What is going on? As you can see, it is Thursday and not Friday. I am sending this newsletter a day early so I do not have to worry about it while down at Word of Life Camp. We leave late tonight, and will be gone all through next week. Pray for the group going that everyone will be impacted and changed! I have included several things in this newsletter that I feel will be a help to you.
Our featured Event: Summer Sizzlers! I want to encourage you as the parent to continue to teach your students the importance of being a part of a weekly gathering at a local church! I think so often we prioritize so many other things over the dedication to the local church that we are teaching a generation that church is not a priority. I encourage and urge you to send your students out on Sunday’s and Wednesday’s. We have services along with a student Bible fellowship at 10 am on Sunday. Then, on Wednesday we have a large service with all students. Our Wednesday program begins at 6:30 pm and ends at 8 pm. Come expecting God to work.
Our Featured Resource: Today’s resource comes from Jonathan McKee on behalf of Jim Burns. In this article, Jim discusses the 6 essentials for making discipline work in your home. Kids do not discipline, but as a parent, it is part of the territory Here is a helpful article to discipline effectively.
- July 11 – Summer Sizzlers – Our summer sizzler program is our Wednesday night summer program. The Grove meets in the fellowship hall during the summer, and begins at 6:30 pm and ends at 8:00 pm. Invite your friends to join you. We were not able to meet this past week, but will kick things back off this Wednesday!
- July 6-14 – WOL Camp – We will be leaving for Word of Life Camp in Hudson, FL this Friday morning at 1:00 A.M. The complete payment ($320) along with the medical form and camper information form need to be turned in before we leave. I attached all forms for those attending camp to this email.
- July 19-20 – Operation Getaway – The price jumped from $85 to $100 for all late registrations. This includes a cook out, Braves game, six flags pass, and a night in a nice hotel. You can still sign up. Please see Pastor Josh ASAP. The complete payment needs to be in by Sunday, July 15th.
