I hope that this email finds you having a fantastic day! It is Friday, which means the Grove update is coming your way. I hope that this simple newsletter will better connect with you with the Grove and its events.
Our featured Event: Team Jamaica! We will be leaving a week from today to fly to Jamaica on a mission trip. We will be ministering in the public school system, in the local church, and several other avenues there in the city of Montego Bay. Please join us in prayer for this trip, and if you would like to donate money to the team, you can respond to this email, and I can help you out with that. Above all, please pray for our team. Pray for safety, but also that God would use us greatly there, and that lives would be radically changed in Jamaica.
Our Featured Resource: Today’s resource is an article entitled, “Dad, can I download this song?” I am sure that in today’s culture, you and your teenager have been faced with some music questions and topics in the home. What is okay to listen too? What is not okay to listen too? Now, first, it should glorify God. That is music’s purpose. It does not take a rocket scientist to see this or the lack thereof in music. Parents, we must control and teach our students to discern what they listen too. I want you to read this article written from a parent about this subject. Hope this helps you.
