A Word From Shaffka - September 2014

Hello Parents,

This month in our Connect Groups on Sunday mornings our students will be studying God's Word through the theme of Bridging the Gap---A Look at Isaiah. This unit provides a clear picture of God's justice and grace to His chosen people. God's people were sinful and rebellious, but His grace continued to seek them for His purposes and to turn them to Himself—ultimately through His Suffering Servant. I will continue to weekly send family devotions that will lead up to the study on Sunday mornings. I hope you find these helpful for you and your student to be able to connect and to discuss what they are learning on Sunday mornings in Connect Groups.

During the week of September 14-17, we are excited to have Steve Hale with us in revival. The evening services will be at 6:00 p.m. each night. We have two youth events planned to encourage our students to invite friends that they have been praying for and hope to see their friends come to faith in Christ. On Sunday evening after the service, we will have a S.N.A.C. in the gym and fellowship hall with ice cream sundaes and banana splits. Next, on Wednesday evening at 5:00 p.m., we will have a Pizza Party in the Youth Room and Bro. Steve will be sharing God's Word on specific issues that teenagers are dealing with in today's culture. Please be in prayer as we are trying to schedule school assemblies with our area Junior High and High Schools for Bro. Steve to share his power presentation of "Be A Winner" with students.

I want to tell you church family about our upcoming event, "Faith & Family Day" on September 20th at 6:00 p.m. as the Bulldogs take on Northwestern State. Tickets are going to be only $12 on the west side of the stadium. Additionally, local Christian rap artist and DJ, Big Al is going to emcee the event that will take place in the Thomas Assembly Center. The event will play host to Louisiana Tech University student-athletes and coaches discussing with attendees their relationship with Christ and the role the Faith plays in their life and careers. If students or families are interested in going as a church group and we bring a group of 20 or more they will place our group name on Dogzilla video board during the game! If you would like to go and purchase tickets at this price for the game, then please let me know and give me your money by Sunday, September 14.

Parents, if there is anything or anyway that I can be an encouragement to you and your family, please feel free to contact me at anytime. I pray that our Heavenly Father will bless you daily with His presence and wisdom as you raise and disciple your students to walk with the Lord. May God's richest blessings be upon you and your family!

Bro. Shawn
