Ignite Student Ministry Weekly Update 11.06.17

It's Monday. What a beautiful day, though! Happy November, friends. Even though we're less than a week into this month, it's already flown by. There is a lot going on as the holiday season begins and our stewardship campaign is underway. Don't forget to take a quiet moment each day (even if just for five minutes) to reflect on the season and the blessings you've been given. For volunteering, I've created what's called a "doodle poll", or an online way to sign up for volunteering opportunities. Go ahead and click the link to sign up. As you can see, slots are filling up but there is still some need! If you've already signed up, thank you! To ...

Student Ministry Weekly Update

Happy Monday! I can't believe we've reached the end of October already. Time has flown! Student ministry has been busy this month with an overnight lock-in, new games, a halloween party, and learning more about Jesus. With only two months left until the end of the year (say what!?), we will definitely be keeping busy. Thanks to all who helped to make the fall festival and trunk or treat a success. I'm so glad our students assisted with volunteering to set-up, run games, and clean up before their own party. We are a community of disciples and it gave me such joy to see our church family embody that together yesterday! For volunteering, I've ...

Weekly Student Ministry Update 10.2.17

Happy Monday! Welcome, October! I hope everyone has had a great start to the week. I'm looking forward to the cooler weather that October will hopefully bring us soon! As I woke up this morning and heard the news of the mass shooting in Las Vegas,  my heart became heavy. I instantly think back to living in Orlando when the Pulse nightclub shooting occurred where the amount of suffering and mourning was raw and painful for all, but especially the survivors and the victims' families. It is extremely difficult to process through the amount of hate and violence we see exhibited all too consistently and frequently. I ask that you please join me in ...
