We have had an amazing time of learning and equipping our teenagers with Impacting-Your World on Wednesday night at REFUGE through the month of June. I want to thank all the parents and youth workers that have helped to make the evenings go so smoothly. I especially want to thank Ashley Maxwell, Denise Matthews, and Shannon Meyers in helping to prepare food to allow our students to experience a little taste of different cultures. Special thank you to our speakers for Impacting Your World:
May 28 - Mormonism & Jehovah's Witness - Bro. Mike Holloway
June 4 - Hinduism - Ashton Sistrunk, Ashley's friend that served in Hindu country
June 11 - Atheism - Harold Henderson
June 18 - Islam - Steve & Anna Gilbert
June 25 - Wicca & Witchcraft - Scott Sullivan. Equipping Pastor at FBC Haughton, LA.
Church family, I would like to ask you to be in prayer for our students as they will encounter people in Ruston that believe in these religions.
I also want to ask you be in prayer for our students this summer as we go to M-fuge this month. In one of the mission tracks, they will have the opportunity to minister to people of different religions. Parents of students that are attending M-fuge, please make sure you get the remaining balance for camp turned in as soon as possible at the first of the month of July. Please make sure you also get all medical release forms turned in no later than Wednesday, July 11. We will be loading luggage on Sunday morning right after our morning worship service. We will be meeting at the church on Monday morning, July 14, at 4:30-AM to load up and head out for Belmont University in Nashville, TN. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at the church office or on my cell.
Moms, you should have received an updated calendar of the Breakfast Club and SNAC schedule. If you did not receive one, please let me know and I will email you the schedule. I want to thank y'all again for helping out with bringing breakfast and snacks. I believe these are a great opportunity for our teenagers to connect with each other and encourage each other in their walk with Christ. We are very grateful for your kindness and your willingness to serve our students.
- In His Grip, Bro. Shawn
