Last night at the Grove, we tried something completely new! We had a North Davidson theme night. North Davidson is our big public school right down the road from us. So, we wanted to do an outreach and bring them in. So, we advertised and encouraged our North students to invite students from there. So, we decorated in North colors and got gifts for all of our North students. It was great! We had about 10 students that I have never seen before which was awesome. I love meeting new students. I gave the gospel message through the story of the maniac of Gadara in Mark 5. There were several at the altar and many decisions were made. Pray that we can get more involved in our schools! Also, pray that we would make God’s name known in the city and community in which we live.
