Hey Seniors’ and Seniors’ families, I just wanted to remind you that Senior Sunday is just around the corner (May 15th). If you have not already, I need for you to please let me know ASAP if you/your student will be participating in our recognition during our morning services. If they/you are able to join us here is some info and things I need from you: 1. We’ll be honoring graduates at the start of both services (9:30am & 11am) Students will need to wear their cap and gown for this. I also need 5-6 photos of your graduate (from childhood-now) for our slideshow. I need these no later than Sunday May 8th. Please submit these to me digitally. 2. In between services we would like for our congregation to have the opportunity to greet and congratulate our graduates. To facilitate this we will make space available for each graduate at the info center where additional pictures can be displayed and students and families can be stationed to be greeted. Praying for you all often, and excited to join in this celebration! -Todd
Hey Church Family, With summer just around the corner, our annual youth summer camp will be here soon. Our hope this year is to take 70 campers (students and sponsors). We are well on our way to this and we’re seeking out members of our church family to partner one to one with each of our campers in a program we call “Adopt-A-Camper”. Here’s what we are hoping for from each person who partners with us: 1. A financial donation of any amount. This donation will help defray the cost of camp for all of our students. All donations will be spread across all campers. 2. A commitment to pray. When you agree to adopt a camper you will be given a prayer band to remind you to pray for our campers in the week leading up to camp as well as during Super Summer. I will additionally send out prayer prompts by text to help guide you on how to pray for our students. 3. A commitment to encourage. As camp approaches you will be paired with a particular student. You will receive a picture of them so you can put a name with a face. Using this we are hoping you can encourage your student before and after camp. Additionally I will provide addressed envelopes so you can send notes of encouragement to your student which they will receive while at Super Summer. We are looking for 70 adopters, to cover every one of our campers, so chances are we need you! Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us? -Todd Brown
