I hope you and your families are having a great summer and enjoying the blessings God has provided! As you know, our summer ministry is going fantastic. We had an amazing Student Camp with 165 youth, a moving Baptism Celebration Sunday with 34 people publicly expressing their faith and our new sermon series "Road Trip" has enjoyed a great start!
I wanted to take this moment to reach out and encourage you during the summer break to continue to communicate with your groups. It has been a delight to hear how so many groups are gathering for barbecues and bowling outings. Great stuff, keep it up!
Last, I wanted to share some details of the upcoming Community Groups season with you. I am very excited as the Lord continues to provide direction and clarity as we grow to impact the community around us.
