Summer Is Here

June 9, 2008

Summer has already officially begun!  No, not the summer solstice, but the 3D Ministry summer.  This past weekend we hosted at our own building our in-town retreat for middle school students, called Breakthrough!  It was an amazing weekend.  We talked about Philippians 3:10-14 where Paul lays out some athletic imagery.  Paul speaks about a race we run, not one of status and advancement, but one of humility and service.  He also spoke about a goal and we have our eyes on the goals that matter within the Kingdom.  Of course with any athletic imagery there is the idea of obstacles and we fought the gladiators literally and spiritually.  Lastly, Paul speaks of the prize and although our prize is in Heaven, it is much more;  It is the already, but not yet.  Our prize is being active participants of the Kingdom here on earth and the satisfaction of Heaven when we leave.

On top of the gospel message of the weekend our middle school students also welcomed a great class of sixth graders.  These guys and gals worked hard all weekend and were so great to get to know.

Coming up in our summer is the Middle School boys mission trip to Impact Church in Houston and Mexico for High School students.

We are excited that summer has begun!  We are excited that you and your children are joining us in this spiritual journey and mission!

Enjoy the summer as a family and as a faith family.  We Praise God for you and the mission He has given us!

It’s Worth It!
