lining up babysitters, the danger of sinking back to childhood when summer meant doing nothing which is not the same for an adult during summer because you still have to work. The late night runs bite you as you awaken to actually go to work. Rather than cold nights expecting to wake up to white yards you face sleepless nights fearing severe weather. So there are definitely two sides to every coin.
But when I think of summer and all of the above I come to one last reason to look forward to summer; REACH SUMMER CAMP. June 22-26 will be a week that will be far from the negative side of summer. This week is what we point to each year. It's a year we sum up all we've looked at and point to all we're heading into. It's a week of fun, worship, teaching, singing, playing, eating, living. A week where the central focus is the Lord, His glory and fame.
We also have an exciting week in Atlanta to look forward to as we partner with Whirlwind Mission and Tim Cummins. The opportunity here is to travel around the world while only driving an hour to Atlanta. This will take place July 13-27 with a quick stop by 6 flags on the way home. We hope to have more information about this later but for now you have the dates and the expected cost is about $100. We do have signups for both events and would love for you to begin signing up so we can prepare!
Why a blog?
A great way for parents and ministry to connect and continue the conversation of what's going on at The Rock.
