A new era in our youth ministry began last Saturday as Marshall Macon organized a bowling outing with some of our young people. He said that there were about 12 in attendance. Thanks to parents and other adults who drove and chaperoned. I know that once school gets started, schedules will become busy, but try to keep youth events and devotionals on your schedule too. We know everyone cannot make every event, but it’s a great way for young people to get to know each other better and to encourage them.
LETTER FROM VINCE
Greetings from Lakeland, Florida. Tiffany, Ellis, and I are getting settled in our new apartment. With classes just a day away, I am getting so excited for my new adventure. I am writing to thank you again for supporting my family and me as I attend the Florida School of Preaching. I have been so humbled by the experience of raising funds and seeing how God works through providence. Over the course of the next two years I will try to give regular updates on my classes and work at the school. I do hope to come see the congregations that are supporting me over the course of the two years while at the FSOP. Again, I am so thankful for your support.
In Christian Love,
(P. S. I have spoken with Vince on the phone this week and he reports a good beginning to his classes. There are 5 full-time students this semester and 3 part time students).
Locally, school begins tomorrow. Remember to slow down as you drive and be especially alert in the hours when school begins and ends. Let’s pray for a good school year for our young people and their teachers. Pray for their growth in learning and social development. Pray for their safety. Pray that our young people will grow up like Jesus. He was submissive to his parents and He grew intellectually, physically, socially and spiritually – Luke 2:51-52.
