New Rhythms

It’s the first week of summer vacation in our house, which for us means…lots of boys, bickering and fun!   It’s also the time that we set some new rhythms in our house and make sure that we are making the most of the summer.  It’s the same for our staff and church.   We want to make the most of our summer and find some new rhythms. Summer is the perfect time to try something new and to plan on attending some of our summer activities!

All of our campuses are offering amazing opportunities to serve in the month of June.   Eagan is hosting it’s free garage sale, Cottage Grove is participating in the Strawberry Fest parade, and Woodbury is partnering with Urban Ventures and their Hands And Feet event.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in any of these events, no matter which campus you attend!

June, July and August also offer mission trips, camps, and all kinds of opportunities to serve others!  You can participate or volunteer.  Make sure to take a look around the new website, check out the events and activities going on this summer and decide on 1 or 2 that you are going to sign up for and attend.  We’d love to have you join us as we serve our communities and those all over the world.

One other thought, if you haven’t been Diggin’ Deep, I’d encourage you to join us.  We’re spending June reading through the book of James. It’s one of my favorite books in the Bible and I love how it’s tying in to our sermon series. James really encourages me to seek out ways to serve others and put my faith into action. Not because I want Jesus to like me more, but because I want others to come to know Jesus and how He loves each of us.   If you need a new rhythm of reading the Bible, it’s the perfect time to start!
