Kick-Off Sunday is Tomorrow Morning!

Church Family,

As our local population shifts into the annual “back-to-school” season, we will pause tomorrow in worship to pray for children around the world who are receiving an education because of your generosity.

Remember to bring with you to worship a photo of your sponsor child(ren) so we can lift these young people up to God during a special prayer time at both 9:00 and 11:15am.

If you don’t yet have a sponsor child and would like to explore entering into a relationship with one, there will be an opportunity on Sunday to learn more about finding a young person whom you can come alongside in his or her journey of educational and spiritual development.

To learn more about the transformational impact of child sponsorship, check out the research conclusions in this article from the University of Chicago Press: http://www.press.uchicago.edu/pressReleases/2013/April/0413JPEpr.html

Looking forward to a great morning of backpack blessings and prayers for young people near and far.

Chris Griggs
Senior Pastor
