As I write, middle schoolers and high schoolers are pouring out of buses and into our parking lot after a stellar five days at Branch Camp! I’ve already had the opportunity to greet many of them. Tons of fun was had, new friendships were made,, and big steps were taken by many of our teens in their walk with God. I’m told six students were baptized last night!
There’s a huge team of volunteers and staff members that made so much of this possible, along with our student ministers, Josh Brake and Ketch Smith. Thank you all!
With Branch Camp concluded, Kids Branch is back in full operation in our services this weekend!
We launched a new series, “Meals With Jesus,” this past weekend. I had the opportunity to listen to both Jason Schumacher’s message (FB Campus) and Ryan Rainey’s message (VR Campus), and they were exceptional, thought-provoking, and touching. If you missed them, check them out online!
I’m looking forward to sharing the next message in this series this coming weekend (Join us Thursday night or Sunday!).
I’m also looking forward to diving into Sack Summer Hunger this coming weekend as we continue to meet real needs in our surrounding communities. Sack Summer Hunger happens at 9:30 a.m. on both campuses every Saturday thru August 11th.
Have a fun, grateful, and safe Independence Day tomorrow.
Grace and Peace,
See You Thursday Night or Sunday!
